Picric Acid, 10% waterPicric Acid, 10% water (C6H3N3O7) is a paste consisting of the yellow crystalline solid mixed with water. The dry chemical compound is a sensitive high explosive. The mixture with water is considered safe for storage, handling and shipping. Can be detonated with a number 8 electric blasting cap. The primary hazard is blast where the entire load explodes instantaneously and not from flying projectiles fragments. Can explode under prolonged exposure to heat. . Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Picric Acid, 10% water. That’s why we suggest one of the following: SUPERLoc, DRUMLoc, FIRELoc
