EURENCO announced it has commissioned in May 2016 a new plant for the production of NTO insensitive explosives as part of its investment strategy in Sorgues, France.
The new production line provides customers with a very modern, efficient and safe industrial process. Its large annual capacity will also ensure security of supply for growing needs of current customers in Europe and answer new customer requests outside Europe.
NTO insensitive explosives are mainly used by EURENCO’s customers in melt-cast compositions for insensitive munitions, very insensitive cast-PBX formulations as well as moulding powders for pressed-PBX formulations.
Applications include mortar and artillery ammunition as well as munitions used from naval platforms.
