Sodium carbonate peroxide

Chemical Formula: 2Na2CO3 3H2O2


Peroxy sodium carbonate,
Sodium percarbonate


White granules.


Sodium carbonate peroxide breaks down into sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide acts as a bleach, and as an anti-microbial agent. The high alkalinity of the sodium carbonate boosts the bleaching effect of hydrogen peroxide.
