Abstract Compatibility is an important safety aspect related to the production and storage of energetic materials. To test different combinations of materials a simple test method with clear criteria is advisable. At the last ESTAC the use of microcalorimetry and the vacuum stability test for the compatibility testing of propellants were presented. This paper presents DSC, DTA/TG and (pressure) vacuum stability test results for the same combination. For three polymers (PMMA, PVC and CA) the results for all tests are the same. Only Nylon-6/6 gives a variable result for the different test methods.
