Peracetic acid 35%
Peracetic acid (PAA) is a strong oxidizing agent that is commonly used as a disinfectant and sterilant in various industries,
including food and beverage processing, healthcare, and water treatment.
It is a clear, colorless liquid with a pungent odor and is highly reactive due to the presence of a peroxide group. Peracetic acid is an effective antimicrobial agent and is capable of killing a wide range of microorganisms,
including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores.
It is also used as a sanitizer in the food industry to remove contaminants from surfaces, equipment, and food products. However, peracetic acid can be hazardous if not handled properly, and exposure to high concentrations can cause irritation and damage to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
Therefore, it is essential to follow appropriate safety precautions when working with peracetic acid.
