Abstract : A series of tests was performed to confirm that the Gemini B Hatch Actuator Breech combustible compounds were representative of the NASA Gemini compounds and have properties that will preclude autoignition when exposed to the Gemini B high temperature and low pressure usage environment. Testing included high temperature-altitude soaks of Gemini B compounds and a chemical analysis of both Gemini B and NASA Gemini compounds. (Author)
