This report describes the thermal stability testing and evaluation of four additives that were down-selected from several candidates from several additive manufactures - each of which give thermal stability improvements at least as good as the currently approved and qualified additive, Spec-Aid 8Q462. The report also describes the testing of an additional 5th additive received late in the program. In summary, the four new additives were determined to have the same or better thermal stability performance in JP-8 fuel as the currently approved additive, Spec-Aid 8Q462. These additives along with Spec-Aid 8Q462 are recommended for further evaluation in the Phase II Fit-For-Purpose and Specification Compliance Testing.
