HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 50% TECHNICAL SOLUTION FOR LAUNDRY BLEACHING
1. Reduction in processing time.
2. The most cost effective bleach available.
3. Safe and effective for all fabric types.
4. Reduces sorting time as coloureds can be processed with whites.
5. Minimal effect on tensile strength of fabrics.
6. Reduction in rewash.
7. Non-polluting – simplifies waste water control.
PROPERTIES Hydrogen Peroxide is a clear, odourless, waterlike liquid. It is non-flammable and miscible in all proportions with water. Hydrogen Peroxide is stable for long periods of storage. Hydrogen Peroxide is an extremely powerful bactericide. Hydrogen Peroxide oxidises medicine stains more effectively than chlorine bleaches, and removes many stains, e.g. Hibitane, which are otherwise set by chlorine bleaches. Hydrogen Peroxide bleaching has proved to be less than half the cost of organic chlorine bleaches.
METHOD OF USE Batch Process Best results are achieved by adding Hydrogen Peroxide to the main detergent wash. The temperature of the wash solution should be as hot as possible to eliminate a separate bleach stage – minimum temperature 180°F. Continuous Process Hydrogen Peroxide should be metered into the machine prior to the zone of highest temperature and alkalinity for optimum results.
USE RATE For normally soiled work, it is suggested that a dose rate of 35 mls. (1 fl.oz.) per 100 lb. dry weight linen (80 mls. per 100 kg.) be used.
STOCK SOLUTION ADDITION
Most operators find the preferred method of addition is to prepare a stock solution of Hydrogen Peroxide by diluting the 50% concentrate with water, e.g. 1.5 litres H2O2 50% to 50 litres water.
Dosage: 2 litres solution per 100 lbs dry load line.
Stronger solutions can be prepared to suit individual plants.
Your Tasman Territory Manager can advise the most suitable dilution for your plant.
Hydrogen Peroxide bleaching is revolutionising traditional attitudes to laundering and the Hospital, Institutional and Commercial launderers who have adopted Peroxide as their major bleach add testimony to its superior performance. A trial wash in your plant will determine its suitability for your operation.
