Abstract : A dimethyl hydantoin bonding agent is incorporated into a propellant system so as to interact with and bond various filler materials into a cured binder system. Therefore, it is an object of this invention to provide a method for bonding a filler in a cured binder. It is a further object of this invention to provide a method for bonding a filler in a binder having application to a large number of binders and fillers. It is a still further object of this invention to provide a method for bonding ammonium nitrate in a binder. Yet another object of this invention is to provide a method for bonding potassium perchlorate in a binder. Another object of this invention is to provide a method for bonding ammonium perchlorate in a binder. Also it is an object of this invention to provide a method for bonding a mixture of oxidizers in a binder. It is a still further object of this invention to provide a method for bonding HMX in a binder. Another object of this invention is to provide a method for bonding RDX in a binder. Yet another object of this invention is to provide a composition comprising a filled binder having a filler strongly bound therein. It is a still further object of this invention to provide a filled binder having the filler strongly bound therein suitable for use as a propellant.
