Ammonium Nitrate is a white crystalline, dry prill with the chemical formula NH4NO3.

It is made by reacting nitric acid with anhydrous ammonia under very carefully controlled conditions.

The resulting material is further processed to form granular prills.

Pure Ammonium Nitrate is water soluble. Conditioning agents are added to Ammonium Nitrate so a typical analysis is 34.5% Nitrogen by weight.

Ammonium Nitrate (oxidiser) is used extensively in the mining industry and is intentionally made very porous to allow for the rapid uptake of liquid fuel oil (fuel). This ANFO mixture then becomes an explosive product.

A range of explosive grade porous prill Ammonium Nitrates are sold by EPC-UK Explosives. Ammonium Nitrate can be supplied in either 25kg bags or 1 tonne bags depending on the grade supplied.
