Potassium nitrate is a broad and versatile product that finds many applications. One of the most common uses of the product is as a fertilizer. On both small and large scales the product is used to increase soil nitrate levels (NO 3 – ) and add potassium (K + ). This can greatly benefit the growth and quality of the crop. Other uses of potassium nitrate are in making personal care products, pesticides, antifreezes, tree stump removers and much more. Potassium nitrate also works as a great oxidizer which, among other things, can be useful in certain chemical experiments.
Potassium nitrate is a white to dirty gray crystalline solid that is highly soluble in water. The substance is not flammable, but due to its properties as an oxidizer it can accelerate the combustion of flammable materials. When large quantities are involved in a fire or when flammable material is finely divided, this can even lead to an explosion. This classifies the substance as mildly hazardous.
Because the substance is classified as hazardous, we at DutchChems only sell the product to our customers in limited quantities. These quantities vary from 1 kg to a maximum of 5 kg in a single order. The shipping box in which the product is shipped will also be labeled:
