A solid rocket propellant contains fuel, oxidizer and additives to control its ballistic and physical properties. It is cast or extruded and even machined to its final shape.
Roxel designs, develops and manufactures a full range of energetic materials:
- Composite propellants (mainly HTPB)
Composite propellants are mainly made of a solid oxidizer and an organic binder and metal powder and additives to control ballistic and mechanical properties
- Cast composite
- Double base propellants
Double-base propellants are mainly made of nitrocellulose and nitro-glycerine. Additives are included to control ballistic and mechanical properties and to ensure chemical stability
- Cast Double Base (CDB)
- Cross-Linked Double Base (XLDB)
- Elastomer-Modified CDB (EMCDB)
- Extruded Double Base (EDB)
- Advanced energetic propellants (ADN, FOX, GAP, NEPE).
Roxel has the capacity to manufacture all dimensions (mass and diameter) of solid rocket propellants for tactical propulsion systems. A panel of examples can be consulted at Market Segments.
