Eurosatory 2018

The future is green [ES18D5]

15 June 2018

EURENCO (Hall 6, Stand F81) is very much looking to the future and is working on new technologies for the next decade.

The company is focusing on three areas: customised 3D printing using fused filament fabrication and 3D solvent cast based on its own Nitrofilm technology, which will allow rapid prototyping for energetic materials; new explosive solutions and high-performance energetics that will lead to the development of future ammunition and bombs, which will be lighter and stronger; and green propellant technologies.

Its research department has identified six ‘green’ stabilisers, from curcumin to alpha-ionone (derived from violets), which are more environmentally friendly and will reduce exposure to harmful substances for workers and users. They also represent better performance, as well as improved chemical and ballistic stabilities.
