Abstract : The Advanced Polymer Components initiative began in December 1989. The initial purpose of the program was to explore advanced engineering polymers for use as rocket propulsion components. As research progressed it became apparent that advanced thermoplastics in general were highly dependent on processing and post-processing as well as on chemical composition and morphology. This realization led to a branching of the original objective into an applications research goal and a fundamental research goal. This report, coupled with PL-TR-92-3018, PL-TR-92-3018 Vol. 2 and PL-TR-92-3056, comprise a summary of the entire Advanced Polymer Components Initiative. jg
