Potassium Nitrite SDS MSDS Sheet of Manufacturers
Potassium Nitrate is a powerful oxidizing agent (releases oxygen on heating) and is used in gunpowder and fertilizers.
Potassium Nitrate is used in the manufacture of various types of Glass, Explosive-Blasting powder, Slurry, Dynamics, Matches, Fertilizers, Heat Treatment & Heat transfer salts and Leather processing Industries. Major uses of potassium nitrate are in fertilizers, rocket propellants and fireworks. It is one of the constituents of gunpowder. When used as a food additive in the European Union, the compound is referred to as E252.

Potassium is used in the manufacture of various types of Glass, Explosive-Blasting powder. Slurry, Dynamics, Matches, Fertilizers, Heat Treatment & Heat transfer salts and Leather processing Industries. Potassium nitrate is also one of the three components of black powder, along with powdered charcoal (substantially carbon) and sulfur, where it acts as an oxidizer. Potassium nitrate is an efficient oxidizer, which produces a lilac-colored flame upon burning due to the presence of potassium. It is therefore used in amateur rocket propellants and in several fireworks such as smoke bombs, made with a mixture of sucrose and potassium nitrate. It is also added to pre-rolled cigarettes to maintain an even burn of the tobacco. Potassium nitrate was used to ensure complete combustion of paper cartridges for cap and ball revolvers, as a treatment agent for the paper used to make the cartridges.
In the process of food preservation, potassium nitrate has been a common ingredient of salted meat since the Middle Ages.
Potassium nitrate is the main component (usually about 98%) of tree stump remover, as it accelerates the natural decomposition of the stump. It is also commonly used in the heat treatment of metals as a solvent in the post-wash. The oxidizing, water solubility and low cost make it an ideal short-term rust inhibitor.
Potassium nitrate can be found in some toothpastes for sensitive teeth. It successfully combats high blood pressure and was once used as a hypotensive.
