Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to develop flexible polymers, which, when combined with appropriate fillers, will be suitable for use as thermal insulation in solid-propellant rocket motors. During the report period, efforts were concentrated on 1 the internal flexibilization of epoxy, melamine, and furan resins, 2 the investigation of other fillers besides asbestos fibers, 3 mechanical testing of aged, externally plasticized epoxy resins, 4 oxyacetylene torch testing of filled epoxy resins, and 5 static motor testing of filled flexible phenolic resins.
