Abstract:

The feasibility of polymeric compounds in the dual role of bonding and fuel in pyrotechnic mixtures has been demonstrated by ignition and combustion studies of pyrotechnic grain in small munitions. Data obtained also show the superiority of polymeric fuels having optimum contents of sulfur and oxygen. Formulations for two theoretically ideal polymeric bonding and fuel compounds have been postulated. Author
