Abstract
Bonding agents are critical components that are designed to improve the interfacial interaction between the oxidizer and binder in solid rocket propellants. There is no effective bonding agent for propellant systems with multifunctional oxidizers and nitrate ester plasticizers in polyether binder systems. In the Phase I program, a new and highly compatible bonding agent was demonstrated to improve compatibility and mechanical properties of nitrate ester plasticized propellants. The proposed Phase II effort will focus on the production process optimization, scale-up, material property validation and rocket motor testing of this highly compatible bonding agent for the Navy. Successful development and transition of the new bonding agent to the Navy and other agencies within the Department of Defense will improve insensitive munition (IM) properties and propellant compatibility enabling higher solids loadings and enhanced performance.
