EXPLOSIVES OR THERMIC COMPOSITIONS (blasting F42D); MANUFACTURE THEREOF; USE OF SINGLE SUBSTANCES AS EXPLOSIVES (compounds in general C01, C07 or C08;
{
demolition agents based on cementitious or like materials C04B 41/0009
}
)
NOTE
-
This subclass covers:
- compositions wich are:
a) explosive: compositions included are those containing both a fuel and sufficient
oxidiser so that, upon initiation, they are capable of undergoing a chemical
change of a relatively high rate of speed, resulting in the production of usable
force for blasting, firearms, propelling missiles, or the like;
b) thermic: compositions included have (i) a consumable fuel component which consists
of any element which is a metal, B, Si, Se or Te, or mixtures, intercompounds, or
hydrides thereof; and (ii) in combination an oxidant component which is either a
metal oxide or a salt (organic or inorganic) capable of yielding a metal oxide on
decomposition;
c) fuels for rocket engines and intended for reaction with an oxidant, excluding air,
in order to provide thrust for motive power purposes;
d) for use in affecting the explosion environment, e.g. for neutralising the
poisonous gases of explosives, for cooling the explosion gases, or the like;
- methods or apparatus for preparing or treating such compositions not otherwise
provided for;
- methods of using single substances as explosives.

In this subclass, the following term is used with the meaning indicated:
- "nitrated" covers compounds having a nitro group or a nitrate ester group.

Methods or apparatus for preparing or treating such compositions are classified according to the particular components of the compositions.

In this subclass, the words "based on", with reference to explosive compositions, refer to the explosive ingredient present in the largest proportion by weight

In the absence of an indication to the contrary a composition is classified in the last place that provides for an ingredient

Apparatus or methods for working-up explosives, e.g. forming, cutting, drying

In the absence of an indication to the contrary a process is classified in the last appropriate place, e.g. granulation by extrusion and chopping C06B 21/0075)]
