NH4NO3 – Ammonium Nitrate – CAS 6484-52-2

This month we are highlighting a specialty product used in the ordnance, explosives, pyrotechnics, and other fields. It has been a severe winter here in the northeastern USA and our loss is your gain. Many outdoor projects were placed on hold or otherwise delayed. We want you to get the most bang for your buck so we have chosen to offer Ammonium Nitrate as our April special.  Give us a call today or contact us by email (info@easternstrategicmaterials.com) for all of your specialty chemical and ordnance needs.

Our featured product is 99.950% purity, chemical formula NH4NO3, CAS 6484-52-2; meets and/or exceeds MIL-A-175A.

We are able to offer custom packaging solutions.

Boron Powder

This month we are highlighting our offering of Boron Powder (Amorphous).

Boron is a desirable chemical for use in several key industrial applications. Useful as a scavenger to prevent oxygen induced corrosion as well as increasing production efficiency in copper and other metals formation. As an addition to important alloys, Boron Powder (Amorphous) is used to harden steel and other ferrous metals.

With the atomic number 5 on the periodic table, Boron is useful in moderation and control of nuclear reactions due to its ability to control neutrons or act as a neutron shield.

Boron is also used in the ignition propellant fuel systems of rockets of all sizes, including the now retired USA space shuttle program.

We offer a guaranteed minimum specification of:

Boron: ≥ 95%

Water Soluble Boron: ≤ 0.2%

Hydrogen Peroxide Insolubles: ≤ 1.0 %

Moisture: ≤ 0.5 %

Nitrogen: ≤ 0.4 %

Magnesium: ≤ 0.8 %

Oxygen: ≤ 2.2 %

Particle Size (average): 1.0 μ Maximum as measured per ASTM B330

Specific Surface Area: 10.0 m2/g

Our Boron Powder meets or exceeds mil standard MIL-B-5192 (ORD). It is typically packed in 50 pound drums; however, we are able to meet any special packaging requirements you may have.
