He formulation. Quarterly report, April--June 1965

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

This project was initiated to study the manufacture of new explosive formulations. Production and quality parameters are determined; among these are viscosity, composition, particle size distribution, processing variables and raw materials, and their effect on operation, safety characteristics, producibility, and physical and explosive properties. Pastes, extrudables, and PBX`s are among the formulations. One 20-pound batch of XTX-8003 was made to complete a milling study and two 28-pound batches were made to fill an LRL order. No problems were encountered during the manufacturing operation, and test fire results were satisfactory. The effort to resolve some of the problems with LX-04 included ... continued below

No problems were encountered during the manufacturing operation, and test fire results were satisfactory. The effort to resolve some of the problems with LX-04 included evaluating reprocessing techniques and testing various binders. Outstanding elongation results were obtained with Fluorel 1700 binder. Also, a reasonably good elongation was obtained with Lot 16 Viton when the slurry coating was performed in the 100-gallon kettle. The washing and reworking, with extra solvent, of production Lot 27B improved elongation somewhat, but not enough for production acceptance.
