How much pressure can a hydrogen peroxide bottle hold? Answered

For a project I am working on I need to know how much pressure can be safely stored in one of those brown 1 litre bottles that the normal 3% H2O2 solution comes in. It doesn't matter when the lid would pop off because that will be glued on.

Hardly anything: they aren't designed for it.

Would it be more or less than a 1 litre pop bottle?

Thanks, that gives an idea of how strong pop bottles are. Those bottles are made of polyester though, the hydrogen peroxide ones are HDPE.

Yeah but I never said what "it" was. I went ahead and used them anyway because they were the best thing available and they can hold more pressure than the hot glue I used to attatch some fittings to them.
