The thermal decomposition characteristics of the ZPP(Zirconium/Potassium perchlorate), widely used as a primary charge of initiators, were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry(DSC). The DSC results with different heating rates were elaborated with AKTS-Thermokinetics software for the determination of the kinetic parameters of the thermal decomposition of ZPP. There was good agreement between the experimental and the simulation curves, based on the determined kinetic parameters, which indicates the validity of the kinetic description of the thermal decomposition process of ZPP.
