Guidelines for Handling Organic Peroxides

» Read MSDS of peroxide before handling.
» Handle with care, do not let packages fall from pallets.
» Keep the peroxides in their specified storage and make sure that they are stored between min and max storage temperatures.
» Stow the packages or pallets in original form.
» Take only the required quantity.
» Do not put any unused peroxide back to its package.
» Do not put any item into the package in order to avoid contamination.
» Do not allow peroxides to contact iron or compounds of iron, cobalt, or copper, metal oxide salts, acids or bases, or acetone.
» Do not put any metal item in contact with peroxides unless metal is passivated.( For passivation procedures you can contact us)
» Do not allow open flames, other sources of heat or sparks, friction, grinding or forms of impact near peroxides.
» During pumping, make sure static electricity is safely grounded.
» Beware of all abnormalities. If you feel some smell, a spill on the ground or temperature failure immediately take action.
» Clean up spills up immediately. Keep spills of solid peroxides wet with water. For liquid peroxides absorb the spill with sodium carbonate, sand or vermiculite. Dispose promptly as hazardous waste.
» Whenever suitable for the process, reduce the sensitivity of peroxides to heat and shock by dilution with inert solvents (e.g. aliphatic hydrocarbons).
» Avoid using solutions of peroxides in volatile solvents. Solvent evaporation should be controlled to avoid dangerous concentration of the peroxide.
» Protect from heat.
» Prevent exposure to sunlight.
» Store peroxides at the lowest possible temperature consistent with their solubility and freezing point.
» Use peroxides with “first in first out ” principal.
» Keep the packages closed.
» Check the temperature and cleanness of storage area periodically.
» CAUTION: Do not store liquid or solutions of peroxides at a temperature below that at which the peroxide freezes or precipitates.
