Laundry Sour Applications

DuPont™ Glycolic Acid is the dependable, flexible liquid sour required by modern laundry systems.  It provides far greater solubility than silicafluorides or hydrofluosilicic acid, permitting higher concentrations for greater neutralizing efficiency, with no salting or rust discoloration problems.

Glycolic Acid reaches a final pH level of 5-6 much more quickly than silicafluorides, especially at lower wash temperatures.  Lower toxicity means no damage to fabric, even when ironed wet.  Glycolic Acid liquid won’t cake in storage and is easier to measure when using automatic dispensing equipment.
