A6survey of recent work in the development of castable and plastic-bonded pyrotechnics was made. The survey included the search of available literature and private communications with personnel concerned with these development. Two plastic binder systems were developed to the extent that they are pradtical. One formulation is based on polyvinyl acetate with a solvent extender and one is based on Laminac 4116 polester resin with styrene added to increase fluidity. Results of test, as well as other work to date, indicate that plasticbonded grenades show promise and should be developed more fully. Author
