60 LBS!!
They cost only a few dollars more but can hold twice as much as our 30 lb boxes which saves one of the $27.50 hazmat charges incurred when shipping two boxes.

We can mix up to 3 different oxidizers in a hazmat pack with a total of 30 lbs per box to shave you shipping. KCLO3, KCLO4 and AP packaged in bulk 5 lb or larger tubs must be shipped as a hazmat item and as such cannot be sent by mail. In 1 lb packages (@ the 1 lb price) they are not hazardous and can be sent as an ORM-D by UPS or by mail. Unless otherwise specified, we send most chemical ORM-D's by USPS (domestic mail).


Most of these bulk materials must be shipped by motor freight. You may also add other items you need with them to save money on shipping. We can offer up to a 60% to 70% discount on motor freight shipping by UPS Freight, Fed Ex Freight or USF reddaway.


    Aluminum Roof Coating/Sealant, for sealing metal or wood roofs and vents. Stock # C104ARC

This is the roof sealant used to seal metal roofs on mobile homes and out buildings or barns, sealing around air conditioning units and vents, etc.. It can be rolled on like a thick paint or mopped on and adheres to most any surface including wood, shingles, cement, metals, asphalt, rubber, plastics, glass, etc..

Acrylic acid
is the simplest unsaturated carboxylic acid which has double bond and carboxyl group in C3 one molecule with the formula CH2=CHCOOH. The vinyl group is attached to the carbonyl carbon directly. The systemic name is 2-propenoic acid. Acrylic acid has two reaction points or functional groups required for polymerization process. Purified (glacial) acrylic acid is a clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic acrid odor (Acidity (pKa) 4.35). It is miscible with water, but soluble in ether and alcohol. Acrylic acid undergoes the typical reactions of a carboxylic acid and forms acrylic esters - basic alkyl esters are methyl, butyl, ethyl acrylate, and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate. Acrylic acid and its esters undergo the reactions of the double bond which readily combine with themselves or other monomers (e.g with methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleic acid esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, unsaturated polyesters and drying oils, etc.) to form homopolymers or co-polymers which are used in the production of propellant binders/elastomers, coatings, adhesives, caulks, elastomers, super absorbent polymers, flocculants, as well as fibres and plastics. Acrylate polymers show a wide range of properties dependent on the type of the monomers and reaction conditions. Due to its low volatile nature plus reactivity of double bonds, it is also the perfect choice for plasticising many applications. Commonly used with a monomer containing reactive cure sites selected from the group consisting of hydroxyl groups (HTPB), glycidyl groups, carboxylic acid groups (CTPB), and unsaturated cure sites is incorporated into a rubbery polymer (R-45 polybutadiene/HTPB, PBAN/CTPB, Polyester F17-80/CTPB and HC434 resins/CTPB).

Magnesium, MRE / FRH Mix [MgFe] Stock # CMGMRE - FS

Wikipedia; A flameless ration heater, or FRH, is a water-activated exothermic chemical heater included with Meals, Ready-to-Eat (MRE), used to heat the food. Us military specifications for the heater required that it be capable of raising the temperature of an 8 oz (226.8 g) entree by 100 °F (56 °C) in twelve minutes, and that it has no visible flame. The ration heater contains finely powdered magnesium metal, alloyed with a small amount of iron, and table salt. To activate the reaction, a small amount of water is added, and the boiling point of water is quickly reached and maintained as the reaction proceeds.
When the MRE's are out of date, the heater material is removed and the food is discarded. The FRH mixture (magnesium metal, alloyed with a small amount of iron, and table salt) is emptied into drums for destruction. We get it before it goes to the incinerator. This like new material can still be used to heat rations, canned foods, liquids, use it in the workshop projects, and just about anything else....use your imagination! No ATFE permit is required to purchase. We have five drums @ 100 lbs net each.

Nitroguanidine, (NG) wetted with 20% water, Picrite [CH4N4O2] Stock # C163NG

Crystalline solid in water, mainly used to manufacture propellants, notably triple base smokeless propellants. It has also found application in modern smokeless or low smoke pyrotechnic formulations and as an additive to modify burn rates. Nitroguanidine reduces the propellants flame and flash temps without sacrificing chamber pressures. Relatively of low sensitivity, used as an explosive, it is only detonated with a blasting cap and/or booster explosive and has high detonation velocity. It can also be found in insecticides, having a comparable effect to nicotine. Slightly soluble in alcohol. Although shipped as a flammable solid, according to DOT regulations, wet nitroguanidine is considered an explosive and must be stored in an approved explosives magazine. An ATFE is required to purchase nitroguanidine. Hazmat shipping is also required for any quantity.
