Abstract:

EXPOSIVES TYPICALLY BEGIN TO DETONATE WHEN HEATED TO TEMPERATURES ON THE ORDER OF 200 DEG C. THUS IT HAS BEEN RECOGNIZED THAT IT WOULD BE VERY DESIRABLE TO INCREASE THE TIME AT WHICH WEAPONS REMAIN BELOW ABOUT 150 DEG C, EVEN IF THIS INCREASE IS ONLY A FEW MINUTES. COATINGS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED WHICH MAINTAIN WEAPON TEMPERATURES BELOW 200 DEG C FOR ALMOST FIVE MINUTES EVEN WHEN THE WEAPON IS EXPOSED TO AVIATION FUEL FIRE. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH EXPLORES THE FEASIBILITY OF MAINTAINING THE SAME COATING THICKNESS BUT BY CHANGING THE PAINT FORMULATION TO EXTEND THE PROTECTION OF THE SUBSTRATE FROM 5 TO HOPEFULLY MORE THAN 8 MINUTES.
