What is Nitrocellulose?

Nitrocellulose, also known as cellulose nitrate or guncotton, is a highly flammable compound that is derived from cellulose, a natural polymer found in plant cell walls. It is produced by treating cellulose with a mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acid, resulting in the nitration of the cellulose molecules.

Here are some key points about nitrocellulose:  

1). Combustible Material: Nitrocellulose is highly flammable and can burn rapidly and intensely. It is used as a propellant in ammunition, explosives, and fireworks due to its ability to rapidly release a large amount of energy when ignited.

2). Film and Coatings: Nitrocellulose is also widely used in the production of flexible films and coatings. It can be dissolved in solvents such as alcohol or esters to form a solution, which can then be applied as a coating or used to make celluloid films. Nitrocellulose-based films have been used historically in photography, cinematography, and as the base material for motion picture film.

3). Adhesives and Binders: Nitrocellulose is used as an adhesive in various industries, including woodworking, bookbinding, and leatherworking. It can be dissolved in solvents to create a liquid adhesive that dries quickly and forms a strong bond.

4). Lacquers and Varnishes: Nitrocellulose-based lacquers and varnishes are widely used for finishing and protecting surfaces such as wood, metal, and plastic. The solubility of nitrocellulose in certain solvents allows for easy application and fast drying, resulting in a smooth, glossy finish.

5). Safety Considerations: Due to its flammable nature, proper safety precautions must be followed when handling and storing nitrocellulose. It should be kept away from open flames, heat sources, and reactive materials.

6). Historical Use: Nitrocellulose was first discovered in the mid-19th century and played a significant role in the development of explosives and early photography. However, its use in certain applications has declined over the years due to safety concerns and the development of alternative materials.

It's important to note that the composition and properties of nitrocellulose can vary depending on the degree of nitration and other factors. Different types of nitrocellulose are used for different applications, with varying levels of flammability and solubility. Proper handling and adherence to safety guidelines are essential when working with nitrocellulose.     
Our trade process spreads across CIF, FOB, TTO, and TTT, depending on the buyer's preference.

Here's what they entail:

1). Cost Insurance and Freight (CIF): Here, the seller will handle everything from loading the vessel, paying for insurance, and sending the product to wherever the buyer wants it delivered.

2). Freight On Board (FOB): Here, the seller pays for the transportation of the goods to the port of shipment, plus loading costs, while the buyer pays the cost of marine freight transport, insurance, unloading, and transportation from the originating port to the final destination.

3). Tanker Take Over (TTO): Here, the buyer will take over the vessel, offload the product at their destination, and return it.

4). Tanker To Tanker (TTT): Here, the buyer uses their own vessel, long sides with the seller's vessel, and then the cargo is transshipped when the transaction is fully settled.
