Abstract : The interior surfaces of gun barrels are protected from wear and corrosion by applying a laminar additive of an organic compound to a gun propellant in such a manner that the heat generated by firing of the gun causes the compound to decompose thereby evolving gaseous products which buffer said interior surfaces from the corrosive and wearing effects of the combustion products of the propellant.
