98% Hydrogen Peroxide – HTP

1 Description

Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) HTP grade with a concentration of up to 98% is ideal for customers who value ease of use, cost of operation and concern for the environment. Hydrogen peroxide is very simple to use and store. There is no need to keep it in bottles at low temperature, just containers at room temperature. The whole process of handling from storage through application does not require specialized equipment and restrictive safety measures that generate significant costs. Only plastic protective clothing is needed for handling. Hydrogen peroxide decomposes into water and oxygen, so it is friendly for the environment and personnel. It is the second strongest oxidant after liquid oxygen.

Hydrogen Peroxide HTP is ideal for rocket industry. It is the only substance which has in itself the features of being both a propellant and an oxidizer. Due to this property it can be used as an oxidizer for satellite correction engines or as a propellant for gas generators used in auxiliary power units (APU).
