Solid Rocket Propellant
Formulation Data

This page lists propellant formulation information not available in the "How To Make Amateur Rockets" book. The propellant parameters will be adjust from time to time to provide a more accurate characterization as more motor firing data on a particular formulation becomes available.

Note: Curing agent ratio = (Wt. of curing agent)/(Wt. of binder) = (0.8) * (Equivalent weight of curing agent)/(Equivalent weight of binder)
This assumes 80% linkage for a flexible propellant. Other curing agents can be used, but an adjustment to the curing agent ratio will have to be made.
