Abstract: The article presents experimental studies of ultrafine metal powders of aluminum, copper, iron, tungsten,
titanium, zinc, nickel, alloys of copper with aluminum, copper with iron and brass. The thermal properties of their
mixtures with methyl polyvinyl tetrazole and plasticized propylenglycoldinitrate are described; numerical values of
significant characteristics are indicated.
The results of the study showed that a significant amount of heat is released when heating aluminum, zinc, titanium
and iron powders; when heating mixtures with a binder, the best results correspond to an alloy of copper with iron,
aluminum and an alloy of copper with aluminum.
Index terms: UDP metals, tetrazole binder, thermal analysis.
