DeconGel is categorized into four different formulations based on operational need.
Apply with brush or towel
|Optimized for oil and grease decontamination (crude oil, diesel, PCBs, etc.)|
Apply with brush or towel
|For extremely heavy nuclear and toxic industrial chemical and material decontamination.|
Optimized for hand-held light duty sprayers
|Formulated and optimized for hard, smooth surfaces like glass, steel, polished stone, and other smooth, hard substrates. Used for nuclear and chemical decontamination.|
Optimized for extreme heavy duty industrial sprayers
|Formulated for horizontal and vertical hard, porous and non-porous surfaces like concrete, pavement, wood, glass, steel, stone, and other hard substrates. Used for heavy nuclear and chemical decontamination.|
[su_spoiler title=”Versatile & Easy to Use”]
DeconGel is extremely versatile, for use on virtually any surface such as concrete, steel, painted or unpainted wood, aluminum, plexiglass, tile and grout, linoleum, and more. It’s easily sprayed or brushed onto any of these contaminated surfaces.
[su_spoiler title=”Drying Time”]
Drying time depends on a combination of ambient humidity, temperature, type of substrate, and applied wet film thickness, but drying can take as little time as one hour (for thin coats in a dry place with plenty of airflow) to overnight or longer (if thicker coats are applied in humid environments). Using fans, heat, and/or a dehumidifier can speed up drying time. Once dry, DeconGel peels easily and the film containing the encapsulated contamination can be disposed of according to appropriate local, state, and federal regulations.
[su_spoiler title=”Minimized Waste Generation “]
DeconGel is a safe alternative to acids or soap and water. Large volumes of water are not needed with DeconGel, so there is no need to worry about contaminated run-off. The peelable polymer offers minimal compaction compared to other solutions and eliminates liquid by-product.
DeconGel has obtained the following waste disposal approvals, subject to the restrictions that apply to the contaminated encapsulated:
[su_list icon=”icon: angle-right”]
- Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Transuranic Waste Disposal Facility
- Disposal at low-level radioactive waste sites
- Incineration at U.S. commercial low-level waste facilities
- Approved disposal at low-level sites, such as the Energy Solutions Clive facility in Utah
- Approved incineration at the Bear Creek facility in Tennessee (another Energy Solutions site)
[su_spoiler title=”Recommended Uses”]
DeconGel is recommended for decontamination of radioisotopes as well as particulates, heavy metals, and 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 concrete (bare, coated, and painted), aluminum, steel, rubber, lead, plexiglass, herculite, wood, porcelain, tile grout, and floor tiles (vinyl, ceramic, and linoleum).
