Spanish term or phrase: Fabricacion de pentrita
Hi Proz,
The sentence goes:
La pentrita se fabrica mediante un proceso de esterificacion, en el cual reaccionan monopentaeritritol, acido nitrico (98%) y otros aditivos.
Pentrita comes up as penthrite or pentrite or nitropenta - which to use?
Any help appreciated.
