Abstract : The present invention relates to improved homogeneous propellant molding powder and to the process for preparation thereof. This process contrasts with the old, but frequently used process for compounding propellant powders which involves preparing a solution of the soluble binder material, suspending the solid components in the solution, and precipitating the binder by quenching with a nonsolvent.
