As an explosive, CDP offers a lot of power. Tests are underway to fully explore and characterize CDP explosive formulations and ETI plans to offer on-site bulk or small charge preparation systems for mining and quarry work.
Properties of CDP Explosives:
a) Energy Output: 4 kJ/g to 8 kJ/g depending on the formulation
b) Critical diameter: Less than 26 mm (less that 1″)
c) Velocity of Detonation: This is currently being studied
