Glycolic acid is a top-quality organic acid manufactured by the Chemours company for a variety of uses in consumer and industrial applications. Glycolic acid tech grade is an excellent choice for metal finishing and surface treatment applications due to its low corrosivity and dual functionality to act as an acid and alcohol to remove rust, scale, and oxidation deposits off metal surfaces.
Glycolic-based acid formulations are widely used in the cleaning and descaling of industrial equipment, stainless steel boilers, heat exchangers, and many other industrial metal parts processes.
Glycolic acid 70% technical grade provides exceptional performance and unique properties for metal finishing and cleaning applications. It is safer to use on sensitive metals such as aluminum and copper, making it a great alternative to strong acids and inorganic descalers such as hydrochloric acid and phosphoric acid. It also offers improved performance over organic acids such as oxalic acid and citric acid in metal finishing and cleaning applications.
