ROCKET LINER PROGRAM
HUGHES AIRCRAFT CO CULVER CITY CALIF
A series of stannosiloxane polymers were prepared essentially from phenylmethylsilicon and diorganotin derivatives in which about 40 of the organic ligands are phenyl groups. These polymers were prepared with the aim of preparingAN ELASTOMER POSSESSING OPTIMAL CHAR-FORMING PROPERTIES CONSISTENT WITH RETENTION OF STRAINTOLERANCE WHEN COMPOUNDED WITH INORGANIC FILLERS AND CURED. Preliminary evaluation of pyrolytic behavior of these materials indicated that they are promising candidate materials for the rocket motor case insulation application. Several other polymers including an arsenosiloxane, an aluminosiloxane and nitrogen-containing silicon polymers were prepared and methods for curing these materials with various silicon hydrides were explored.
