Abstract
In this phase I effort Powdermet proposes to develop lightweight thermally insulating structural insulator material for an smokeless propellant system in the 3000-4000F operating temperature range. In this program five refractory syntactic composite materials maximizing specific strength, temperature capability, and thermal shock resistance while lowering thermal conductivity and density will be developed using Powdermet high strength low weight microballoon technology as syntactic reinforcements for C-103 Niobium alloy, fully stabilized Zirconia, ZrB2/SiC , Tantalum, and Molybdenum.
