Abstract : The patent concerns a castable high explosive composition of the 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) variety containing a cellulosic resin having a thermoplastic nature. A method is discussed for incorporating a thermoplastic resin of the cellulosic variety into a castable high explosive composition containing TNT by initially coating such cellulosic resin on the surface of a finely divided solid explosive and then uniformly dispersing the latter throughout the castable composition.
