EMPI is an employee owned company founded for the purpose of developing and commercializing advanced energetic formulations and products enabled by recent advances in metal-based energetic materials. Our novel energetic materials are designed to provide significant performance and functionality gains for applications where tunable, high-mass and high-energy density energetic materials with desirable IM and environmental characteristics are required. EMPI has developed a new class of explosive materials, which have higher energy densities and use the power of nanoenergetics to tailor explosive energy release in space and time in ways that conventional, organic explosives cannot. EMPI has also developed a new class of tunable reactive materials (RM) based on nanometer and micrometer length-scale metals and special metal and organic oxidizers that are more versatile than conventional reactive materials. The Green Energetics market is driven by the need for environmentally friendly and safer solutions to replace lead and perchlorate based compounds for commercial and defense applications. Green solutions are highly sought for pyrotechnics and primary explosives as well as electric igniters and primers replacing existing materials which pose severe environmental hazards beginning with the manufacturing process through end use applications.
