Glycolic Acid for Household and Industrial Use

A Versatile Acid

Glycolic acid (also known as hydroxyacetic acid) combines a unique set of properties that enables its use across a broad range of applications. Many of these properties depend on glycolic acid's  very high affinity for calcium and manganese ions.

Glycolic acid enhances cleaning products and increases the efficacy of the cleaning solution's other ingredients. Offering relatively low corrosion rates with extremely low volatility and excellent ability to cut through hard water salts and scales, glycolic acid is:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Biodegradable
  • Able to clean many surfaces, including concrete, mortar, and various metal
  • Readily rinsable
  • Completely dilutable
  • Compatible with many formulation components
