C-4, or composition 4

1/4 oz 100 proof Rumple Minze® peppermint liqueur
1/4 oz DeKuyper® Hot Damn 100 cinnamon schnapps
1/4 oz Jagermeister® herbal liqueur
1/4 oz Midori® melon liqueur

12 oz. spackling putty or 20 packs of Silly Putty

1 container Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)

Candle Wax

12 Oz. Isopropol (rubbing) alcohol

A heat source (hot plate, stove, etc.)

A large Pyrex, or enameled steel container  

Flour or Corn Starch

24 Oz. cooking oil (Canola Oil works best)

1 package wire pipe cleaners

2 packages (2.8 Oz) clear gelatin

Place four cups of tap water in your Pyrex container, and begin heating it until it boils. Add the gelatin, and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat, and allow it to cool completely, then add 4 Oz. of cooking oil, and stir. You should notice a thin layer of solids beginning to form near the top. Scrape off the solids, and place them in a small container. Place them in the freezer.

Next, light your candle, allowing the melted wax to accumulate. In your bowl, mix the petroleum jelly, cooking oil, putty, and corn starch until well blended.  

Now remove the chilled mixture from the freezer. BE CAREFUL. The mixture is highly unstable at this point. Add it to the compound in the bowl - the blend should have the consistency of ice cream. Stir in the mixture VERY CAREFULLY. After a few mins it will be done, then all you do is take a bit of it (the more you use the bigger the explosion) and roll it in a circle or make in a square or something, then stick a pipe cleaner in, when you light it you can throw it or light it on the floor but I would throw it, even though the fuse might fall out or go out it is safer.

why do you want to make C4. there are much better high explosives out there. look up trinitroiodide or potassium chloride. those ones are the cool ones

C-4, or composition 4, is one variety of plastic explosive. The basic idea of plastic explosives, also called plastic bonded explosives (PBX), is to combine explosive chemicals with a plastic binder material. The binder has two important jobs:
• It coats the explosive material, so it's less sensitive to shock and heat. This makes it relatively safe to handle the explosive.
• It makes the explosive material highly malleable. You can mold it into different shapes to change the direction of the explosion.
C-4 Ingredients
• RDX - 91 percent
• Di(2-ethylhexyl) sebacate - 5.3 percent
• Polyisobutylene - 2.1 percent
• Motor oil - 1.6 percent
The explosive material in C-4 is cyclotrimethylene-trinitramine (C3H6N6O6), commonly called RDX (for "research development explosive"). The additive material is made up of polyisobutylene, the binder, and di(2-ethylhexyl) sebacate, the plasticizer (the element that makes the material malleable). It also contains a small amount of motor oil and some 2, 3-dimethyl-2, 3-dinitrobutane (DMDNB), which functions as a chemical marker for security forces.
To make C-4 blocks, explosives manufacturers take RDX in powder form and mix it with water to form a slurry. They then add the binder material, dissolved in a solvent, and mix the materials with an agitator. They remove the solvent through distillation, and remove the water through drying and filtering. The result is a relatively stable, solid explosive with a consistency similar to modelling clay.
Just as with other explosives, you need to apply some energy to C-4 to kick off the chemical reaction. Because of the stabilizer elements, it takes a considerable shock to set off this reaction; lighting the C-4 with a match will just make it burn slowly, like a piece of wood (in Vietnam, soldiers actually burned C-4 as an improvised cooking fire). Even shooting the explosive with a rifle won't trigger the reaction. Only a detonator, or blasting cap will do the job properly.

A detonator is just a smaller explosive that's relatively easy to set off. An electrical detonator, for example, uses a brief charge to set off a small amount of explosive material. When somebody triggers the detonator (by transmitting the charge through detonator cord to a blasting cap, for example), the explosion applies a powerful shock that triggers the C-4 explosive material.
When the chemical reaction begins, the C-4 decomposes to release a variety of gases (notably, nitrogen and carbon oxides). The gases initially expand at about 26,400 feet per second (8,050 meters per second), applying a huge amount of force to everything in the surrounding area. At this expansion rate, it is totally impossible to outrun the explosion like they do in dozens of action movies. To the observer, the explosion is nearly instantaneous -- one second, everything's normal, and the next it's totally destroyed.
The explosion actually has two phases. The initial expansion inflicts most of the damage. It also creates a very low-pressure area around the explosion's origin -- the gases are moving outward so rapidly that they suck most of the gas out from the "middle" of the explosion. After the outward blast, gases rush back in to the partial vacuum, creating a second, less-destructive inward energy wave.
A small amount of C-4 packs a pretty big punch. Less than a pound of C-4 could potentially kill several people, and several military issue M112 blocks of C-4, weighing about 1.25 pounds (half a kilogram) each, could potentially demolish a truck. Demolition experts typically use a good amount of C-4 in order to do a job properly. To take out one 8-inch (20.3-centimeter) square steel beam, for example, they would probably use 8 to 10 pounds (3.6 to 4.5 kilograms) of C-4.
People apply C-4's explosive power toward all kinds of destruction.

10/7/2007 1:46:24
C4 can be made with petroleum jelly, but neveryoumind has copied an article from and placed it here.  The resulting form is to look like a snow man.  Xzavier has it right.  Bad thing is the only thing you can easily purchase (and without getting snagged by the feds) is the electrical blasting caps.  Take it from an expert, ANYTHING TO DO WITH YOU PLACING ANYTHING OVER AN OPEN FLAME TO PRODUCE AN EXPLOSIVE IS STUPID AND UNTRUE.  Thus if you do so, YOU ARE STUPID!!!  You can throw C4 into a fire, step on it, throw it, and abuse it in any way you can think of, but when you get it near a blasting cap, don't be near it.  I can say one thing about the people on here with regards to their least Molotov is spelled right.  Let's see if you guys know anything about Mr. Molotov (the person, not the cocktail).

uh.... isnt actual C4 detonated by an electrical shock, you shouldnt be able to ignite it with flame.

[Posted from : UNITED STATES]

10/29/2007 8:40:09
actually, C4 is a plastic explosive and as such needs a sonic shockwave to detonate it, not an electrical 'shock'. but yes, it defintiely wont do anything if you try and burn it. you could chuck it in a camp fire and nothing much will happen...also, you wont likely be making c4 in a kitchen at home. these are the two main ingredients you need:

1: money

2: contact with some shady underworld type- maybe an outlaw biker

to make c4 first u need to make rdx, so here goes..

R.D.X., also called cyclonite, or composition C-4 (when mixed with
plasticisers) is one of the most valuable of all military explosives.  This is
because it has more than 150% of the power of T.N.T., and is much easier to
detonate.  It should not be used alone, since it can be set off by a not-too
severe shock.  It is less sensitive than mercury fulminate, or nitroglycerine,
but it is still too sensitive to be used alone.

                        / \             RDX MOLECULE
                       /   \
                      H C   H C
                     / 2     2
                    /        |
                  O N        N--NO
                   2 \      /     2
                      \    /
                       \  /

R.D.X. can be made by the surprisingly simple method outlined hereafter.  It
is much easier to make in the home than all other high explosives, with the
possible exception of ammonium nitrate.

    MATERIALS                    EQUIPMENT
    hexamine                     500 ml beaker
    methenamine                  glass stirring rod
    fuel tablets (50 g)
                                 funnel and filter paper
    nitric acid (550 ml)         ice bath container  (plastic bucket)

    distilled water              centigrade thermometer

    table salt                   blue litmus paper

    ice                          ammonium nitrate

1) Place the beaker in the ice bath, (see section 3.13, steps 3-4) and carefully
  pour 550 ml of concentrated nitric acid into the beaker.

2) When the acid has cooled to below 20 degrees centigrade, add small amounts
  of the crushed fuel tablets to the beaker.  The temperature will rise, and
  it must be kept below 30 degrees centigrade, or dire consequences could
  result. Stir the mixture.

3) Drop the temperature below zero degrees centigrade, either by adding more
  ice and salt to the old ice bath, or by creating a new ice bath.  Or,
  ammonium nitrate could be added to the old ice bath, since it becomes cold
  when it is put in water. Continue stirring the mixture, keeping the
  temperature below zero degrees centigrade for at least twenty minutes

4) Pour the mixture into a litre of crushed ice.  Shake and stir the mixture,
  and allow it to melt.  Once it has melted, filter out the crystals, and
  dispose of the corrosive liquid.

5) Place the crystals into one half a litre of boiling distilled water. Filter
  the crystals, and test them with the blue litmus paper.  Repeat steps 4 and
  5 until the litmus paper remains blue.  This will make the crystals more
  stable and safe.

6) Store the crystals wet until ready for use. Allow them to dry completely
   using them. R.D.X. is not stable enough to use alone as an explosive.

7) Composition C-1 can be made by mixing 88.3% R.D.X. (by weight) with 11.1%
  mineral oil, and 0.6% lecithin. Kneed these material together in a plastic
  bag. This is one way to desensitize the explosive.

8) H.M.X. is a mixture of T.N.T. and R.D.X.; the ratio is 50/50, by weight.  
 it is not as sensitive, and is almost as powerful as straight R.D.X.

9) By adding ammonium nitrate to the crystals of R.D.X. after step 5, it
  should be possible to desensitize the R.D.X. and increase its power, since
  ammonium nitrate is very insensitive and powerful. Soduim or potassium
  nitrate could also be added; a small quantity is sufficient to stabilize
  the R.D.X.

10) R.D.X. detonates at a rate of 8550 meters/second when it is compressed to a  
  density of 1.55 g/cubic cm.

next to plasticize your rdx to create c4.

use these rations
RDX - 92.6 percent
Di(2-ethylhexyl) sebacate - 5.3 percent
Polyisobutylene - 2.1 percent

but i am currently unshure on the process of how to plasticize it safely, i will update thiss as soon as posible

HAHA  goddamn pick up a *!$#ing textbook you slackers, my freshman level college texts for chem, and physics both have info on high explosives, including C-4   by the way if you want to blow shit up as many have stated, look up ANFO, that is some fun!    However if you really want to blow stuff up with out to much legal trouble, look for black powder and a small pvc or iron pipe, thinner is better, try the same width as length, light a long fuse, then run for cover, better yet be behind cover to begin with.

blastin caps.

1. get a used .22250 and a used .22 rifle round
2. drill a small hole [ 4 the fuse ] in the end of the 22 round
3. pack AP, HMTD, or black powder[not as efective] into the 22250 catridge
4. put super glue on the 22 catridge and interlock it into the end of the other one.
5. insert fuse.

You can make a SAFE blasting cap like this.

small thin metal pipe (or PVC, it's lighter)
Estes rocket primer/detonater thing
caulking (or kitty litter crushed added with water. Thats what they use in firecrackers)
black powder (or smokeless)
grill lighter or 9volt or the detonator that come with Estes rockets
wire cutters
hammer or vice
paperclips (optional)
electrical alligator clips (optional)

                          TO MAKE

Take pipe and cut to desired width and smash end with hammer or vice (this will be the base). Put a bit of caulking or kitty litter mix in the base. Put paper on top of caulking or kitty mix and press(this separates the powder from caulking). Put desired measurement of powder in and pack lightly and slowly four fifths of the way. Drop Estes rocket primer in and put more powder in the rest of the way but leaving space for paper, caulking, and a crimped edge. Bend wires of the primer to the side of the pipe and pack some paper in. Then put a bit of calking in and crimp end making sure that you can see the wire of the primer and that they are separated from each other. Finished blasting cap should look like a wrapped piece of bubble gum with two wires extending on one end.                

Put in explosive you wish to detonate. Attach alligator clips or paper clips or just another wire wrapped around it or Estes rocket push button detonator. Attach wire or other connection to grill lighter or attach ONLY ONE wire to 9volt (stand back before doing this!). Pull trigger on grill lighter or touch wire to 9volt or press button on Estes rocket detonator. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

                          Safety Precautions

Wear safety glasses
stand far away as this blasting cap WILL create fragmentations
make sure to pack powder lightly and slowly or you don't have to pack it in at all
use these for only fun and not blowing up the neighbor's belongings or other people or animals (except rats and mice I hate them, sorry ASPCA, haha)

             Be safe. Be courtious

Yea so i just found this because im bored at work...  REAL military grade C-4 WILL burn.  Burns a little less intense than a road flare.

Second i didnt feel like reading through all the kids that read the dumbass cookbook, so im gonna go ahead and post..

Im a COmbat Engineer in the US Marine Corps, and the shit we use Is half detonated by electrical charge.   The electric current lights the blasting cap, which pops, which in turn gets hot enough and enough pressure to blow the C4.  

Same principle with a m67 hand grenade, just it has a metal casing, and its 1lb of Comp B.

Is also kind of the same with a bullet.  Except the electricity is replaced by a hammer and the cap is a closed primer.

Ok, if you morons don't want to die, there are better recipes than this. You can mix powdered iron oxide (rust) and aluminum powder, once lit to get an extremely hot flame. This could be a substitute to makin C4. Does the same damage without the boom. Or why not just get alot of hand sanitizer and light that?

What about... just making a pipe type explosive... except using thermite as an explosive?  The following is... most definitely EXTREMELY dangerous and has it been tested... though... all materials should be fairly stable (much more so than some of the other things being talked about here.  All materials are also extremely easy to acquire.

Required materials:

Piping with end caps (the thicker the better?)
epoxy putty
Thermite made with Copper(II) Oxide (will now be reffered to as CO thermite)
Thermite made with Iron(III) Oxide (will now be referred to as FO thermite)
Model rocket engine
Igniter for model rocket engine
Speaker wire
small cardboard tubing (Toilet paper roll comes to mind... maybe something smaller and at least as long as model rocket engine)
9 volt battery
saran wrap
2 rubber bands

NOTE: Both thermite mixtures should be made with the finest powder you can possibly find.  This will increase reaction time so as to build as much pressure as possible prior to weakening the outside piping.


First, I would assume the thicker your piping the better.  This is mainly to contain as much pressure as possible.  The if it actually was able to contain all the pressure from the reaction the heat from the reaction would melt/weaken it until it exploded anyways so it should not be possible for it to be too thick.  Start by placing one end cap on the pipe.  I am not sure about securing it... but if at least one end was threaded you could weld the first cap in place before anything else is done.

 Take drill and drill a small hole in second end cap.  Thread speaker wire through hole and make sure it goes has about the length of the pipe on the inside so you have plenty of slack.  Secure the wire in place by using the epoxy putty over the hole and around the wire on the inside of the cap.

 Take speaker wire and connect to igniter for model rocket engine.  Secure wires together with a small amount of epoxy and let it set.  Insert igniter into model rocket engine insuring it is making contact with the inside of the proper end of the model rocket engine.  Secure in place with epoxy and cover all bare wires as well as the ignition part of the model rocket engine with epoxy to prevent it from shorting when in thermite mixture.

 Place a saran wrap around one end of cardboard tubing and secure with rubber band.  Put a small amount of CO thermite in cardboard tubing.  Place model rocket engine in cardboard tubing trying your best to keep it centered.  Fill to top with CO thermite while keeping speaker wire to one side.  Place saran wrap around open side of cardboard tubing and secure with rubberband.  It may be a good idea to make a small with the speaker wire ouside the rubberband to redirect it back toward where it exits and secure it again over top to prevent it from pulling open your cardboard tubing.  Instead of saran wrap you could even use epoxy putty or some other material to hold it in place.

 Fill pipe partially with FO thermite mixture.  Place filled cardboard tube in pipe and make your best attempt to keep it centered.  Fill pipe completely with FO thermite.  Fill it until you have a small mound above the rim (in order to leave as little empty space as possible once capped.  Put the second end cap on and then use epoxy to seal and keep in place.

How it works:

 First to start the reaction you ignite the chemicals in the model rocket engine by connecting the 9 volt battery to the speaker wire.  With no place to go the engine should burn through the sides and because of the heat and pressure built up should ignite the CO thermite.  The CO thermite will react extremely fast while building up more pressure and heat.  By this time if it has not the pipe should be close to bursting.  If the pressure is not great enough the FO thermite will ignite and eventually weaken the piping until it is weak enough to burst.  Though... by that time the pipe most likely will have burst the FO should still ignite via copper slag and will still react.  This complete device should create a decent explosion as well burning everything in a decent radius via molten slag.


 You could add Barium Nitrate and sulfer to your thermite mixtures.  This is unstable and much harder to come by compared to the other materials but it will make the thermite burn hotter.  Look up information on Thermate for more details.

why do you kids make shit up like this? have none of you heard of wikipedia? check out what c4 is:

it is mostly made from RDX:

you think you're going to make this in your kitchen?

i'm sure the very next post will be something just as dopey like " you just get a bucket of KFC and mix some diesel into it and then stick a sparkler into one of the drumsticks. guffaw"

Just a suggestion - erm if u wnt to make a boom that could pottentioal blow up whatever u need moving without all this hasstle. One guy earlier mentioned iron oxide and aluminium powder, which is thermite. Try using copper thermite. The matterials of which are easily obtainable off ebay. it requires copper(II) oxide also known as black copper oxide and aluminium powder(or flaked preferably). Mix in the proportion of 4.4 copper oxide to 1 Aluminium powder in a dry mix and place in a sealed pvc tube with visco fuse for the ignitor. Copper thermite is much more violent that iron thermite and explodes rather than burns. enjoy

The Best way to learn how to make explosives it to join the U.S. Army. My MOS is 11H70LAOOVP and in 10 years I learned how to blow up anything  *ANYTHING* ever made by man. Now I make more money traveling all over as a civilian to destroy or create big bangs for shows.

Great shit...

i know for a fact that the first recipe is in fact NOT REAL C4. REAL C4 will burn NOT expload went in contact with flame/heat source... Soldiers use it to cook things mixing camel crap with c4 then lighting it... So in fact The first recipe IS NOT C4... and maybe the others... if you can light it and make it detonate it is not c4... It must be an electrical charge to be detonated to be TRUE C-4 =)

i dont know if anyone cares or anything but you can make a sort of remote detonator using an old disposable camera. Just go on youtube and type in disposeable camera taser or something like that make the tazer andv run a really long wire from the c4 to the camera. charge the camera then touch the leads to the wire.

the easiest, and safest way to ignite homemade plastic explosives is to use model rocket ignitors and the rocket launch system.  The system usually costs about $10 and has 15 feet of cord to keep you safely away from the explosion.

Having been to demolitions school, I will say that you are all retards. With the exception of kev. VERY RARELY straight plastic explosive even used in demolitions anymore. I've handled an M112 detpack twice, and it was to destroy concrete pylons. Most of the time thermate ribbon or detcord (primacord) is used to demolish structures, mainly because you dont have to rig 14 pounds of explosive to a stress point to knock the building down. All you have to do is take a strip of thermate ribbon, or high intensity detcord and wrap it twice at a 45 degree angle around the stress columns. You need at least an 18v charge to spark thermate, and a 12v charge to spark detcord. If you really want to make a shaped charge, its easy. Take some detcord (you can make weak detcord from glue, a shoestring and black powder) and attatch a black powder charge to the end, water proof it. Next take a plastc bag (1 gallon ziploc or metric equivalent)fill it with water, and insert the charge and seal it with duct tape. Voila, you have a weak shaped charge that will be relatively safe and has enough power to blow up a six inch mound of dirt. Have fun kids. If you want to handle explosives, join the military.

SEALpup, you are the retard you *!$#ing dumbshit there is no demolition school only warfare tactics and why would a navy seal have explosives under water...

[Posted from : UNITED STATES]

11/22/2008 12:49:53
the navy underwater demolitions teams were the precursor to the navy SEALs. they blow shit up, like boats, when need be. now, how exactly would you blow up a boat without explosives? as with many military units, they are occasionally called upon to shoot people, too.

as SEALpup pointed out, true demolitions is about finess, not just throwing a ton of explosives at it.

though, the novelty of having and using c-4 does sound cool to someone who never gets the opportunity.

actually, there are a few real answers to this question. one was posted by jonte on the 10/29/2007 and again on the 11/27/2007. harry hi pants wrote on the 4/23/2008 as well. the answer is- unless you own a chemical manufacturing plant, you're not going to be able to make the explosive called C4.if you make something in your kitchen, its not C4, its something else. Gumbo, maybe...

[Posted from : UNITED STATES]

12/27/2008 3:25:00
If you retards make actually make a functional form of C4, Try doing something functional with it.  Google Krakatoa.  You might add the word explosive to it.  It was developed by Alford Technologies.  Perhaps this might give you some entertainment.

thank you some one with since. I'm a weapons specialist for the army national guard. Yes it is fun to make explosives but unless you have the training of how to use it, it aint worth losing your fingers arms or even your life a buddy of mine got luckly and only lost two fingers, but he had to go through a lot of surgey just to be able to use his hands right. To be honest tring to make c-4 at home is dangerous mix it wrong and you can lose your life.

Why make C4?
The advantage of it's is it's portable, and stable.

But, I mean, if you just want to have fun and blow up an old car, there are far easier explosives to make. I'm not going to tell you how to make them, because hell, anyone can use google and I'm sure it's a crime (though proxying my IP anyways)

And, satfy wise, you're probly better of trying you luck with C4 then thermite... being how it can burst things into flames through sheer heat.

You dipshits dont know crap.(learn how to spell)or graduate from High school. except for XAVIER, he has a good recipe. If you want to make something go boom make a Black Powder Grenade.

Ingredients         Equipment
-Black powder       -wooden drumstick or a straw
-Nails              -small Propane can
-Gasoline           -Drill
-wax                -Saw
-tinfoil            -Lighter

1. Empty the propane can and cut off the top.
2. Melt wax on stove and mix with black powder(be carefull!!)
3. Procede to fill the Can half way with the hot wax and Black powder, you need alot of black powder!!
4. Wait until next day and fill the remainder of the can with gasoline and nails.
5. Cut the Drumstick in half and hollow out the inside. Not all the way thru. 6. Drill a tiny hole in the bottom and run the fuse thru the drumstick and melt wax around where the fuse enters from the inside.
7.Fill the drumstick with black powder and tamp it and fill it.
8.Apply tinfoil to top of drumstick and seal with wax  
9. stick drumstick in the Propane can and seal the the entire thing with something.

lite fuse and run for your *!$#ing life. oh and get behind a wall or in a building. Nails can be deadly to living creatures. tryed it with a racoon!!
