Peracetic Acid


Peracetic acid must be stored in its original container in an upright position on an acid-proof floor.


Storage conditions require areas with good ventilation, cool temperature and protection from direct sunlight. Any contamination, especially with metal ions, alkalis and reducing agents must be avoided. Keep away from sources of heat and ignition.

Packages are equipped with venting devices to avoid overpressure. Do not cover closures to allow venting. All containers should be checked regularly. The service life of plastic containers with high strength peracetic acid is limited to 12 months.

Applicable storage regulations for each country must be followed (for example, BGV B4 in Germany, CPR 3E in the Netherlands or HSE CS21 in the UK).
