Abstract : The beater additive process for manufacturing combustible cartridge cases is superior to the solvent resin, post-impregnation process. However, the current beater additive resins do not produce as good a product as the solvent- resin system. The objective of this program, therefore, was to determine if either or both of two new beater additive resin systems could produce combustible case material equal to that produced by the post-impregnation process. Test coupons of combustible cartridge case material were fabricated using these recommended resins. The procedure was similar to that used in current commercial production runs. The tensile strengths of these coupons were similar to the strengths obtained with coupons prepared with the current commercial resin.
