Designed for structure and confined space defeat
HELIX™ High Energy Liquid Explosive is a powerful and versatile liquid explosive which eliminates the logistical difficulties usually encountered in shipping and storing high explosives. HELIX™ is sold as two components, the liquid and the activator, each of which can remain in long term storage. When mixed, HELIX™ is a detonator sensitive, high explosive with high gas volume, high bulk energy and consistent detonating velocity.
- Velocity: 6,400 m/s (21,000 f/s)
- Density: 1.3g/cc
- High bulk energy
- Thermally stable to 167°F (75°C)
- Low sensitivity to friction, impact and electrostatic discharge (ESD)
HELIX™ High Energy Liquid Explosive is supplied as a two component system. The flammable liquid and flammable solid are combined and mixed to form the high explosive formulation ready for use. HELIX™ is sensitive to No. 8 strength detonators at ambient conditions as well as 50 g/ft (10 g/m) detonating cord. HELIX™ can also be supplied in breaching frames where only the flammable liquid needs to be added.
HELIX™ is suitable for use and can be utilized in multiple end items such as shaped charges, bulk charges, disrupters and common demolition configurations.
