Abstract:

Fire-resistant fuels have been investigated by the United States Army as a means of reducing the risk of fire in land combat vehicles and certain aircraft. One approach has been the use of high-molecular-weight polymer additives for suppression of mist formations. The polymers which are effective in mist suppression are very difficult to dissolve in fuel. A newly discovered process for dissolving high-molecular-weight polymers is investigated to determine its applicability to the preparation of mist suppression fuels. The conclusions area that certain high-molecular-weight polymers which show strong mist suppression behavior can be dissolved rapidly in diesel fuel and that the new dissolving process appears to be adaptable to field use.
