Sodium Nitrate

Sodium nitrate serves as auxiliary in many applications. For example, it is used for the production of explosives, anticorrosive agents, and as a concrete additive or in fertilizers containing nitrogen. Despite being one of the oldest BASF products, sodium nitrate is also used in new and innovative applications. Thanks to its outstanding heat storage properties, sodium nitrate is ideal for solar thermal plants. BASF provides sodium nitrate in various grades, all meeting the unique performance of on purpose, synthetically-produced sodium nitrate.

Sodium Nitrite

Sodium nitrite is used for the production of diazo compounds and as a component of hydronic salts. Furthermore, sodium nitrite is an important basic material for the dyeing of textiles and is used in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and metal industry. BASF provides sodium nitrite in various grades, all meeting highest standards regarding quality and purity.

BASF's free flowing food grade product contains an anti-caking agent. This additive makes it is easier to make the exact concentration for preserving meat and sausage products with pickle-salt.
