Properties and Observations

Nitrocellulose may be in granular form or in flakes. This product may also contain added pigments. When involved in a fire, evolves toxic fumes; in closed compartments, these fumes may form an explosive mixture with air. Burns extremely rapidly with intense heat radiation. The formulation should be prepared so that it remains homogeneous and does not separate during transport. May form extremely sensitive compounds with heavy metals or their salts.
