Aging studies on carboxy terminated polybutadiene (CTPB) and CTPB-based propellants have been carried out. The increase in the cross-link density during aging has been measured using a thermomechanical analyzer. During aging, a correlation has been shown between the cross-link density and the ignition temperature of the binder as well as of the propellant. The ignition temperature vs cross-link density results were found to show an opposite trend in CTPB and CTPB-based propellants, suggesting that the two ignition mechanisms are different.
