Nitrocellulose Grade AM

AM-grade nitrocellulose (medium nitrogen grade) which its nitrogen content lies in the range of 11.3 to 11.8, is one of the products that has numerous applications in various industries. ArChem AM-grade nitrocellulose is manufactured by chemical modification on regular nitrocellulose. This product has high purity and acceptable performance. So it can be suitable for different applications like printing inks, coating and etc.  

Nitrogen content influences the solubility and thermoplasticity of nitrocellulose. For example, Nitrocellulose with low nitrogen content has a higher solubility in alcohols and higher thermoplasticity. Nitrocellulose with nitrogen content in the range of 11.3-11.8 is categorized as AM Grade. This product shows mixed characteristics of A and E-grades. It is partially soluble in ethanol (Alcohol medium soluble), and esters and highly compatible with alcohols. 

AM-Grade Nitrocellulose Viscosity

Viscosity determines the strength and durability of different grades of Nitrocellulose. Low-viscosity grades are suitable for inks and coating. For example, ArChem AM Grade Nitrocellulose (extra low viscosity) is used in printing inks.

AM-Grade NC Properties

ArChem AM grade NC shows mixed characteristics of A and E-grades. This product is used in staple coating and printing inks.

AM-Grade NC Application

Different nitrogen content in various formulations of Nitrocellulose provides numerous applications in other industries like paint, lacquers, plastics, pharmaceuticals, and explosives. Due to the mixed characteristics of AM-grade with A-grades and E-grades, applications are also typical in some cases. Some uses of ArChem AM-grade Nitrocellulose include:

  • Printing Inks
  • Leather Coatings
  • Staple Coatings
  • Film Coatings

  The selection of a suitable grade of nitrocellulose depends on the solvent and thermoplasticity. Our expert technical team in ArChem can help you select the right grade for your application.
