Sodium nitrate soluble in water, methyl alcohol, extremely easily dissolves in ammonia, micro-dissolve in glycerin. It easily deliquesce in the air.It absorbs large amount of heat while dissolving in water. It has strong oxidizing property,It is an oxidant. It will cause combustion or explosion when it is put together with organism, sulfured etc.

Use
This product is an important chemical material and widely used in the industry ,raw material used for enamel, glass, food, inorganic salt, fertilizer, dyes, metallurgy, machinery, medicine, cigarette, analytical chemistry, explosive and fireworks, etc...
Sodium nitrate can be used as raw material for the manufacture of potassium nitrate, dynamite, bitter acid, dyes and pharmaceuticals, and as decoloring agent, defoaming agent, melting-facilitating agent, oxidant, metal cleaning agent etc.

Packaging
Packed in 25kg plastic woven bag, 50kg/500kg/1000kg flexible freight bag, or upon clients' demand.
Storage and transportation
Stored in the dry and ventilation place and prevent rain and sunlight exposure. rained, heated .
Avoid mixing with organic compound or sulphur or reducer during storage and transportation in case of explosion
Handle with care against friction and bounce while handling and pile.
The fire caused bu sodium nitrate can be put out by using lots of water
