Abstract : A highly effective liner-barrier is disclosed for use with carborane-containing ultrahigh burning rate propellants. The liner-barrier includes a resinous matrix selected from an epoxy, polysulfide, and a near neutral phenolic resinous liner-barrier composition, and a leafing aluminum flake incorporated therein. When this liner-barrier is applied to the surface of a rocket motor case, or insulation when used, the leafing aluminum flake floats to a region near the surface of the resin. the liner-barrier is cured to yield a leafing aluminum flake sub-surface layer which markedly reduces the permeability of the linear-barrier by the carboranyl burning rate catalysts which results from the migration or diffusion of the carborane from the propellant. The ultrahigh burning rate propellant is compatible with and forms a secure bond to the liner-barrier. these requirements of compatibility and forming a secure bond are essential for the field of use.
