Tritonal is a mixture of eighty percent TNT and twenty percent aluminiumpowder, used in several types of ordnance such as air-dropped bombs. The aluminium improves the total heat output and hence impulse of the TNT - the length of time throughout which the blast wave is positive. Tritonal is approximately eighteen percent more powerful than TNT alone.
