RDX loading density of greater than 98% TMD (3) created conditions for recrystallization of RDX (from released occluded cyclohexanone) into large crystal structures. These large RDX crystal structures are void less, therefore not allowing Hot Spots for a shock stimulus to generate the conditions needed to start and sustain a chemical reaction.
