Nitrates-Continued Nitro carbo nitrate. For

loading and discharg. ing requirements see $ 146.22-40.

Composed principally of am.

monium nitrate. Involved in a fire will greatly

intensify the burning of many combustible materials and under conditions of exposure to high temperatures (above 400° F.) rapid decomposition and ignition may occur. Will

burn with esplosive violence. Soluble in water. Do not stow in the same hold

or compartment with combustible cargo, explosives (except that nitro carbo nitrate packaged in strong metal cans, metal or fiber drums, barrels, kegs, or wooden or fiberboard boxes with non-combustible inside containers may be stowed in a hold or compartment with a magazine containing dynamite, commercial boosters and/or other non-priming, non-initiating types of explosives which are compatible with dynamite) or acids and away from chlorates.
