Abstract:

A study is made of the performance characteristics of lead dioxide specimens from five U. S. manufacturers. Reactivity data is obtained using temperature-time curves, pressure-time curves, and burning rate of delay bodies. The relationship of chemical and physical properties of lead dioxide to its performance in the various tests, and the relationship of the various performance tests to each other, are considered.
