Abstract:

Much has been published on the subject of the compatibility of plastics with liquid propellants, fuels and oxidizers, but invariable from the standpoint of the propellant or fuel. This report is a rearrangement of the published compatibility data from the standpoint of the plastic material. It is in the form of a tabulation, with primary arrangement by plastic or elastomeric material and thereunder, by fuel. All arrangements are alphabetical, in the form given in the original reference that is, either by generic or trade designation. The compatibility evaluation is in terms of the original document, briefly culled to show behavior of the material at a given temperature and for a given time. Elastomers are included but oils, lubricants and greases are omitted, even though based on polymers. The information has been drawn from 43 references, which are annotated so that the information extracted from them shall have additional significance.
