Compatibility of Materials with Liquid Oxygen
Insuring the compatibility of materials with liquid oxygen has been a problem with the missile industry from the first use of LOX in propellant systems. Many materials are compatible under static conditions; however, when they are used in missile systems where dynamic or shock producing conditions are ever present, a severe hazard of detonation exists. The cryogenic industry has been aware of this problem for some time, although the study to date has been restricted to solving the immediate problems of producing and transporting the fluid.
