Sodium PeroxideSodium Peroxide (Na2O2) is a yellow-white granular solid that reacts to water and is a strong oxidizing agent; large amounts may react explosively. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Sodium Peroxide. That’s why we suggest one of the following: DRUMLoc, SUPERLoc
