Hydrite, an integrated manufacturer and supplier of chemicals and related services, is pleased to announce its investment in a food-grade, state-of-the-art facility for peracetic acid (PAA) production in Waterloo, Iowa.

The new facility will allow Hydrite to produce a variety of concentrations of PAA that leave no residue. PAA is an essential product to the sanitation industry and the preferred product choice of customers. PAA is commonly used in the sanitation industry as a disinfectant and cleaner with a variety of applications.

Hydrite’s unique formulations of PAA serve multiple markets and have multiple applications. The primary PAA markets are food sanitation and intervention chemistry for processing meat, poultry, and fish.  Additionally, PAA has applications for processing vegetables and fruits as well as other non-food applications such as water treatment, healthcare, general industrial, and oil & gas.

Hydrite is a full-service supplier of PAA and actively works to secure and obtain regulatory approvals including USDA, FDA, EPA and FCNs (Food Contact Notifications).  Hydrite works diligently to expand its product portfolio to produce unique formulations.

Hydrite provides fully integrated lab services designed to help solve the toughest formulation issues and provide professional reports detailing the results and solution recommendations.
