Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) is a polymer of butadiene terminated at each end with a hydroxyl functional group. It reacts with diisocyanate to form polyurethane, a stable and easily stored synthetic material.HTPB is a translucent liquid with a very similar color to wax paper, it is highly viscous. The properties cannot be precisely stated, because HTPB is manufactured in various grades to meet specific requirements. HTPB is thus a generic name for a class of compounds. It consists of many butadiene molecules linked together into a polymer forming polybutadiene. Both ends of the chain are terminated with a hydroxide ion [OH-], thus giving it the name Hydroxyl-Terminated Polybutadiene. It is used in model rocketry as a high power fuel known commonly as RBS. It has also found its way into the pyrotechnics industry with a use as mortar tubes for aerial-shell fireworks.
