Various Recrystallizations of CL-20 (HNIW hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane).
Impact sensitivity testing was performed using a modified Bureau of Mines (MBOM) impactor manufactured by Safety Management Services, Inc., shown in Figure 1. Type-12 tooling was utilized on this machine with a 2.5kg impactor and matching intermediate mass. This particular machine is capable of a maximum drop height of 115cm with 0.1cm increments, though 1cm increments are typically used. Sample material was placed (35 ± 2mg) onto 1 inch squares of Norton brand 180A Garnet sandpaper. Positive results were detected visually or audibly by the operator as smoke, flash, report, charring/tearing of the sandpaper, etc.
