Peracetic Acid - Sanitizer, Disinfectant, Sterilant

The science of oxygenation is a quiet but powerful force, present in processes everywhere we look. As leading manufacturers and suppliers of hydrogen peroxide, our knowledge of oxygenation and oxidative chemistry is developed, backed and delivered by engineers, chemists, business people, and technicians with decades long accumulation of experience. A fundamental way to deliver oxygen, by organic peroxide, our peracetic acid is a liquid mix of hydrogen peroxide and acetic acid (vinegar) that brings to food processing, beverage packaging, and environmental and water treatment, a clean, beautiful set of solutions.

Peracetic acid is a versatile oxidizing agent that dissolves easily in water and decomposes into non-toxic by-products. PeroxyChem is one of the largest North American producers of peracetic acid and has developed a wide offering of high quality products, ranging in concentration from 5% to 35% peracetic acid in equilibrium solution.

The different concentrations are used in chemical synthesis, bleaching, sanitization, disinfection and sterilization across a variety of industries, including food and beverage, environmental remediation, industrial cleaning and sanitization, and oil and gas production. Peracetic acid formulations are registered for use as a sanitizer, disinfectant and sterilant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and as an antimicrobial agent by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
