What Is Hipel 710

Referring to the trade name for a hydroxyl-terminated polybutidiene (HTPB) propellant, comprising 84% ammonium perchlorate (NH4 ClO4) (oxidizer), 9.1% HTPB (fuel), 0.7% aluminum trihydrate (Al2 O3 x3H2 O) (burn rate catalyst), 0.2% Fe2 O3 (burn rate stabilizer), and 6% polymide (Kermid 601). This is a readily ignitable propellant mixture. The mixture is sensitive to ignition by flame, heat, friction, impact or electrostatic discharge. When ignited, the mixture burns producing heat, flame, hot gases and hot particles. It offers a long shelf life and high stability. Since it is a simple composite propellant, it has less volatile contaminants than other available gun propellants.

FUNCTIONS

As a core gun propellant (bore hole formation sampling), with high stability, improved shelf life and benign environmental impacts, Hipel 710 is well suited for use in the oil & gas market.

APPLICATIONS

Hipel 710 has a long history of use by a leading provider of oil & gas services.
