Water Treatment & Water Well Stimulation Applications

DuPont™ Glycolic Acid is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for use in cleaning potable water wells.  It is used widely to rehabilitate the flow efficiency of water wells by enabling water-soluble compounds (chelates) to be easily rinsed away with low corrosion to metal parts.  Glycolic Acid removes hard water scale (calcium, magnesium, manganese salts), various iron deposits and polysaccharide deposits.

Organic wastes are easily handled as Glycolic Acid biodegrades rapidly.  It is an easy to handle liquid with low toxicity, low odor, is non-flammable and has negligible fumes.
