3. Application: Octylferrocene has been used as a modifier of increasing burning rate in composite solid propellants.It could control not only the curing reaction rate but the burning rate when applied to the burning rate catalyst in HTPB composite solid propellants. It can improve the processing performance and mechanical properties of slurry, and has a good storage performance. It can also be used as oil-saving and smoke-eliminating agent for fuel oils, combustion supporting catalyst for gas and ultraviolet absorbent etc.

4. Safety instructions: Octylferrocene could be oxidized slowly when exposed to air. Polymerized under high temperature and burned if mixed with strong oxidizer.

5. Packing: Two plastic casks in a wooden case. Net Weight: 10 kg/cask; 20 kg/case.

6. Storage: Stored in a cool, ventilated place. Avoid heat and exposure. The shelf life is 12 months after manufacturer date. It is still available if retest result is qualified after expire date.

7. Transportation: Keep upright when transported. Avoid violent collision and exposure.Do not transport with strong oxidizers.
