RDX AND ITS COMPOUNDS

Solar provides a complete range of High Performance Explosives and its compositions from its “State-of-TheArt” manufacturing plants. Solar also produces latest insensitive RDX which offers significant advantage by reducing shock sensitivity level of RDX based compositions.

Solar also manufactures RDX coated with high melting waxes and synthetic polymers such as Viton for pressing applications providing an enhanced phlegmatization effect resulting in less sensitivity. The modern production facility has well defined and documented Quality Management System. Laboratory having latest comprehensive testing facilities with NABL accreditation ISO/IEC-17025-2017.

Application

  • RDX compositions have uses in variety of Military and Civil applications :
  • Melt-casted and pressed military charges.
  • Cast Cured charges for Insensitive Munitions (IM).
  • Pyrotechnics (cap-relay, cutting cords, detonators).
  • Initiation and main charges for oil well perforating charges.

System Description

Economic Explosives Limited, a subsidiary of Solar Industries India Ltd., Nagpur, has successfully established production of Multi Mode Hand Grenade as per TOT obtained from TBRL (DRDO).

Multi Mode Hand Grenade as a replacement of the vintage Hand Grenade M 36, offers numerous advantages to the Soldier in terms of Safety, Dual Mode capability and Lethality.

Multi Mode Hand Grenade offers the following advantages :

  • Twin Delay Tubes provided to ensure High Reliability.
  • Additional safety to the soldier through minimum 0.5 Sec Arming Delay.
  • Battle field supremacy to the soldier with dual mode capability :'Defensive Mode' & 'Offensive Mode' through quick change.
  • 3800 numbers of fragments with uniform fragmentation pattern for higher Lethality.

Defensive Mode

In Defensive Mode, the Grenade is complete as it is assembled with its Fragmenting Sleeve. This mode is used while the soldier is in a shelter and the enemy is in the open. Lethal radius is achieved up to 1Om from the point of burst.

Offensive Mode

In Offensive Mode, the Grenade is without its Fragmenting Sleeve and is used for ‘Low Intensity Contiict’ as it offers stunning effect only. This mode is used whi le the soldier is in attacking mode. Lethal radius is achieved up to 5m f rom the point of burst.

Salient Features

  • Modular Design
  • Multi Mode concept :
  • 1- Defensive Mode
  • 2- Offensive Mode
  • High Splinter Density
  • Additional Safety to soldier through Arming delay
  • Easy to prime and un-prime
  • Light Weight
