Abstract : Compatibility tests were performed on a number of polymeric materials with the use of various mixtures of fluorine and oxygen in both gaseous and liquid states. The purpose of these tests was to investigate the feasibility of using fluorine-oxygen mixtures in rocket-propulsion systems containing some nonmetallic materials. The tests were divided into two major areas, static tests and dynamic tests.
