Our gunpowder has a high stabilized nitrocellulose content that is gelled before being extruded and is given the proper porosity through a specific process. Finally, it is dried and subjected to a surface treatment until it achieves the fluidity required for its dosing.
At MAXAM we are proud to say that ours are the best smokeless propellants in the market: almost 150 years of experience attest to this. The quality of our powders is mainly due to the rigorous control of the characteristics to which it is subjected in order to achieve the expected speed and pressure.
CSB, PSB+ and SSB+
Single base powder transformed into circular or square particles with medium-low gravimetric density. The CSB stands out due to its cleanliness and absence of waste and, together with the PSB, stands out with its great regularity and precision. On the other hand, the SSB + has been designed specifically for steel cartridges - perfect for hunting waterfowl.
