Product Description

English name: Ammonium Perchlorate
CAS RN:7790-98-9
1. Product Profile
Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is white crystal, soluble in water and hygroscopic. It is a kind of strong oxidizers. When AP is mixed with reducing agent, organics, inflammable materials, such as, sulfur, phosphorus or metal powder, the mixture can caused the risk of burning or explosion. When it is contacted with strong acid, the mixture can also have the risk of explosion.

1.1molecular weight: 117.49

1.2 molecular formula:NH4ClO4

Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) has been used as an oxidizer for rocket propellant and mixed explosive. It can also be used in fireworks, hail prevention agent, oxidizer, analytic agent, etching agent, etc. It can also be used to produce other borohydrides, reducer, drifting agent for wood and paper, foaming agent for plastics, boranes, etc. In addition, AP is used in measurement of phosphor content and medicines.

Storage & Packing

Package: Iron barrel packaging with inner plastic bag. After removing the air in the bag, the mouth of the bag should be tightened.
