Abstract : The patent application concerns the use of polysulfones in the manufacture of cartridges. Polysulfones are superior to prior art resinous materials insofar as their use in the manufacture of resinous cartridges-both consumable and non-consumable-is concerned. Non-consumable cartridges having qualities rivaling those of brass and being much lighter and less expensive than brass may be fabricated from polysulfones alone. Consumable cartridges of excellent quality may be fabricated from polysulfones and oxidizers such as ammonium or potassium perchlorate.
