The preform is decontaminated with hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) before being heated in the oven, which activates the H2O2 from the existing preform-heating stage and achieves a high level of decontamination. This results in a reduced risk of peroxide residue remaining within the preform. The same dry decontamination technology is applied for caps with Capdis™.
