Ixper® is the trade name given to the inorganic peroxides made by Solvay.
The main products are Calcium peroxide and Magnesium peroxide. These inorganic peroxides are fine powders that are very insoluble. In the presence of water at their natural pHs, these products decompose to release oxygen.
As the pH drops, these products become more soluble and generate progressively higher ratios of hydrogen peroxide (active oxygen) to gaseous oxygen. Under acidic conditions, the available oxygen can be liberated within minutes.
Depending on the pH-value, Ixper® shows two characteristics functions:
- at its natural pH value: Slow release of Oxygen
- at lower pH value: Release of H2O2
It is these characteristics that give rise to the wide range of niche applications
