Abstract:

The report describes the development and evaluation of an inert simulant for the thermally stable, heat-resistant plastic-bonded explosive HNSTeflon. The simulant is made by dry blending vinylidene fluoride, melamine and Teflon which when compared has a pressed density and thermal properties corresponding closely to the explosive. In addition, the machinability and handling characteristics of the simulant are similar to the explosive. Author
