ISRO Polyol - The Versatile Binder for Composite Solid Propellants for Launch Vehicles and Missiles
Keywords: Apogee motors, Binder propellant, HTPB propellants, Propellants
AbstractA family of propellants based on a low cost hydroxy terminated binder has been developed and proved in large size motors. It can meet the requirements of Apogee motors as well as large boosters. The system offers advantages comparable with HTPB propellants in terms of high ballistic performance, stringent mechanical properties, ease and reliability of cure even at ambient conditions and high storage stability. The near-Newtonian flow behaviour, simplicity and processing characteristics of this saturated binder propellant are particularly note-worthy.
