Dynamic Materials Corporation (DMC)

Dynamic Materials Corporation is the world’s 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 DMC’s core business today. The acquisitions of DuPont’s Detaclad Division in 1996, Nobelclad Europe in 2001, and DynaEnergetics in 2007 has strengthened the Company’s worldwide position in explosion cladding.

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.

Symposium Sections

  • 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 History

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:

The IX Symposium (EPNM-2008) has been successfully organized in Lisse, the Netherlands, May 5–9, 2008

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

Suggested and tested were some mix explosives—powder mixtures of a brisant high explosive (HE = RDX, PETN) and an inert diluent (baking soda)—for use in explosive welding. RDX and PETN were selected in view of their high throwing ability and low critical diameter. Since the decomposition of baking soda yields a huge amount of gaseous products, its presence ensures (even at a low HE percentage) a throwing speed that is sufficient for realization of explosive welding, at a reduced brisant action of charge.
Mix chargers containing 30–70 wt % HE (the rest baking soda) have been tested experimentally and optimized. The sensitivity of optimal compositions to mechanical and thermal influences was found to be lower than that of pure HE. Optimal mix explosives exhibited the detonation velocity 2.0 ≤ D ≤ 2.3 km/s (depending on the thickness of bulk layer) at a charge density of ρ ≈ 1 g/cm3 and the critical diameter of detonation 5 ≤ d ≤ 10 mm. The above explosives afford to markedly diminish deformations within the oblique impact zone and thus to carry out explosive welding of hollow items and thin metallic foils.
