More Information

What is Peracetic Acid?

Peracetic acid (peroxyacetic acid or PAA) is an organic compound used as an eco-friendly spray sanitizer for fruit, vegetables and poultry. It also has uses as a disinfectant for biofilm removal, water tower treatment and sanitation in breweries and wineries. It is also a preferred sanitizing agent in some segments of the food industry including organic produce and poultry.

It is relatively unaffected by water hardness which means it can be diluted with regular tap water and has a better germicidal response than chlorine bleach (sodium hypochlorite). It is highly effective against Gram negative bacteria and moderately effective against Gram positive bacteria.

Instructions/Safety

How to Use Peracetic Acid Test Strips?

Instructions for peracetic acid test strip use is the same regardless of concentration range.
  1. Remove test strip from vial.
  2. Dip pad end in bleach solution
  3. Remove and compare to color chart. Times vary-see strip label for details.

How to Dilute Peracetic Acid

Peracetic acid test strips can accurately indicate concentrations from 5 to 3000ppm.

Use our hydrogen peroxide dilution calculator to take the guesswork out of making up sanitizer solutions.

Simply enter:

  1. Strength of your peracetic acid (%)
  2. Strength you want after dilution (ppm)
  3. How much you need to prepare (litres, mL, quarts, cups)
  4. Press "Calculate"
It will tell you how much undiluted peracetic peroxide to mix with water. Confirm your solution is in the correct range with the appropriate Indigo™ test strip.

You can also prepare calibration solutions for your test strips to confirm they can still be used past their expiration date. Do this only with freshly opened concentrates. You may find one of our graduated cylinders & graduated medicine droppers useful for this.
