Abstract : An energetic composition useful in transferring detonation through thin channels in a logic pattern comprises a binder comprising vinyl-terminated polybutadiene-acrylonitrile copolymer crosslinked with a monofunctional unsaturated ester monomer in an amount from about 50 to about 90 percent of the binder weight and a plasticizer selected from the group consisting of dioctyl phthalate, maleate, and adipate, isodecyl pelargonate, dibutyl phthalate and maleate in an amount from about 10 to 50 percent of the binder weight, and pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN) in amount from about 76 to 84 percent of the total composition weight. The composition is cured with ionizing radiation in a dose from about 0.6 x million to 1.2 million rads. (Patents)
