Abstract:

This includes the investigation of plastic rotating bands fabricated directly to steel projectiles by laminating, casting, fluid bed coating, injection and compression molding. The successful method was to injection mold nylon 12 over a clean and primed projectile seat and then to heat the primed interface to a melt temperature by induction heating the projectile.
