Abstract  

Titanium hydride/potassium perchlorate (THPP) is a pressure producing pyrotechnic composition consisting of a mixture of titanium dihydride and potassium perchlorate with a small percentage of a Viton binder. The initial phase of the study focused upon chemical analysis of THPP downloaded from parts ranging up to 25 years in age. The DSC curves were too erratic for kinetic analysis; however, high resolution TG curves for the THPP samples revealed a significant difference in the temperature at which the aged materials began displaying mass loss. Isothermal DTA and variable heating rate TG kinetic analysis were employed to determine the activation energy of the THPP.
