Abstract : An organo-metallic ballistic modifier is produced as an evaporation residue by the reaction of normal lead beta resorcylate and monobasic cupric salicylate in an aqueous solution of water or alcohol at an elevated temperature (180 F - 220 F). The modifier allows the use of a solvent or solvent/solventless process in the production of double base propellants exhibiting a mesa burning rate.
