Abstract : Precision dilatometer experiments have shown that very significant improvements in gel stability - one order of magnitude - can be achieved by using high purity ingredients. Unique nonadhesive gellants previously discovered in this program likewise improve stability with a variety of solid fuel additives. Nonadhesive gels cannot be characterized by some of the existing procedures, however flow rheograms and centrifuge tests have confirmed that the new gellants are superior. (Author)
