SILVER HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

PERACETIC ACID

Peracetic Acid is an oxidizing agent broadly used as a disinfectant against microbes like bacteria, fungi, and viruses in food, breweries, wineries and medical industry, as a bleaching agent & slimicide in the paper and textile industries, as a polymerization catalyst or co-catalyst in polymer industries, epoxidation reagent for olefins and unsaturated compounds, etching circuit boards, in the synthesis of other chemicals & as cooling tower water disinfectant (it effectively prevents bio-film formation and controls Legionella bacteria).


ACURO's Peracetic Acid is sold under the brand name ACUROX. This class of oxidizing agent is available up to 40% concentration. It disintegrates into a non-toxic and water soluble by-products.


It is frequently used for the synthesis of organic S-oxides in the pharmaceutical industry and in the manufacture of cephalosporins antibiotics from penicillins. Also, it is used to manufacture other chemicals and intermediates used in chemical industries.


FEATURES OF PERACETIC ACID :

  • Excellent microbiocidal activity.
  • Non-corroding & non-foaming at normal dilutions.
  • Wide temperature (34°F) and pH (up to 8.5) range.
  • More effective than chlorine or quaternary amines in sanitization.
  • Excellent disinfectant for cold plant operations.
  • Easily disinfects at cold temperature.
  • Degradable and eco-friendly (no chlorinated by-product).
  • Rinsing after use not required.
  • Quick results.
