Abstract:

The C-55A propellant is a cast composite utilizing a carboxyl-terminated-polybutadiene binder cross-linked with a trifunctional imine. C-55A propellant delivers a specific impulse representative of state-of-the-art aluminum-ammonium perchlorate A1-AP composite propellants. It has excellent physical properties and is ideal for use in case bonded motors. C-55A propellant will withstand prolonged storage at temperatures up to 135 F with little change in physical properties if the propellant is protected by a moisture seal. C-55A propellant is currently being used in a rocket motor developed by the U. S. Naval Ordnance Test Station NOTS, China Lake, California designated NOTS Mod 401A rocket motor.
