If you are placing an order with us online, you must be on file with us, regardless of what your first order is. This means that we have to have a signed in ink order form and a copy of your driver's license on file. If you do not have these things on file with us, it will just delay your order.

Laboratory uses include extemporaneous preparation of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) where it is dissolved in water (2.5 parts water) to yield 34-35% H2O2. Used extensively as a disinfecting and bleaching agent in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals and in drugs. Both hydrogen peroxide and urea are used as fertilizers and thus, so is UHP. USPTO # 5079868 lists information on using UHP in pesticides, fungicides and bactericides (killing bacteria, fungi, viruses, mites, insects, and other pests) and as a spray to keep crops and fruit from frost damage. Firefox is actively testing UHP for an alternative to conventional oxidizers for pyrotechnic and propellants manufacturing. Dissolves readily in water.

Example; a mixture of 10% Magnesium and 90% barium peroxide is near completely stable in air and storage @ 90% relative humidity. It is also highly favored in metal forming as an extruding lubricant. It is lightly coated on metal pieces before placing in an extruding press to form into various shapes,  cylinders, plate forming, etc.. Also used as a dusting agent applied to plastic molds as a mold release agent, and as a weatherproofing agent for concrete, rock wool, paper and textiles. Soluble in benzene.
