How to use "Explosive" in context?

Explosives are materials that can be spontaneously ignited, causing an explosion. They are commonly used in military and bomb explosions as well as in mining, quarrying, and other industrial applications.

The most common explosives are traditional explosives such as dynamite and TNT. These explosives are composed of a number of chemicals that together form an explosive mixture when the materials are heated. This mixture, when detonated, produces a powerful explosion.

Other explosives, such as C-4, are made from plastic explosives that are surrounded by a metal casing. When the explosives are heated, the metal casing explodes, causing the plastic explosives to detonate.
