Abstract : Tests were made on Type T2, normally closed, explosive switch to improve switch opening characteristics. This type of switch is fired by the explosive action of a special electric primer. Brisance of the primer and the electrical resistance of the primer residue were both increased. Quantity of primer residue was decreased. Sensitivity and functioning time of the primer remain satisfactory.
