Peracetic acid products have oxidizing and corrosive properties. Safety precautions have to be applied accordingly. Concentrations higher than 25 percent PAA are harmful to the environment.
While working with peracetic acid products, proper care must always be taken. Safety goggles, protective gloves and suitable protective clothing must be worn. If necessary, a gas mask should be used with an appropriate filter.
If peracetic acid comes into contact with skin and eyes, it must be rinsed off thoroughly with plenty of water. In any case get medical attention.
If a product is spilled during processing, it must be absorbed with inert material or diluted immediately with a large amount of water and washed away. In case of fire use water or foam.
Only use clean equipment made from compatible materials like polyethylene, glass or stainless steel. Products must not be confined in containers, vessels, piping systems or between valves. There must always be a pressure release or breathing device. Product once drawn from the original container should never be returned due to a risk of contamination and decomposition.
PERACLEAN®, DEGACLEAN® and CLARMARIN® are biocides. Use biocides safely.
Always read labels, MSDS and product information before use.
