NITRIC ACID

Nitric acid is obtained by an oxidation reaction of ammonia with a platinum catalyst producing nitrous gases which are absorbed by water. Nitric acid is produced in concentrations ranging from 53% to 69% and can be used in many different applications:

  • Nylon 6.6 chemistry (man-made fibres, plastic parts for automobiles).
  • Polyurethane: insulation, foams, paints.
  • Nitrocellulose: varnishes and paints, civil explosives, dyes.
  • Specialty chemicals.
  • Cleaning products for the agro-food industry.
  • Mineral treatment.

Safety Data Sheet •

Mode of application

For agricultural use, nitric acid can be applied directly to irrigation water by means of especially acid-resistant pumps. Due to the exothermic reaction caused by its dissolution in water, it promotes the solubility of other solid fertilisers, the incorporation of which, in contrast, may cause a drop in temperature.
