Decongel is the ultimate decontaminate product, capable of removing a large range of contaminants from surfaces without degrading the integrity of the equipment or surface. It is suitable for Oil and Grease through to Chemicals and Radioactive isotope decontamination.
DeconGel is extremely versatile, for use on virtually any surface such as concrete, steel, painted or unpainted wood, aluminum, Plexiglas, tile and grout, linoleum and much more. Safe and extremely user-friendly, DeconGel requires no preparation prior to use and can be either painted or sprayed onto a contaminated area, including cracks, pores and voids. DeconGel is easily sprayed or brushed onto contaminated surfaces, horizontal or vertical uses are no longer a problem and, unlike some other decontamination products, DeconGel is also safe, with virtually no odour or fumes. The use of respirators while applying the product may not be necessary. DeconGel has super tensile strength and toughness – the dried gel is difficult to tear so it peels easily from most surfaces, even rough surfaces such as pavements. DeconGel is a safe alternative to acids or soap and water, all contaminants are contained within the gel resulting in no contaminated run off.
Its quick and easy application results in a cost-effective labour solution, less manpower and less application time required, for even large-scale decontamination and clean-up projects. No scrubbing is required as with soap and water. Minimised Waste Generation Rags and large volumes of water are not used to clean with DeconGel . For radioactive contaminants, the peelable polymer is approved for disposal at WIPP and often is considered low-level, non-mixed waste, so disposal is less costly than other alternatives. In addition, DeconGel is compressible to further reduce waste volume, and is incinerable for those contaminants approved for incineration.
DeconGel reduces potential exposure to employees by encapsulating and providing a protective barrier (acting as dust suppressant). It has proven its superior decontamination effectiveness on a diverse array of properties and businesses such as: Commercial nuclear power plants; Decommissioning and decontamination (D&D) sites; Chemical and radiological deposits and spills in manufacturing and laboratory environments; US DoD sites; Nuclear medicine deposits and spills in hospitals; Crime Scene cleanup; Petroleum facilities; Meths lab decontamination etc.
