Grupa Azoty Kędzierzyn

Granulated fertilizer, uniform granules, white to beige in colour. Covered with anti-caking agents which prevent permanent caking. Granules of 2-5 mm constitute not less than 95% of the mass. Bulk density: 0.98-1.0 kg/dm3.
ZAKsan® is made up of ammonium nitrate with the addition (filler) of dolomite powder, which contains calcium and magnesium.
Fertilizer includes 32% of nitrogen (N), including 16% of nitric and 16% of ammoniacal form.

Intended use and applicationSee more
ZAKsan® may be used as a universal nitrogen fertilizer for all cultivated plants: winter and spring crops, economic plants, root and fodder crops, on grassland and in cultivation of vegetables and fruit cultures, from spring until summer. In top dressing, when mixing with soil is not possible, apply on humid soil or before expected rainfall.
AdvantagesSee more
ZAKsan® includes the same volume of slow-release ammoniacal nitrogen and fast-release nitric nitrogen. Ammoniacal nitrogen is not washed out of the soil, is taken in by plants slowly, enhances plant rooting, supports intake of phosphorus and limits excess intake of potassium. Fast-release nitric nitrogen accelerates vegetation of plants soon after application of fertilizer, which means that in spring it accelerates the regeneration of plants following winter inactivation and contributes to the proper growth of plants when used before the phases of the highest demand.
 
With an equal volume of each form (ammoniacal and nitric), ZAKsan® is the most universal and effective nitrogenous fertilizer in our climatic conditions.
Packaging and transportSee more

ZAKsan® is packed in:

  • 500-1000 kg big-bag packaging,
  • other packaging and of different sizes ensuring fertiliser safety during storage, transport, handling and use sealed in a way or with the use of such device that each attempt of its opening results in irreversible damage to the closing, seal or packaging itself.

In case of exported fertiliser, the type and size of packaging is as agreed with the recipient. 
Packaging should meet the requirements of the RID and ADR provisions for packing group III.

ZAKsan® in unit packaging should be transported with any covered means of transportation. Means of transportation should be clean, dry and tight and their condition should not cause any damage to packaging. The vehicles and containers should be constructed in a way to prevent any contact between transported fertiliser with flammable materials and chemical compounds that may potentially react with fertiliser. In case the floor or walls of the vehicle are made of wood or flammable materials, these should be covered with impermeable and non-flammable lining or secured with non-flammable impregnating agent e.g. sodium silicate solution (water glass).

Transport in bulk on vehicles meeting the requirements of RID/ ADR regulations is allowed, including special conditions:

  • carriage in bulk is permitted in vehicles/wagons covered with a sheet, containers covered with a sheet or bulk containers covered with a sheet;
  • carriage in bulk is allowed in closed vehicles/wagons, closed containers or containers for closed bulk transport;
  • if the vehicle/wagon or container is made of wood or other combustible material, an impermeable surfacing resistant to combustion or a coating of sodium silicate or similar substance shall be provided; sheeting also be impermeable and non-combustibile;
  • carriage in bulk shall only be as a full load.

ZAKsan® is a hazardous good, class 5.1, packing group III, according to RID and ADR transport provisions. Pursuant to the ADR provisions - vehicles - orange warning plates on the front and back of the vehicle/RID cars - orange warning plates on both sidewalls of the car.

With regard to transportation using the road vehicles of the recipient or of a carrier acting on the direct instructions of the recipient, it is the recipient or the carrier who is responsible for any deterioration in the quality of the fertilizer.
StorageSee more
ZAKsan® is a highly hygroscopic product and should be stored in clean and dry warehouse buildings with non-flammable floors ensuring good insulation against moisture.
 
ZAKsan® should be protected against:
  • Water and rainfall;
  • Direct sunlight;
  • Mechanical damage to packages;
  • Heating above 30°C.
The distance of packed fertilizer from the walls should be at least 20 cm, and from sources of heat at least 150 cm. Damaged bags should be stored separately. Non-compliance with the above rules may affect the quality and cause uncontrolled decomposition of fertiliser. Handling and storage of more than 1250 Mg of ammonium nitrate in an establishment classifies a given entity as the major accident hazard lower-tier establishment and above 5000 Mg as major accident hazard higher-tier establishment - Table 2 (see explanation No 14 to the Table) to the Ordinance of the Minister of Development of 29 January 2016 (Journal of Laws, item 138).
 
In the immediate vicinity of ZAKsan® should be placed no chemical compounds and materials which may react with it, such as plant protection products, fertilizers with chlorides, organic substances, highly alkaline substances (for example soda lye), lime, cement, powdered metals, metal oxides, acids and flammable materials like coal, wood, sawdust, lubricants, oils, engine fuels and straw. Agricultural employers cannot store ZAKsan® with other fertilisers. ZAKsan® should not be stored in bulk. 
 
ZAKsan® must not be stored in an open space owing to its low resistance to temperature changes and the impact of moisture and heat.
 
Inside warehouse premises, smoking and the use of open flame is forbidden, while electrical wires should be sufficiently protected against shorting.
 
Fertilizer in flexible containers of less than 500 kg in weight may be stored in piles of up to two layers, and in one layer if weight exceeds 500 kg. 
PrecautionsSee more

In the event of irritation of skin and eyes, wash with plenty of water. Dust masks and safety goggles are recommended. If swallowed accidentally, seek medical advice. Nontoxic, odourless, non-flammable fertilizer.
