So, what is nitrocellulose?

Nitrocellulose is a highly flammable compound made by nitration of cellulose using a mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acid. It is commonly used in the production of lacquers, varnishes, and as a binding agent in the manufacture of automobile airbags. Nitrocellulose has excellent adhesion properties and dries quickly, making it ideal for use in coatings and finishes. However, due to its volatile nature, strict safety precautions must be taken during its handling and storage. In the food industry, nitrocellulose is used as a stabilizer and thickener in products such as ice cream and whipped cream.
