Metal Cleaning & Finishing with Glycolic Acid

A BIODEGRADABLE ORGANIC ACID

Glycolic acid is a great choice for metal cleaning because of its dual functionality to act as an acid and/or an alcohol.  It's useful in a wide variety of metal cleaning applications including equipment, stainless steel boilers, heat exchangers, and many other industrial metal surfaces.

GLYCOLIC ACID IN METAL CLEANING APPLICATIONS:

 
  • Aluminum and copper cleaner and finishing
  • Electroless platin premix
  • Electropolishing electrolytes
  • Anodizing and sealer formulations
  • Pickling and mill scale
  • Acid cleaning and degreasing
  • Wheel cleaner
  • Buffing compound cleaner

Why Chemours Glycolic Acid?
