Benefits

  • Many references of detonating cords can be made available that will be selected on the basis of the targeted application and their associated environmental conditions.
  • Geometrical section can vary in diameter from ~1.5mm to ~5mm for detonating cords with traditional circular section. Flat section is also possible for specific applications.
  • Depending again on the considered application, detonating cords can be delivered in different conditioning sets from simple straight strands of few centimetres to ~300 meters long rolls.
  • The metallic envelope can be made of lead or aluminium and the explosive core is most generally made of RDX, HMX or HNS.
  • For transmission functions, detonating cords are covered by a specific plastic coating and/or armoured braiding to form a transmission line.

Applications

  •  Detonating transfer lines
  • Pyrotechnic delays for military warheads
  • Canopy severance
  • Frangible joint assembly
