Product Information

Potassium nitrate is an oxidizer used in black powder, primes, glitter and spark-producing formulations.

This is the most economical potassium nitrate to use in making black powder. But, we have a limited amount of this material, and do not believe we will be able to carry it as a regularly stocked item.

"Prilled" material consists of 1/16 inch to 1/8 inch spheres. This nitrate has been stored for a long time and has some discoloration. It has less than 1/10 of 1% foreign matter in it--small chips of rock and cement, mostly. And some of the nitrate is chunky.

You will need to mill this material, but it can be quickly done with either a ball mill or an inexpensive coffee/spice grinder from Walmart.

We have tested ball milling it for black powder and it works just fine, despite it's appearance.

(saltpeter) [KNO3] White prills

Each unit is 10 lbs.
