Cola®Teric AV is an an amphoteric acid thickener that effectively thickens HCl as well as acids, inorganic or organic, in the presence of chloride ions. As a surfactant, Cola®Teric AV also provides wetting and detergency properties in acid formulations. It offers viscosity building efficiency, ease of formulation and long-term viscosity stability. Cola®Teric AV is ideal for use in acid bowl cleaners, dairy cleaners and a variety of applications where viscous acid solutions are required.

For easiest results, add the Cola®Teric AV to the water and then add the acids. For acids that don’t contain chloride ions, sodium chloride can be added for effective thickening.
