Abstract : This invention relates to a gas generant propellant composition having low flame temperatures comprising an elastomeric binder consisting of a mixture of polyethylene capped polypropylene glycol and a dihydroxy tetrazole; a curative agent such as the biuret trimer of hexamethylene diisocyanate; a plasticizer agent such as 1-methyl-5 (methoxyethyl) tetrazole; a coolant agent such as oxamide; and a deflagrating agent selected from the group consisting of: dihydrazinium 3,6-bis(5-tetrazolyl)-1,2-dihydrotetrazine dinitrosopentamethylene tetramine, the reaction product of glyoxal and hydrazine and the ammonium salt of 5-nitramino tetrazole.
