Chemours Glycolic Acid Technical Grade, 70% Solution is the only domestically produced hydroxyacetic acid. Chemours Glycolic Acid Technical Grade, 70% is the standard technical grade used across varied industries.
Chemours Glycolic Acid is the smallest alpha hydroxycarboxylic acid. Glycolic Acid has dual functional groups of OH and the COOH. These groups result in Chemours Glycolic Acid being an effective low pH acid while also functioning as an excellent de-scaling and chelating agent. These dual functionality groups coupled with the small molecular size of Chemours Glycolic Acid allows for high penetration and efficacy across industries and applications. In addition, Chemours Glycolic Acid is preferred to other strong mineral and organic acids due to Chemours Glycolic Acid's environmental profile.
