DeconGel 1108 Gel

DeconGel 1108 is recommended for decontamination of radioisotopes as well as particulates, heavy metals, water-soluble and insoluble organic compounds, including tritiated compounds. The hydrogel coating can be applied to horizontal, vertical and inverted surfaces and can be applied to most surfaces including bare, coated and painted concrete, aluminum, steel, lead, rubber, plexiglas, herculite, wood, porcelain, tile grout, and vinyl, ceramic and linoleum floor tiles. When dry, the product locks the contaminants into a polymer matrix. The film containing the encapsulated contamination can then be peeled and disposed of according to appropriate local, state and federal regulations.
