What is TATP and why is it in the headlines? TATP is a highly volatile explosive substance, especially when made using chemicals such as sulfuric acid. Even the slightest amount of applied friction or changes in temperature can cause a major explosion. Terrorists have been using TATP because it is easy to produce and creates a large explosion when detonated. The SEEKERe by DetectaChem is a handheld explosive detector used to detect TATP and other chemical compounds. The SEEKERe is a proven, powerful tool in the hands of security and law enforcement to keep our communities safe.
