Potassium nitrate. Potassium saltpeter. Pure

Species: clean

Specification
Name: Potassium nitrate
Synonyms: Potassium saltpeter, Indian saltpeter
Genre: Clean
Purity: Pure 99.5%
Chemical formula: KNO3

Application
Potassium saltpeter is an oxidant. For this reason, its main application was the production of black gunpowder. Currently used in pyrotechnics as an oxidizer, among others to produce photobanks, i.e. short and very bright light pulses obtained during the combustion of a mixture of nitrate and metal dust. When mixed with a saccharide, e.g. sucrose in stoichiometric proportions and melting, it forms a flammable substance (known as caramel or caramel) with a flash point of about 400 ° C, reaches a temperature of 600 ° C and produces a lot of smoke
Until the early 20th century, potassium nitrate was used to obtain nitric acid
Currently, it is mainly used for the production of potassium nitrite, for nitration
Preservative.
Potassium nitrate mixed with sugar or powdered sugar is the basic fuel component (oxidant) in self-made pyrotechnics.
