COOPERATIVE PATENT CLASSIFICATION
C06B
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}) [2013-01]
NOTES

  • This subclass covers:
    • compositions which are:
      • 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;
      • thermic: compositions included have
        • 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
        • 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;
      • fuels for rocket engines and intended for reaction with an oxidant, excluding air, in order to provide thrust for motive power purposes;
      • 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
