A New Family of Low-Density, Flexible Ablators

The low-density, flexible ablators are comprised of a polymer resin embedded in a fibrous substrate, with a density range of 0.2g/cm cube-0.6 g/cm cube to date. The polymer resin thermally decomposes during ablation. The resin can be a thermo setting resin, athermoplastic polymer, or alternatively...
