Abstract : Functional data were recorded on 2,166 primers of the 3,000 tested. The primers were over five years old. The manufacturer's data, date of manufacture, lot number, and other back-up information were not available. The primers functioned satisfactorily in all temperature groups. A definite trend of deterioration was noted as the conditioning temperatures were increased. The remaining 834 primers from the investigation were subjected to electrical voltage changes, rapid temperaturing cycles, and prolonged temperature conditioning. The purpose was to rejuvinate the primers. The results, in general, did not develop a trend or produce unusual conditions. The results were within specification limits. The shelf and service lives were verified. The investigation proved deterioration was sufficient to limit the shelf and service life to a maximum five years. (Author)
