Linear explosives are lines of energetic material encased in a material, which when detonated create a uniform linear cutting action.
We have embraced our global leadership role to progressively replace our lead-sheathed linear explosives with environmentally conscious materials. We’re dedicated to sustainability business practices while still providing the most effective linear explosives to withstand high temperatures and provide the high performance that thousands of customers have come to rely on.
Our linear explosives – an explosive powder/material loaded into a tube that’s formed into long lengths – are manufactured in multiple sheaths including lead, tin, copper, silver and aluminum. We possess the ability to load high explosives (such as HNS, PBXN-5, HMX, and PETN) and deflagration materials (rapid deflagration material, time delay mixes, auto-ignition powders and more) to support a variety of linear parts and assemblies.
