Abstract:

A study of manufacture and properties of Napalm soaps is presented. The study is concerned with the effect of variation in the ratios and specifications of raw materials employed, and the effect of oxidation inhibitors of gel consistency. Relationships existing among gasoline quality, moisture content, concentration, and consistency, are investigated. It was found that varying the composition of Napalm from the standard to 2.11 ratio of coconut to oleic to napthenic acid, indicates that the viscosity of the gel increases primarily with increased oleic acids and to a lesser extent with increased coconut acid above normal composition. The acid number of the coconut acid has been found important.
