Abstract : An element of a strong bond system between propellants containing mobile constituents such as carboranes, ferrocenes, or nitroglycerin and composite (fiber/resin) cases is provided by coating the insulated (or uninsulated) case with metal that is etched or abraded after the metal is deposited by flame spraying or vapor deposition. The propellant is then cast upon the etched or abraded metal surface which functions as a barrier to migration of the mobile constituents as well as a part of the bond system. (Author)
