Abstract:

The objective of this program was to evaluate the stability of several propellants when aged in contact with plastic adhesives and foams. The test program described in this report was performed using thermal analysis techniques to evaluate the compatibility of propellants M-26, PYRO and NACO with a variety of plastic adhesives and foams. The data generated give a statistical measure of propellant stability during aging in contact with the plastics. No data were generated regarding the effect of the propellant on the plastic materials.
