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

Hard Surface Cleaners

DuPont™ Glycolic Acid is the organic acid of choice for cleaning unmovable surfaces, like ceramic tile, grout, tubs, sinks, toilet bowls, shower doors and stalls.  With a low pKa and molecular weight, it makes short work of soap scum and mineral scales, removing soil thoroughly.

Alone or blended, Glycolic Acid is the premier builder for all bathroom and kitchen acid-based cleaners and detergents.  It is much easier to formulate with than mineral acids, due to greater compatibility with a wider range of ingredients such as surfactants, biocidal agents, corrosion inhibitors, fragrances and dyes.
