Sodium Percarbonate is produced industrially by crystallization of a solution of sodium carbonate and hydrogen peroxide, with proper control of the pH and concentrations.
As an oxidizing agent, Sodium Percarbonate is an ingredient in a number of home and laundry cleaning products, including non-chlorine bleach products such as our Oxy Bleach.
Many commercial products mix a percentage of Sodium Percarbonate with sodium carbonate. The average percentage of an “Oxy” product in the supermarket is 65% Sodium Percarbonate and 35% sodium carbonate. The “ultra boosters” seen on infomercials may contain as much as 80% Sodium Percarbonate. However, Sodium Percarbonate is less expensive in its pure form and can be adjusted to any percentage the user desires.
