DuPont Glycolic Acid has a variety of industrial and personal care applications

Dairy & Food Equipment Cleaner Applications

Particularly effective at dissolving casein, the milk protein found in milk stone, DuPont™ Glycolic Acid also helps decrease process downtime by dissolving calcium carbonate and iron oxide scales faster than phosphoric acid.  The resulting salts are highly water soluble versus insoluble phosphates.

Essentially chloride free, Glycolic Acid is readily biodegradable, non-volatile and will not cause stainless steel stress-cracking associated with hydrochloric acid.  It is classified as an “A3” acid cleaner by the USDA and is approved under the meat, poultry, shell egg grading and egg products inspection program.
