The considerably lower bulk density of the extruded EXAMPLE ll propellants in the 5.56 and 7.62 mm caliber range Double base 50nd cylinder. when compared to the ball propellant has been the 30 cause of several problems in their efficient utilization in small arms ammunition. For example, (a) excessively low cyclic rates have at times resulted, when used f? in the Ml6 rifle, thereby causing increased malfunc- Ethylene Dirnethacrylate 4 tions, (b) ballistic requirements frequently could not be P l Graphite Coating .2% (added) satisfied because of insufficient propellant, and so on. m) 1 With the trend toward modern, compact, high velocity Length 12 Diameter .025" cartridges, optimum propellant loading densities for Bulk Density 920 small arms cartridges must be made available to our military forces. 40

Accordingly, it is a principal object of this invention to provide extruded propellants for the smaller caliber cartridges with improved bulk densities. EXAMPLE In Other objects and features of the invention will be- Single base, mono'perforatedl come apparent as the invention is more fully hereinaf- Same P IiOH and L/D as in Example I. ter disclosed.

Briefly, we have discovered that improvements in bulk density of single or double base extruded propellants can be obtained through the use of conventional Length .031" equipment by altering the matrix and surfaces of the g p Cl ora IOII individual propellant grains. I Bulk Dem), 910 gm/cc More specifically, an increase in bulk density will be obtained when using propellant grains having a cylindrical shape wherein its diameter and length are substantially the same, but more importantly, by imparting substantially non-fibrous characteristics to these ex- EXAMPLE W truded propellant grains.

A relationship exists between bulk density and length Double base wono'perforatedj E 1 to diameter ratio (L/D) of the propellant grain, i.e., for Same Composmon and LID as m P e a given grain length, the bulk density will increase as L/D is made to approximate 0.9 to l.l. The grains may be extruded solid cylinders, or mono-perforated For single base, solid cylinder, the grain length will nor- Length mally not exceed about 0.025 inch, whereas about f Perforation .007 0.027 inch will define the maximum length of double Bulk Density 9 base solid cylinders.

In order to more clearly define one aspect of our invention, namely, the effect of L/D upon bulk density, the following examples for fibrous propellants are Referring to Table l, and more particularly to IMR 8138M, which is a single base extruded propellant having the identical composition as shown in Example I above but with the following geometry:

IMR 8138M L/D L4 Length .042" Diameter .030" Perforation .007 Bulk Density .885 gm/cc As shown in Examples III (perforated) and I (unperforated), the bulk densities will be increased from 0.885 to 0.910 and 0.915 gm/cc respectively by the expediency of providing an L/D of l. Ballistic data are not supplied for our higher density propellants since it is well understood in the art that higher bulk densities will provide greater charges with a concomitant increase in projectile velocity. In other propellant batches, illustrated by Examples I through IV, the bulk densities did not vary more than 0.002 gm/cc when MD was varied from 0.9 to l.l.

Conventional solvent extruded propellants have a relatively rough surface because, in the manufacturing process, the nitrocellulose retains much of its fibrous character. Upon extrusion, these fibers orient themselves in the direction of the extruding force. When the solvent-wet grains dry, the surface becomes rough because of the oriented fibrous structure. We have discoverd that a major improvement in bulk density will result when the surfaces of the propellant grains are rendered smooth and non-fibrous. This desired object may readily be achieved through the use of colloided nitrocellulose as a starting material, or the grains may be smoothed by tumble-polishing in a suitable mill, for example, or the like.

Examples of these improved bulk density extruded propellants are presented below:

EXAMPLE V Single base, solid cylinder, smooth surfaced: Same composition and dimensions as in Example I, but colloided nitrocellulose used as a starting material.

Bulk Density .938 gm/cc EXAMPLE VI Double base, solid cylinder, smooth surfaced: Same composition and dimensions as in Example II, but colloided nitrocellulose used as a starting material.

Bulk Density .947 gm/cc EXAMPLE VII Single base, mono-perforated, smooth surfaced: Same composition, and dimensions as in Example III, but colloided nitrocellulose used as a starting material.

Bulk Density .932 gm/cc EXAMPLE VIII Double base, mono-perforated, smooth surfaced: Same composition, and dimensions as in Example IV, but colloided nitrocellulose used as a starting material.

Bulk Density .940 gm/cc Thus, it is seen for similar compositions and dimensions, the use of colloided nitrocellulose provided an average increase of 0.024 gm/cc in bulk density.

In other propellant batches illustrated by Examples V through VIII, bulk density did not vary more than .002 gm/cc when L/D was varied from 0.9 to L].

In fabricating our improved propellants, conventional equipment will be used. The water wet nitrocellulose is first dehydrated by alcohol displacement in a dehydrating press. The alcohol wet nitrocellulose may now be fed into a suitable mixer and then stabilizers, plasticizers and other additives (as required), and solvents such as alcohol and acetone will be added. It is interesting to note here that a modest improvement in bulk density results if the acetone to alcohol ratio is increased to approximately 3 to l, over their conven tional l to 1 ratio. Similarly, if the solvent to solids ratio is increased to 7 to 3 in lieu of the standard I to 2, which promotes increased colloidization of the matrix, a small increase in bulk density will again be realized. These increased ratios will necessitate a drying down of the mix at the end of the mixing cycle in order that a dough of proper consistency will be achieved. Another slight improvement in density results when these mixed ingredients are permitted to age for a period of at least 24 hours prior to extrusion.

The mix will then be subjected to maceration which assists in shredding the fibrous mix. The dough will then be consolidated in a blocking press and extruded through a macaroni or screening press, which further destroys the fibrous structure of the nitrocellulose. Prior to final extrusion, the dough will again be blocked in a blocking press. The extruded strands are then fed into a cutter for cutting into desired lengths. The cut propellant will then be subjected to standard solvent removal processes which may include forced air drying at elevated temperatures and water dry processes which will lower the amount of total volatiles remaining in the finished propellant.

In general, any operation which smoothes the surfaces of the grain by grinding off sharp edges thereof will improve bulk density of the grains. Grinding may be accomplished while the propellant is in the undried or green" state. The propellant may be finished" by coating with deterrent using standard methods and by coating with small amounts of graphite.

We wish it to be understood that we do not desire to be limited to the exact details described, for obvious modifications will occur to a person skilled in the art.
