Spanish term or phrase: explosivo flegmatizado
Hi again,
Same explosive factory translation! This sentence goes:
El hexogeno tambien se utiliza para la fabricacion de explosivo flegmatizado, consistente en el recubrimiento de oxidante, perclorato amonico, con aluminio como reductor, asi como un ligante polimerico y una serie de aditivos. La geometria del cohete tambien es variable.

Many thanks in advance for your help.

phlegmatized explosive (substance)


Explanation:
1. Wether to use the word ´substance´or not,depends strongly on the context.

To shed some light on the previous translation I happen to know from personal experience that there are two different kinds of substances being added to the explosive substances to alter their characteristics: wetters (water,..)and phlegmatizers (wax, paraffine, ..)

Hexogen, which is a highly explosive substance, is desentisized by adding wax to it.

alternative term widely used in Spain: hexogeno con cera (parafina). (Imagine an the stress mark above the first ´o´).

Cheers.

Davorka has given you the answer for another term you requested!!!


Explanation:
I think Davorka has answered your question about *hexoceras*! These must be an elided form of the "alternative term widely used in Spain: hexogeno con cera (parafina)" for "phlegmatized explosives*! Too bad Davorka hadn't looked at that question, too. I knew it had to be a shortened form of *something*--and I certainly could see the *-cera* part of the term, but just couldn't track down anything clear in English.

And... how the heck do we end up translating the things we do? Explosives are far from anything I want to be involved in, in the "real world" outside of translation! :-))
