Octogen (HMX) is used exclusively for military purposes to implode fissionable material in nuclear devices, as a component of plastic-bonded explosives, as a component of rocket propellant, and as a high explosive buster charge.
Hexogen (RDX) can be used alone as a base charge for detonators or mixed with another explosive such as TNT, which produce a bursting charge for aerial bombs, mines, and torpedoes or as an ingredient in plastic bonded explosives.
Penthrite (PETN), one of the most powerful and most bristant explosive, is used in the manufacture of detonating fuse, detonators, industrial explosive slurries and plastic explosives. If phlegmatized with wax, it is used in various types of ammunition.
Military grade TNT is widely used as a bursting charge for high explosive shells, aircraft bombs, grenades, naval mines and etc. It is also used in boosters, detonators, demolition charges and as an ingredient in slurries and for mining industries.
ANFO has a wide variety of applications in dry hole blasting conditions. It is one of the most cost effective blasting agents available for use in large hole diameter mining through to small hole diameter quarrying. ANFO provides excellent heave energy.
Boosters are made of cast TNT/RDX mixtures with an integrated primer charge of pressed tetryl or PETN which produces high velocity of detonation and detonating pressures, ensuring reliable initiation of bulk and cartridge explosives.
