USES: Aminoguanidine Bicarbonate is a starting compound for the manufacture of the explosive tetracene, which finds wide applications in primer compositions and explosive rivets. It is also an intermediate in the manufacturing of selective weed killers (3-amino-1,2,4-triazole). Since aminoguanidine bicarbonate has good selective reducing properties it has been used by the dye, pharmaceutical and photographic industries. When combined with phosphoric acid forms a complex that can act as a flame retardant in fibrous cellulose and protein materials.

HANDLING:Avoid contact with skin and avoid ingestion. Use dust respirator when handling. Since no exposure limit have been established for aminoguanidine bicarbonate by OSHA & ACGIH, we recommend that our product should be treated as a nuisance dust 15 mg/m3. Product must be stored below 30 ° C(85 ° >F) to reduce the risk of decomposition and discoloration. See SDS for more information.
