Until now, HazMat teams had two choices of decontamination processes: wet or dry decon.
Wet decon is effective, but time consuming and generated contaminated runoff that must be disposed of safely.
To overcome the disadvantages of the wet process, people have attempted a dry decontamination process using a powder decontaminant. These powders were never very effective and a pain to deploy and clean up.
Now, two scientific breakthroughs have made it possible to get all the advantages of both wet and dry decon without the long operational times, large logistical footprint, and expensive disposal costs.
Hybrid Decon℠ is better than both wet and dry decontamination processes because Dahlgren Decon and FiberTect not only remove the contaminant, they chemically neutralize it.
Dahlgren Decon decontamination solution was developed by the U.S. Navy to reduce the logistical footprint of traditional decontamination processes.
It is a surfactant microemulsion that acts like a liquid sponge to lift and hold contamination while an oxidizer component rapidly chemically destroys the threat.
FiberTect is made of a fibrous activated carbon material that absorbs and adsorbs contaminants and their off-gasses.
Used together, they are a complete hybrid decon solution that can handle hundreds of known and emerging threats.
