The results of long-term, ambient-temperature materials compatibility and storability studies with chlorine pentafluoride ClF5 are reported. Duplicate sets of 34 different materials of construction, exposed to the liquid and vapor phases of ClF5 for a period of 19 months, exhibited corrosion rates similar to those demonstrated previously in 30-day materials compatibility studies under both ambient-temperature and 160 F conditions. Periodic analyses of ClF5 samples stored at ambient temperatures in 321 stainless stell, 6061 aluminum, Monel 400, and oxygen-free copper for a period of 13 months indicated an absence of propellant decompositon andor reaction. Other work pertinent to the scope of the program, including the preparation of a Chlorine Pentafluoride Engineering Properties Handbook, is described. Author
