“The Green Chelate,” Dissolvine® GL-47-S (Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate) is a high purity, versatile and readily biodegradable chelate based upon L-glutamic acid, a natural and renewable raw material.
In November 2013, Dissolvine GL officially received DfE designation and the recognition from the U.S. EPA that Dissolvine GL is green and performs highly effectively.
Compared to EDTA and NTA, Dissolvine® GL performs better when it comes to hard surface cleaning. It does not sensitize human skin, demonstrates enhanced biocidal boosting power and improved biodegradability properties. Compared to phosphates and phosphonates, it is a far more effective chelating agent. It is also used in bath and shower products, cosmetics, hair care and colorings, powders, body treatments and personal care wipes.
Dissolvine GL is used as a builder for cleaners and detergents and presents an alternative to phosphates, nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA).
