Abstract: 
We discuss the problem of paraffin-based systems’ intensification. Such systems can be used in the teсhnologies of the
fuel charges for hybrid rockets. The shear adhesion strength for a paraffin-based system with chains of a different length is determined experimentally. The mechanism of paraffin-based fuel spraying using a transverse plasma arc is proposed. This mechanism is associated with the changes in a quantity and a form of bonds between paraffin molecules.
Keywords: hybrid rockets, paraffin-based fuel, spraying, transverse plasma arc
