Basic component of single base powders is nitrocellulose (90-98%). On their production, various additives are used as chemical stabilizers, compounds for surface treatment, muzzle flash reducing compounds and burning modifiers. Powder grains can have a form of cylinders, tubes, flakes, discs or multi perforated cylinders. Many of these powders are surface treated using compounds serving to achieve better burning parameters. Single base powders are used for small arms ammunition, guns, mortars, canons, howitzers and in other special applications in various industrial branches.
