Blasting and Hardening (Explosives Questions)

Regarding my last question about this subject, someone suggested the use of SEMTEX which happened to fit neatly in with my story. Now, preparing to write the scene, I looked up SEMTEX in Wikipedia and find that there are two types, one used for blasting and one used for hardening. The articles aren't particularly clear about the type of explosion generated and they're naturally short on information about what kind of blast pattern they'd create if used in an act of terrorism.

So that's my question:

In the explosion of a building, which would the terrorists have more likely used (remembering that someone on the inside does, in fact, have access to structural supports). Do they both use demo cord? If not, which one of them does?
