Hello all, I would like to buy some Debrix booster pellets as part of a research contract I have been awarded. Their use is not crucial to initiate PE4 with a detonator but using them would help improve consistency of the experimental results and hence interpretation of the data. The test facility I am using does not have these in stock and said to acquire them from the manufacturer would add a £1.5 - 2k to the project budget for just a dozen of them, primarily due to secure shipping costs. Does anyone know a place in the UK which has these in stock and would be able to sell and transport them to another test site in Wales? Are explosives testing companies allowed to sell and transfer explosives between them? I had thought about making it myself (apparently it is just 99% RDX and 1% wax) at the licensed explosive testing facility, and I estimate the total quantity needed to be under 20g, but I may end up introducing more variability in the results than the reverse by non-standard manufacturing processes. The RDX is fairly safe to handle being a secondary explosive and can be readily prepared in a standard laboratory setting (with the appropriate licenses). The alternative is pure loose PETN powder (which the test facility has in stock) but I do not know how much more consistent the initiation point will be with this approach if the powder is not consistently pressed into convenient, geometrically identical pellets of exactly the same mass and explosive:binder ratio.
