Resource used for producing heavy explosive weapons.
In-game description

Heavy Explosive Materials (aka "hemats") are a resource used to craft the heaviest explosives. This includes Alligator Charges, 150mm shells, 250mm shells, and 300mm shells. Every other explosive weapons and ammunitions is produced using Explosive Materials instead.

Refining[]

Heavy Explosive Materials are created in a Refinery by processing Sulfur at a 20:1 ratio. The refining speed is much slower than for Basic Materials, it takes 1 minutes to refine 20 sulfur into 1 heavy explosive materials. Once refined the hemats can be retrieved as is with left click or as crates using the right click context menu. A crate of heavy explosive materials holds 20 units.

Storage[]

Up to 300 heavy explosive materials crates can be stored in each stockpile at a Storage Depot or Seaport. Only materials crates retrieved directly from the refinery queue can be privately stored in a reserve stockpile.

Crating Materials[]

Like other Materials, a stack of heavy explosive materials (20 for hemats) can be transformed into crates of materials, and vice versa, via the right click context menu but only in the inventory of a Storage Depot, Seaport, or Shipping Container. Uncrating a crate of materials will make those materials unable to be stored in a reserve stockpile as retransforming them will make a "public" crate.

Due to the small amount of hemat per crate, it is often more efficient to transport hemats uncrated where they can form stacks of 100 per slot, as long as you want to spend them on arrival and not store them in a private stockpile. A truck can carry 1500 hemats when a shipping container can only carry 1200 (20x60).

Heavy explosive materials cannot be spent while in crate form.

The weight of heavy explosive materials cannot be reduced by wearing any special uniform.

Explosive Production[]

Heavy Explosive materials are the main material to craft only the heaviest of ordnances and shells in the game. They are: Alligator Charges, 150mm shells, 250mm shells, and 300mm shells. Every other explosive weapons and ammunitions is produced using Explosive Materials instead.

Strategy[]

Due to its slow refining speed, it is important to always think ahead and refine sulfur into hemats before you need them as you simply cannot wait hours in front of the refinery for hemats to finish refining.

If you want to privately store crates of heavy explosive materials for later, always remember to retrieve the materials as crates using the right click context menu.

Heavy explosive materials have no use on the front, never transport them there.
