During the recrystallisation process different grain size classes of material are obtained, and the product received may then be phlegmatised with waxes or fluoroelastomers.

With the ability to manufacture these high explosive materials, NITRO-CHEM also offers compositions based on RDX and HMX e.g. Comp. B, Comp, A-3, Comp. A-4, Comp. A-5, compositions with wax or Vition and other like TNT/RDX, TNT/HMX, TNT/PETN, TRITONAL.
