Magic Dismantling or Gram Demolition (術式解体) is a magic that demolishes the record of Magic (Gram).
Gram Demolition is a heavyweight Counter Magic that uses compressed Psion particles to forcibly blow away all the accompanying Activation Sequence and Magic Sequences — anything that has traces of Psions recorded on it. The compressed Psions themselves travel through the physical realm as opposed to the Information Dimension.
Though it is called magic, it is simply a cannonball of Psions that has neither structure nor a Magic Ritual to modify an event, so it is not affected by Zone Interference (another form of counter magic). The pressure of the cannonball also repels the effects of Cast Jamming. It has no physical effects and cannot be hindered by any obstacle.
Besides its short effective range, which is a side effect of the Psions traveling through physical space, Gram Demolition has no true weaknesses. However, because Gram Demolition is a compressed ball of Psions within the physical realm, an excessive Psion Count is needed to activate it and very few people can use it. Mayumi, a powerful magician in her own right, has said her Psion count is not enough to use Gram Demolition.

Contact-Type Gram Demolition (接触型術式解体) is an alternate form of Gram Demolition used by Tomitsuka Hagane in his mock battles against Takuma and Tatsuya. Unlike the traditional version that Tatsuya uses, which functions like a cannonball, Contact-type Gram Demolition works like an armor composed of formless Psions, demolishing any magic that comes in contact with the user's body. However, Contact-Type Gram Demolition cannot protect the user from the purely physical effects of an enemy's attacks and thus it is not a true "armor".
This armor of Psions has no structure like Cast Jamming or Magic Sequences, it is immune to Tatsuya's standard Gram Dispersion. as long as it remains formless. Once it assumes any sort of structure, which is necessary when the user attempts to cast magic, it is susceptible to Gram Dispersion. Since the formless cloud of Psions obscures the user, Contact-Type Gram Demolition helps protect the wielder's Eidos. So long as it obscures the wielder's information, Contact-Type Gram Demolition prevents Tatsuya from being able to lock onto the user's molecular structure, protecting the user from Tatsuya's Mist Dispersion.
Thanks to his high psion reserves and his control over it, by condensing high density psion around his body, Tatsuya can wield a "temporary" Contact-Type Gram Demolition.
