AbstractMixtures of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) and dioctyladipate (DOA) as a plasticizer, which after crosslinking are applied as binders in heterogeneous propellants, were studied. The influence of mixture composition on rheological and thermal properties, important from technological and utility viewpoint were specified. The temperature dependence of prepared mixtures viscosity were studied. Systems were subjected to crosslinking and values of pot life (tpl) were determined. It was stated that tpl rose with increasing plasticizer content. Differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetry techniques were used to analyze thermal stability of mixtures. It was concluded that applied components could not decompose in the temperature range of 290–350 K and studied mixtures did not cause the hazard of thermal explosion.
