Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC)
Dynamic Materials Corporation is the worlds leading provider of explosion-welded clad metal plates. Its Detaclad products are used in a variety of industries, including petrochemicals, refining, hydrometallurgy, aluminum smelting and shipbuilding.
The Boulder, Colorado, USA based company began business in 1965 as an explosion forming specialist, producing complex three-dimensional parts for aerospace equipment manufacturers. DMC became a publicly traded company in 1976 under the ticker symbol BOOM and shortly thereafter licensed technology from E.I. DuPont de Nemours and Company (DuPont) to explosively bond, or clad, two or more dissimilar metal plates together. The explosion-bonded clad metal business remains DMCs core business today. The acquisitions of DuPonts Detaclad Division in 1996, Nobelclad Europe in 2001, and DynaEnergetics in 2007 has strengthened the Company’s worldwide position in explosion cladding.
Explosive forming of metals
Explosive forming offers a solution for the forming of saddle-shaped panels.
This is because this technology has no restrictions with regard to the format or the thickness of the product.
By means of explosion forming, complex and double-curved shapes can be produced in a relatively easy way.
Almost all types of metals, such as aluminium, steel and stainless steel. But also nickel and titanium can be shaped by means of explosion forming.
In comparison with other metal distortion technologies, explosion forming has a number of advantages. For example large objects can be produced in one go up to ten metres in length, and thick plates, up to even six cm thick stainless steel, can also be transformed.
In addition to this, less after treatments are necessary, because of which the metal suffers less stress.
It is also possible to transform metal plates that have been lacquered in advance.
Explosion forming is pre-eminently suitable for the creation of prototypes or small ranges, but large ranges can also easily be produced by distorting several plates at the same time.
Exploform is a joint-venture of Van Campen Aluminum Productie BV and TNO (Dutch organization for Applied Scientific Research)
Bitrub International Ltd.
The leading Russian national industrial producer of Clad Metals by Explosive Welding
Dimensions of clad plates: 10–200 mm thick, up to 3200 mm wide, and up to 8000 mm long. Base materials are: carbon steels, low-alloy steels, high-alloy steels, non-ferrous metals, and alloys shaped as plates, slabs, forged pieces, etc.
Cladding layer is 1–15 mm thick
Cladding materials are: stainless steel, high-alloy corrosion-resistant steels, titanium and its alloys, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum and its alloys, nickel, iron-nickel alloys, tool steels, etc.
Products quality meets the requirements of the GOST 10885-85 (Soviet Standards Code), Other National Standards or agreed specifications

The Symposium is intended to be a representative forum of scientists, engineers, and production managers active in the field
of rapid processes and phenomena accompanying shock- and detonation-assisted synthesis, shock-assisted modification of materials,
explosive strengthening and welding of metals, and explosion-mediated consolidation of powders for effective industrial-scale implementation
of the above processes.
Explosive welding of metals and consolidation of powders
Synthesis of new materials in shock and detonations waves
Explosive and shock processing of materials
Industrial implementation of materials production/processing by explosion

The Symposia have a long history: in the 70–80s, they were held in former Czechoslovakia on a regular basis.
The Symposia were popular and greatly contributed to the science and technology of materials processing by explosion.
After a long time-out, the tradition was resumed by holding the VIII Symposium (EPNM-2006) in Moscow, September 11–14, 2006.
The Symposium in Moscow demonstrated the current importance and significance of such forums. The Symposium was attended
by more than 100 experts from 12 countries, including representatives of leading manufacturers using explosive technologies
that indicate the continuing interest to such forums.
The participants expressed their satisfaction with renewal of such meetings and supported the idea to held similar forums
within a period of two years.
It was also decided to impart the International Advisory Committee virtually affiliated at ISMAN the status of a continuing
body. All current information will be posted on the website of ISMAN:
International Advisory Committee
is assumed to perform the following duties:
- to appoint the time and place for the oncoming symposia
- to file a program of next symposia, subjects of sections, and format of presentations
- to assist to Local Organizing Committee in search for sponsors and sources of financial support among domestic and international
institutions and organizations
The Local Organizing Committee will be situated in a host country (for EPNM-2008 the Netherlands). In order to optimize the organizing activities, the position of Chairman of IAC and LOC will be simultaneously occupied (under rotation rule) by a well recognizable scientist from a host country.
Accordingly, the Chairman of IAC/LOC for EPNM-2008 will be
Dr. Erik Carton

Among numerous combustion processes, most useful are those which reduce atmospheric pollutions. The free radicals
(e.g., OH) obtained in the course of combustion reactions can catch up the pollutant molecules ...etc.
