*) For packaging to be shipped by air hermetically closure is mandatory. Considering that hydrogen peroxide steadily emits oxygen, enough ullage must be left in the packagings in order to prevent bursting. Ask the Evonik experts for more info/details about an internal Evonik procedure to ship hydrogen peroxide by air safely.

National regulations may differ from one country to another, and are being revised continuously. Customers who want to transport hydrogen peroxide within particular national boundaries should refer to the applicable national regulations.
