FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate is an addition compound of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide. This granular product provides a stable source of alkaline hydrogen peroxide which is environmentally friendly and easy to use. FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate has an active available oxygen content which is equivalent to 27.5% H2O2. FB® 400C is a stabilized sodium percarbonate, with a nominal 6% coating. FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate offers many of the same functional benefits as liquid hydrogen peroxide. As an oxidant, FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate provides powerful cleaning, bleaching, stain removal and deodorizing capabilities. These attributes make FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate a product that is environmentally benign because its products of decomposition are water, oxygen and sodium carbonate (soda ash). FB® 400C Sodium Percarbonate has a wide range of applications including use in heavy-duty laundry detergents, allfabric bleaches, wood-deck bleaches, textile bleaches and carpet cleaners. It is used in a number of general cleaning products in the institutional and industrial marketplace. The product also has use in personal care formulations, denture cleaners, and certain food-bleaching applications.
