Oil & Gas

Used in the oil and gas exploration industry to oxidize rock matrix in preparation for micro-fossil analysis.

Water Treatment

Drinking water treatment – used for cleaning well water or other drinking water sources, by removing odours, organic materials that change the water taste

Wastewater treatment – strong oxidizer effective in controlling sulfide and organic-related odours in wastewater collection and treatment systems.

BOD and COD removal from wastewater – Hydrogen Peroxide decomposes to oxygen and water, adding dissolved oxygen to the system

Pollutants removal – one of the most versatile, dependable and environmentally compatible oxidizing agents. The relative safety and simplicity of its use as an oxidizing agent has led to the development of a number of applications in refinery wastewater systems


In the personal care industry, Hydrogen Peroxide has wide applications as an oxidizing and antimicrobial agent such as to increase brightness in teeth whitening processes. Other applications include the elimination of brown-black melanins to bleach hair during hair dyeing.

Hydrogen Peroxide is used widely in the production of LCD displays and are used in the manufacturing of semi-conductors and an etchant for printed circuit boards.

Hydrogen peroxide: a highly-versatile, ‘green’ commodity chemical

With the chemical formula H2O2, hydrogen peroxide was first discovered in 1818 by the French chemist, Louis Jacques Thénard. As an oxidising agent with high performance across a wide pH range, it is an extremely dynamic chemical with many, wide-ranging uses from household to industry.

From cleaning products to textile bleaching, teeth whitening products to water treatment, in agrochemicals to veterinary practice — the versatility of this clear, odourless liquid cannot be overstated. Depending on purpose, the potency of hydrogen peroxide will vary. 

Adding to the popularity of hydrogen peroxide are its sustainability credentials, particularly as an alternative for chlorine-based products. Hydrogen peroxide breaks down into its simple components — oxygen and water molecules.

If you are interested in more detailed product information, simply fill out a request for a H2O2 MSDS or get in touch through our website or by phoning 01535 637876.
