Abstract:

The compatibility of several ethylene-propylene elastomers with hydrazine has been investigated. The gas evolution rate resulting from the catalytic decomposition of hydrazine by elastomers has been determined under ambient conditions. By varying the formulation of one ethylene-propylene rubber EPR 132, we determined that the carbon black filler material in the elastomer is responsible for promoting the decomposition of the fuel.
