RDX is often used in mixtures with other explosives and plasticizers or phlegmatizer (desensitizers); it is the explosive agent in C-4 plastic explosives. It is stable in storage and is considered one of the most energetic of the military high explosives, with a relative effectiveness factor of 1.60.
