Leading Manufacturer and Supplier of Azide Chemical such as Lead Azide, Potassium Azide and Sodium Azide from Vapi.
CAS No 13424-46-9
Application / Uses Preparation Lead azide is an inorganic compound. More so than other azides, Pb(N3)2 is explosive. It is used in detonators to initiate secondary explosives. In a commercially usable form, it is a white-to-buff powder.
Application / Uses Preparation Potassium azide is the chemical compound having the formula KN3. It is the potassium salt of hydrazoic acid, and crystallizes in a tetragonal structure. Upon heating or irradiation with ultraviolet light, it decomposes into potassium metal and nitrogen gas. Unlike heavy-metal azides, it is not sensitive to shock, but may explode if heated rapidly.
Application / Uses Preparation Sodium azide is the inorganic compound with the formula NaN3. This colourless azide salt is the gas-forming component in many car airbag systems. It is used for the preparation of other azide compounds. Being an ionic substance, it is highly soluble in water. It is extremely toxic.
