Glycolic Acid USES

Glycolic Acid is a crucial natural synthesis intermediate and chemical item, which is extensively utilized in organic synthesis, cleaning, electroplating, textile, natural leather, sanitation and also other sectors.

  • Hydroxyacetic acid is an important chemical raw material, mainly used for dyeing auxiliaries for wool and acrylic fibers, and also used as a raw material for ethylene glycol, menthyl glycolate and quinine glycolate, and a substitute for tartaric acid.
  • Glycolic Acid can also be used to prepare tanning agents, hair dyes, leather dyes, fiber dyes, adhesives, metal chelating agents, petroleum demulsifiers, electroplating agents, aluminum plate etchants, cross-linking agents for cellulose fabrics, stainless steel electropolishing agents Wait.
  • Glycolic Acid is also used as a cleaner, disinfectant for food processing plants, cattle and sheds, boiler anti-scaling agent, copper and other metal surface treatment agents, and preparation of skin care cosmetics.
  • The combined acid prepared by blending 2% glycolic acid as well as 1% formic acid is a high-efficiency as well as low-cost cleaning agent, ideal for cleansing ac system.
  • Hydroxyacetic acid can be made use of to prepare fiber dyes, detergents, active ingredients for welding, varnish components, copper etchants, adhesives, oil demulsifiers and also metal chelating representatives.
  • Salt as well as potassium salts of glycolic acid can be made use of as additives for electroplating remedies.
  • Other uses consist of electrolytic grinding, metal pickling, natural leather dyeing as well as tanning agents.

In the last few years, scientific research study has actually found that the polymer of Glycolic acid is eco-friendly, which solves the problem of difficult deterioration of typical plastic products, and can be extensively made use of in medication, packaging and also lots of various other fields.
