TDX is a specialized explosive which functions perpendicular to force of gravity. When detonated, the major force is directed in the horizontal plane. As a result, it is extremely efficient in its blast effects.

Examples of its use are felling of trees, the severance of trestle, bridge, or other supports, the creation of directional anti-personnel mines, and situations where a directed explosion is essential.

Commonly TDX is shipped in 2.5kg bricks, a standard for explosive charges.
