Calcium nitrate, also called Norgessalpeter (Norwegian saltpeter), is the inorganic compound with the formula Ca(NO3)2. This colorless salt absorbs moisture from the air and is commonly found as a tetrahydrate. One of our flagship products, Ã¢ÂÂDiamondÃ¢ÂÂ brand Calcium Nitrate (Ca(NO3)2.4H2O) has served an exclusive clientele, both international and domestic, for over 2 decades now.Â
Calcium Nitrate finds application in many industries, ranging from fertilizer manufacture to commercial explosives manufacture. Some of the interesting applications are listed below.
1) Latex Gloves Manufacture :-
Calcium Nitrate (coagulant grade) is used in the latex gloves manufacturing business as a coagulant. It is specially treated with activated carbon to remove all organic chemicals. This ensures lower rejection of gloves, lesser production of second-quality gloves, long-term stable color and long-term non hardening. We are proud to claim that we serve all latex gloves manufacturers in India without exception, apart from exporting to Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and a host of other countries.
2) Use in Fertilizer
The fertilizer grade of Calcium Nitrate, Calcium Ammonium Nitrate (commonly known as CAN) is popular in the greenhouse and hydroponics trades; it contains ammonium nitrate and water, as the "double salt" (5Ca(NO3)2.NH4NO3.10H2O). We plan to begin its production soon.
3) Other Applications
Ã¢ÂÂDiamondÃ¢ÂÂ brand Calcium Nitrate is frequently used in sewage treatment and in the manufacture of commercial explosives and Coco-Peat. We also manufacture high purity ACS grade Calcium Nitrate for food grade, biotechnology and laboratory applications.
