Cellulose Nitrate

Neucel N91 and N94

Nitrocellulose is responsible for many changes in the industrial arts and sciences. The use of the cellulose nitrate as a propellant was the first major break through from the traditional use of black powder, which had proceeded without change for centuries. The next major step in the history of nitrocellulose was the development of celluloid. Prior to the introduction of this synthetic plastic, some moulding had been done with thermoplastic natural resins such as shellac, but the art of moulding and fabricating plastic compositions for practical purposes dates from the discovery of celluloid. Protective surface coatings made little progress and were all essentially oil or natural resin or oleo resinous compositions until the invention of nitrocellulose lacquer.
