Study on Various Polyesters as Binders for Pyrotechnic Composition

J.P. Agrawal*, S.N. Singh, D.B. Sarwade, V

ABSTRACT: Two tracer compositions were formulated based on magnesium, strontium nitrate and sodium nitrate with unsaturated non-halo and halo polyesters as binders. They were characterized for mechanical properties, thermal behaviour, burning rate, luminous output, and impact, friction and spark sensitivities. The data show that the composition with chloropolyester as binder is better for tracer compositions.
