Title: H.E. formulation. Quarterly report, July--September, 1964

Abstract

Emphasis was placed this quarter on the manufacture of extrudable explosives. This included the recrystallization of PETN which was used to manufacture two batches of LX-02-1 and one batch of RX-02-AK. The materials were examined for composition, extrudability and burning via detonation velocity. Also, a Sunburst and Sunray were performed on the first batch of LX-02 made. Results were all satisfactory except for detonation velocity; some of the channels were yielding somewhat erratic results which could be due either to the test or incomplete mixing. The recrystallization of PETN progressed satisfactorily and the final crystals as viewed under the microscope had the expected appearance.
