RETROBRITE - Industrial Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
What Does "Industrial Grade" Mean?
Industrial grade refers to the purity and concentration of a substance that makes it suitable for industrial applications. It's a standard that ensures the product is of high quality, consistent, and reliable for its intended use. In the context of RETROBRITE, being an industrial grade hydrogen peroxide means it's formulated to deliver optimal performance for industrial and professional applications, ensuring efficacy, stability, and safety.
Harness the power and benefits of H2O2 RETROBRITE
As H2O2 decomposes, it releases a highly reactive oxygen atom. This atom plays a crucial role, either forming a stable oxygen molecule or binding with a nearby organic compound, which is the essence of how RETROBRITE proves advantageous.
H2O2, or hydrogen peroxide, is an unstable compound. When it breaks down, it creates a dynamic environment beneficial for various applications. RETROBRITE is designed to capture and utilize this property effectively.
For optimal results, dilute RETROBRITE at 2mL per litre.
Key Features of Industrial Grade Retrobrite
High Concentration: Contains Technical Grade Hydrogen Peroxide at a 29% concentration, ensuring potency and effectiveness.
Reactive Oxygen Release: Capitalizes on the reactivity of oxygen atoms resulting from H2O2 decomposition, maximizing the benefits it offers.
Safety First: H2O2 is potent and can be corrosive. It's essential to handle RETROBRITE with care, using protective gear like rubber gloves and eyewear.
Compliance & Integrity: RETROBRITE not only meets Transport Canada's stringent requirements but also aligns with Health Canada's regulations for labeling and packaging. At Future Harvest, we prioritize transparency and integrity, openly disclosing all ingredients in our products.
The Intricacies of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
Hydrogen peroxide, represented chemically as H2O2, is more than just a simple molecule. It's a compound that has intrigued scientists and industry professionals alike due to its unique characteristics and applications.
Chemical Structure: At its core, hydrogen peroxide is composed of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms. This structure is what gives it its potent oxidizing properties. The bond between the two oxygen atoms is relatively weak, making it prone to breaking and releasing an extra oxygen atom.
Decomposition: When exposed to light or certain catalysts, H2O2 decomposes into water (H2O) and oxygen (O2). This decomposition is an exothermic reaction, meaning it releases energy, often in the form of heat.
Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS): The oxygen released during the decomposition of H2O2 is highly reactive. These reactive oxygen species can interact with various organic and inorganic compounds. In the context of disinfection, these ROS can disrupt the cellular structures of bacteria, viruses, and fungi, rendering them harmless.
Safety and Stability: While hydrogen peroxide is a powerful compound, its stability can be influenced by factors like temperature, pH, and the presence of impurities. This is why it's often stored in dark containers and at cooler temperatures to prevent premature decomposition.
Environmental Impact: One of the reasons H2O2 is favored in many applications is its environmental footprint. Once it decomposes, it leaves behind only water and oxygen, making it an eco-friendly option compared to other chemical agents.
By understanding the science and behavior of hydrogen peroxide, one can better appreciate its value and potential in a myriad of applications, from healthcare to agriculture and beyond.
