What is Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is most suitable for industrial purposes and is used extensively for pulp and paper, mining, textile and environmental applications. It is a natural anti-septic typically found in the average household medicine cabinet used to clean wounds to prevent infection. It is formulated for high stability and long-term storage with strong oxidizing properties and is therefore a powerful bleaching agent that is mostly used for bleaching paper.
