CAS RN:6484-52-2

NFPA Hazard Classification

Ammonium Nitrate

Flammability: 0
Health: 0Instability: 3
Special: OX

Health: 0 (Minimal)
Materials that, on exposure under fire conditions, offer no hazard beyond that of ordinary combustible material.

Flammability: 0 (Minimal)
This degree includes any material that will not burn under typical fire conditions.

Instability: 3 (Serious)
This degree includes materials that, in themselves, are capable of detonation, explosive decomposition, or explosive reaction, but require a strong initiating source or heating under confinement. This includes materials that are sensitive to thermal and mechanical shock at elevated temperatures and pressures and materials that react explosively with water. Fires involving these materials should be fought from a protected location.

Special: Oxidizer
The material is an oxidizer.
