Detailed Product Description:
Colorless crystalline solid. Soluble in water, alcohol and alkalies.
A nitrate of ammonia, a white crystalline solid at room temperature
and standard pressure. Commonly used as an oxidizer in fertilizers,
insecticides & herbicides, and as a nutrient for antibiotics synthesis.
This is USP Grade material with minimum 99.5% purity.
It is commonly used in agriculture as a high-nitrogen fertilizer.
Ammonium nitrate is used in cold packs, as hydrating the salt is
an endothermic process.
Ammonium nitrate is an important component of many fertilizer
mixtures. It provides a source of nitrogen to plants, which increases
growth and crop yields.
Ammonium nitrate is non-flammable and a fire from ammonium
nitrate is very unlikely. However, it is a strong oxidizing agent
that can cause combustible materials (such as wood, paper, and oil)
to ignite. Irritant to skin and tissue.
Under normal handling conditions, ammonium nitrate is not harmful.
However, inhalation of high concentrations of ammonium nitrate dust
can cause respiratory tract irritation. Ammonium nitrate forms a mild
acid when mixed with water. This acid can cause irritation to the eyes,
nose, and skin.
