The “AHA” effect of Glycolic Acid
Glycolic Acid is one of the most effective Alpha-Hydroxyacetic Acids (AHA). In fact the smallest AHA molecule in size, it is readily biodegradable, Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) exempt, non-flammable and safe to handle. Due to its versatile applicability it is used in many different industries. CABB produces Glycolic Acid based on Monochloroacetic Acid in a dedicated plant in Gersthofen (Germany) and is the only producer in Europe. With more than 50 years of experience in the production of Glycolic Acid CABB offers the highest level of quality and safety standards. Our synthesis route avoids the presence of Methoxyacetic Acid and is therefore clearly your best choice.
Being fully registered under REACH our trademarks Glytech™ and Glycos™ have built a strong brand reputation along the value chain.
Technical grade of Glycolic Acid comes as aqueous solution either in 57% or 70% concentration. They are both used for household, institutional and industrial cleaners as they are effective at dissolving Casein and the formed salts are better soluble than e.g. Phosphates.
It is an outstanding alternative through its ability to simultaneously clean and disinfect.
Being added to antiscalant or concrete remover formulations Glycolic Acid can help to significantly decrease process downtime.
During the manufacturing of phenolic resins, Glytech™ Basic is a mild organic acid allowing the resins to cure more slowly.
Glytech™ Basic is available in drums of 250 kg and IBC of 1250 kg.
Glycos™ Clear is our premium grade AHA and one of the most popular ingredients for anti-aging products such as chemical peelings.
Its excellent capability to penetrate the top layer of skin promotes the natural cell-loss process and improves turnover rate of skin cells.
By weakening the lipid bonds that hold dead skin cells together Glycolic Acid may help to reveal the underlying skin, giving you a healthier and younger look and feel.
Glycos™ Clear 70% is available in drums of 25 kg, 70 kg and 250 kg.
