Global Glass Cleaning Chemicals Market: Overview
Glass cleaners are formulated with surfactants, which facilitate rapid drying and provide superior cleaning action needed to remove dirt, grease, and smoke film. Glass cleaners contain several chemicals, ammonia being one of them. Ammonia provides temporary alkalinity, which eliminates filming, and other nonionic wetting agents aid in a streak-free finish. The glass cleaner performs its task rapidly with minimal effort. Household glass cleaners help consumers to keep their homes sparkling clean and shining with a simple spray and the swipe of a cloth. Glass cleaning chemicals can be utilized to remove fingerprints and grease marks from various surfaces, and help remove salts and streaks that are deeply bonded to the glass. Some glass cleaning chemicals are employed to remove hard water stains from glass.
Among the several glass chemicals, some are ammonia based, while others are ammonia free. Different brands of household glass cleaners employ different ingredients; however, most manufacturers employ three main ingredients. In terms of composition, the glass cleaning chemicals market can be segmented into solvent, cleaning agent, wetting agent, fragrance, and dye. The most important chemical in glass cleaners is the cleaning agent. Based on chemicals, the glass cleaning chemicals market can be segregated into isopropyl alcohol, monoethanolamine, butyl glycol, and others. Isopropyl alcohol, also called rubbing alcohol, isopropanol, or dimethyl carbinol, is a key ingredient in glass cleaners. Isopropyl alcohol evaporates rapidly and dissolves oil or grease on contact. Monoethanolamine, also called MEA, is a toxic, flammable, corrosive liquid derived from ammonia, and is an ingredient in several household glass cleaning products. Butyl glycol, also called ethylene glycol butyl ether, or 2-butoxyethanol, is the single most widely produced glycol ether, which possess the chemical properties of ether and alcohol in the same molecule. Butyl glycol is a solvent that has a sweet odor; it is the chemical responsible for the sweet smell of glass cleaners like Windex.
