High Performance Propellants, Munitions and Demilitarisation Services
EXPAL is highlighting its latest developments for the defence and security sector at AUSA 2019 in Washington this week.
With over 100 years’ experience providing high-technology and tailored components for energetic materials, high-performance propellants and electronic fuzes, the company continues to leverage this expertise to the benefit of an international customer base.
From its Propulsion Systems Technology Centre, a cutting-edge facility, EXPAL designs and produces advanced propulsion systems for rockets, missiles and a wide portfolio of munitions, such as 2.75in (70mm) rocket motors, artillery charges and single- and multi-base propellants. The company also offers semi-processed products, including carpet roll, premix, wet and dry pastes and raw materials such as nitrocellulose, compliant with international standards and regulations.
EXPAL will also highlight its demilitarisation solutions for the US market, both DoD and industry. The company is one of the main suppliers in the country, thanks to its long-established know-how and processes placing emphasis on recovering, recycling and re-using up to 90% of the components removed. EXPAL USA has state-of-the-art facilities in Texarkana and an R&D center at Camp Minden.
As a global expert in ammunition and explosives, EXPAL also provides initiation systems, demolition charges and EOD equipment for combat engineers and special operation forces for NATO and allied countries. These solutions, currently in service with over 40 armed forces, are based on achieving maximum efficiency while protecting the user.
