What is Lead Nitrate and How to Buy Lead Nitrate
What is Lead Nitrate (Lead Dinitrate, Plumbous Nitrate, Lead (ii) Nitrate)?
Lead Nitrate is used in the manufacturing of special explosives such as lead azide, to create pigments in lead paints, the manufacturing of matches and for dying and printing calico and other textiles. Lead Nitrate has recently been used as a heat stabilizer in polyesters and nylon, as a coating of photo thermographic paper, improve gold leaching speeds and rodenticides chemicals. Lead Nitrate occurs as a colourless crystal or white powder.

Lead Nitrate Uses
There are various forms of Lead Nitrate, and the usage of the chemical depends on its form. Manufacturers use Lead Nitrate worldwide:
To stabilize the heat in nylon and polyesters
Lead Nitrate is used to stabilize the heat in nylon and polyesters. This is done to prevent degradation. This purpose of adding Lead Nitrate nylon and polyesters is to ensure safe processing measures and to protect products against ageing and weathering.
To improve gold leaching speed and quantity recovered
Lead Nitrate is used to speed up the gold cyanidation process by improving the extraction rate. This is done by adding Lead Nitrate to the solution and creating a synergic effect which results in an increase in dissolution rates in gold and cyanide solutions.
To coat photo thermographic paper
Lead Nitrate can be used to coat photo thermographic paper, it is applied to make the surface of the photograph sensitive to a UV light. It also helps to create a professional glossy looking image.
Is Lead Nitrate Safe?
Consuming and interacting with Lead Nitrate is widely considered to be unsafe. It is a strong oxidizer and contact with other materials may cause fire.

To store the product, do not store near combustible materials and chemicals. Keep away from reducing agents.
How is Lead Nitrate Made?
In factories, Lead Nitrate is formed from the reaction between lead (ii) oxide with concentrated nitric acid. Lead Nitrate can alternatively be made by the evaporation process of the solution created by reacting metallic lead with dilute nitric acid.
