Ammonium NitrateAmmonium Nitrate ((NH4)(NO3)) is a colorless crystalline solid, used to make fertilizers and explosives, and as a nutrient in producing antibiotics and yeast. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Ammonium Nitrate. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
