This video by DemolitionRanch features footage of the host and his friends blowing up an old yellow taxi cab. They use 50 pounds of binary X explosives to blow up the vehicle in a range in Las Vegas. They shoot the explosives using a Barrett M107A1.
A binary explosive is a type of explosive that is made from two components. Neither of the components is an explosive itself, that is why the two must be mixed together in order to become an explosive.
The most common examples of binary explosives include Tannerite (which is ammonium nitrate mixed with aluminium), Kinestik (which is ammonium nitrate mixed with nitro methane), Oxyliquit (which is liquid oxygen and combustible powder) and FIXOR (which is combination of nitroethane and a physical sensitizer).
Binary explosives are often utilized in commercial applications, because these materials offer greater handling safety.
