Discover the versatility of acetic acid, a colorless liquid with antibacterial and antifungal properties, from the carboxylic family. Commonly used in industry, acetic acid is used in the production of plastics, textiles for dyeing and printing, cleaning products and more. Its best-known application is as a food preservative. Vinegar (6% concentration) owes its odor and flavor to acetic acid. It is also used in the pharmaceutical industry.

Thanks to its disinfectant properties, acetic acid is widely used in cleaning products. It is effective at eliminating germs and microbes, making it a key component in ecological, biodegradable and conventional cleaners. It is used in various cleaning products such as glass cleaners, floor cleaners, roof cleaners and surface cleaners. It is a powerful descaler.

Finally, acetic acid in solution is also commonly used to optimize drinking water quality, since its acidifying power lowers pH. Acetic acid 56% is generally recommended for this purpose.
