Transport

For transportation the respective modal dangerous goods (hazardous materials) regulation apply, which are based on the UN Recommendations TDG. According to the respective product specification, different dangerous goods (hazmat) classifications apply, which can be found in the following table.

Hydrogen peroxide of a concentration of less than 8 percent by weight is not subject to any transport regulations. For concentrations 8 percent and above by wt., the following classifications apply:

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE EUROPE

Concentration of H2O2

Shipping Name and description

ADR/RID/ADN, IMDG code, CFR 49

8% to <20% by wt.

Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous solution (stabilized as necessary)

5.1, UN 2984, PG. III

20% to ≤60% by wt.

Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous solution (stabilized as necessary)

5.1, (8) , UN 2014, PG. II

>60% by wt.

Hydrogen, peroxide, stabilized

5.1, (8), UN 2015, PG. I

Air transportation 

Concentration of H2O2
ICAO-TI, IATA-DGR
>8% to <20% by wt.
5.1, UN 2984, PG. III *)
20% to 40% by wt.

5.1, (8), UN 2014, PG. II *)

>40% by wt.
prohibited

*) For packaging to be shipped by air hermetically closure is mandatory. Considering that hydrogen peroxide steadily emits oxygen, enough ullage must be left in the packagings in order to prevent bursting. Ask the Evonik experts for more info/details about an internal Evonik procedure to ship hydrogen peroxide by air safely.
National regulations may differ from one country to another, and are being revised continuously. Customers who want to transport hydrogen peroxide within particular national boundaries should refer to the applicable national regulations.
