Peroxide Forming Chemicals

Peroxidizable Chemicals can react with the ambient air to form peroxides if they are stored for long periods of time.  Peroxides, if not handled properly, can explode with impact, heat, or friction.  Date peroxide forming chemicals when you receive/open the container and dispose of the chemical if stored beyond expiration to prevent peroxide formation.  Do not open any container which has solid formation around the lid.  EHS will remove any peroxides stored beyond expiration
