Refined Crystal Potassium Nitrate Used in Ceramic Frits, EC Number 231-818-8 Agricultural Use KNO3
Potassium nitrate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula KNO3. It is a colorless transparent rhombic crystal or diamond shaped crystal or white powder, odorless, non-toxic, with a salty and refreshing taste. Potassium nitrate is easily soluble in water, soluble in liquid ammonia and glycerol, and insoluble in anhydrous ethanol and ether.
Potassium nitrate is a chlorine-free nitrogen potassium compound fertilizer with high solubility. Its effective components, nitrogen and potassium, can be quickly absorbed by crops without any chemical residue. It can be used as fertilizer and is suitable for vegetables, fruits, and flowers, as well as some chlorine sensitive crops such as potatoes, strawberries, beans, cabbage, lettuce, peanuts, carrots, onions, blueberries, tobacco, apricots, grapefruit, and avocados, etc.
Potassium nitrate is a strong oxidizing agent that can cause combustion and explosion when in contact with organic matter. Therefore, potassium nitrate should be stored in a cool and dry place, away from flames and heat sources. Avoid co storage and mixed transportation with reducing agents, acids, flammable substances, and metal powders.

3. Potassium Nitrate Application Area
3.1.The Use of Potassium Nitrate in Agriculture:
3.1.1. Promote nitrogen and potassium absorption
Potassium nitrate can promote the absorption of nitrogen and potassium by crops, promote rooting, promote flower bud differentiation, and increase crop yield.
3.1.2. Promote photosynthesis
Potassium can promote photosynthesis and promote the synthesis and transportation of carbohydrates.
3.1.3. Improving crop stress resistance
Potassium nitrate can enhance the stress resistance of crops, such as drought and cold resistance, lodging resistance, disease resistance, and prevention and control of premature aging.
3.1.4. Improve fruit quality
The use of potassium nitrate during fruit enlargement can promote fruit enlargement, increase sugar and water content, and improve fruit quality, yield, and income.
3.2. The Use of Potassium Nitrate in Industry:
3.2.1. KNO3 for glass industry
Potassium nitrate is both a decolorizing agent and a clarifying agent in the production of glass.
3.2.2. KNO3 for ceramic frits
Potassium nitrate mainly provides potassium element in the production of ceramic frits. Its main function is to reduce the melting temperature, increase the expansion coefficient of the frit, and also help to increase the transparency of the frit. The high-temperature viscosity of potassium element is relatively high, which has the effect of expanding the sintering range of glaze. At the same time, due to the action of its nitrate, it will decompose to produce oxygen at high temperatures, so it also has oxidation effect, which is beneficial for improving the whiteness of the frit.
3.2.3. KNO3 for gunpowder
Potassium nitrate plays a role in supplying oxygen in gunpowder. Potassium nitrate can provide sufficient oxygen to support combustion during the combustion process of gunpowder. In addition, potassium nitrate also helps to improve the combustion rate of gunpowder.
