Your Safety, Our Priority

Safety: Our top priority

AkzoNobel is recognized as a global leader in organic peroxide and metal alkyl safety. Our proven success in safely handling hazardous materials is due to our long-term commitment to safety. We always place safety as our top priority. Our products have been handled safely on a commercial scale for many years despite the hazards associated with their reactivity. These hazards are manageable given knowledge of proper handling techniques, carefully designed facilities and thorough training of personnel.

Unique safety research laboratory 

Safe handling and storage of organic peroxides and metal alkyls is only possible if the specific properties for these products are known. For this reason, AkzoNobel has a unique research facility in Deventer, the Netherlands, where we perform extensive safety studies. By testing and knowing the properties we can develop safer products and innovative packaging.
