Radiacwash™

This compound is formulated to decontaminate contamination from radioisotopes and fission products, without affecting surfaces as acids and reagents do. Radiacwash™ is a concentrated solution designed to rapidly control radioactive contamination and remove radioactive particles from surfaces by a two-way action. First, it will sequester metallic ions which contaminate surfaces. Second, it lifts up and firmly suspends the contaminating particles, allowing contamination to be rinsed away with hard, soft or salt water.
