Pagination or Media Count:
The interactions of nitroglycerine in double-base propellants with the inhibition materials cellulose acetate and ethyl cellulose are described. The distribution of nitroglycerine within the inhibitor and the effects of time, temperature, nitrocellulose content of the propellant, barrier layers and fillers on rates of absorption are covered. Reference is made to methods of bonding ethyl cellulose to propellant. The investigations are extended to a range of polymers which are possible inhibitors, and also to a number of plasticizers likely to be present.
