DuPont™ Glycolic Acid ensures economical cleaning by providing low-cost metal complexing in a readily biodegradable form that will not add potentially undesirable Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) or Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) to formulated products.  It can be used with hydrochloric or sulfamic acids to prevent iron precipitation in cleaning operations or water flooding.

NSF-certified with low odor, low vapor pressure and non-flammability, Glycolic Acid can effectively eliminate harmful deposits while minimizing corrosion damage to steel or copper piping systems… and all with safety in handling and ease of use.
