Please note that there are price breaks per pound, the more that you get. Unless otherwise specified, the prices are, from left to right, the 1lb, 5lb, 10lb and 20 lb prices. See the Shipping Rates for more info. All the chemicals listed on this page (in blue) require a DOT-E-8249  Exemption box (see shipping rates for details)

The last thing listed behind the stock number is the hazardous class, if any, of the item. The Shipping class Legend follows. If any of these are listed after a chemical, that chemical is hazardous, but some of them may be shipped as a limited quantity with no hazmat. Those that can are as listed below in the color coding.

DW=Dangerous When Wet; SC=Spontaneously Combustible;
OX=Oxidizer; FS=Flammable Solid; FL=Flammable Liquid; PM=Poisonous Material;
CM=Corrosive Material; AG=Aerosol Gas; ORM=ORM-D (cannot be shipped with other hazmat items, but is not hazardous itself)

For our safety as well as yours, we ship everything according to regulations. The DOT has no sense of humor!

Color Coding:
Green - means that particular item is not considered hazardous. However, items that are listed as ORM-D CANNOT be shipped to other countries (no international shipping). E-mail us if you have a question on a partcular item. ORM-D's are not considered hazardous by ground service.
Orange - means the item is normally hazardous, but we can ship it without a hazmat fee (in 1LB quanities, up to 10LBs, at 1LB price)
Red - means that the item must be shipped hazardously, regardless of qty ordered.
Blue - require a DOT-E-8249 Exemption box and hazardous fees.

If you are placing an order with us online, you must be on file with us, regardless of what your first order is. This means that we have to have a signed in ink order form and a copy of your driver's license on file. If you do not have these things on file with us, it will just delay your order. You only have to do it once and then you can order whenever you would like. Go to our order form page to print out the order form there. Then you can use that to fill out and send in.

For the MSDS information buttons, please realize these may or may not be the same ones that come with your order. We have them included here for your convenience and they are pulled from the internet, not necessarily from the manufacturer that we get the material from.

Erythorbic Acid granular [C6H8O6] D-Araboascorbic acid, Erythorbate, Isoascorbic acid, E315 - Stock # C146EA
Melting point 164–172 °C (decomposes), acidity (pKa) 2.1, water soluble. Erythorbic acid is widely used as an antioxidant in processed foods and as a preservative in cured meats and frozen vegetables. In pyrotechnics, Erythorbic acid can be used to make explosives, propellants such as black powder substitutes, smokeless (black powder) substitutes, rocket propellants and cover smoke formulations. There are many patents for which it is used for these purposes.

2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate (EHA), Acrylic acid ester, [CH2=CHCOOC8H17] Acrylic monomer and plasticizer. Synonyms; Acrylic acid, 2-ethylhexy ester; Octyl Acrylate; 2-Propenoic acid, 2-ethylhexy ester; 1-Hexanol, 2-ethyl-, acrylate; 2-ethylhexyl 2-propenoate; 2-Ethylhexyl 2-propenoate; 2-Ethylhexanol acrylate; 2-Ethyl-1-hexyl acrylate; 2-Propenoic acid octyl ester; EHA; Ethyl hexyl acrylate; Octyl acrylate.  Stock # C1463
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).
