Nitroglycerins/Explosives Standards

Sigma-Aldrich's Cerilliant maintains a U.S. ATFE license for the manufacture of explosive materials. According to US Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations, these products are normally classified as Class 1 explosives, regardless of concentration, and legal shipment of these materials is highly regulated and restricted. Increasing homeland security measures are further restricting legal shipment of these materials increasing the cost and time required for delivery. To improve availability and reduce shipping costs for our customers, Cerilliant spent significant time and resources to obtain DOT exemptions for most of our solution based explosive standards allowing us to legally ship our products in categories other than Explosives. These exemptions apply only to Cerilliant products and cannot be relied upon by any other manufacturer.
