C-4, properly known as composition 4, is a plastic explosive developed in the 1960s as an improvement to a pre-existing plastic explosive called Nobel 808. C-4 is a combination of explosive, a plastic binding agent, a plasticizer, and a marking chemical added to ease detection.

Like all plastic explosives, C-4 is extremely stable. Called an insensitive explosive, C-4 is very difficult to trigger by accident. Impact and fire are separately not enough to detonate C-4, but the combination of the two can create the necessary circumstances for detonation, however, fire will cause C-4 to burn with very high heat, even underwater, and was often used by US troops in Vietnam to cook food. C-4 is 1.34 times more explosive than TNT.
