The high-strain rate response of polymers is becoming increasingly important to understand, given their widespread use in many industries. In particular, they are used as bonding agents in the production of materials such as polymer bonded explosives. In this case, their properties become especially important to understand since the safety of the energetic composition depends upon their response. There are three broad classes of polymer microstructure; elastomers, thermoplastics, and thermosets. The shock response of one of the first of these three classes is investigated in this work. Work is described in which the Hugoniot of the material is investigated using plate impact experiments, measuring the stress at varying positions to determine the shock and the stress-particle velocity state. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.
