DeconGel® is a proven, tough, professional, military-grade, safe to use and handle, water soluble, and environmentally friendly product for extreme, hard-to-clean contamination remediation challenges for any industry. If you can only take one product with you – this is it.
It is exceptionally effective against radioactive isotopes but has the strength to pull off any job – from radioactive isotopes for nuclear plant decommissioning and nuclear medicine spills, to toxic industrial chemicals and materials such as mercury, PCB, acids, lead, asbestos, and methamphetamines.
DeconGel® is effective, has outstanding efficacy, and can save time and money through reduced labor, waste disposal needs and EPA reporting requirements. DeconGel® is used in the US, Canada, UK, and other locations to remove radioactive materials and Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TIC). DeconGel® customers are repeat buyers with proven superior decontamination effectiveness at a diverse array of properties and businesses.
Watch the video below on how DeconGel was used in Japan after the Fukushima Reactor Incident.
How It Works
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.
So Easy To Use
Because DeconGel® is easily sprayed or brushed onto contaminated surfaces, horizontal or vertical uses are no longer a problem. And, unlike other decontamination products, DeconGel® is also safe, with virtually no odor or fumes, the use of respirators while applying the product may not be necessary (please comply with applicable corporate, local, state and Federal regulations when using DeconGel®).
Super Tensile Strength
DeconGel® has super tensile strength and toughness – the dried gel will not tear, so scraping product remnants from the surface is not an issue.
Also, because DeconGel® is a safe alternative to acids or soap and water, there is no need to worry about contaminated run off.
Lower Labor Costs
DeconGel® is simple to apply, only minimal user training required – about 10 minutes. Its quick and easy application results in a cost-effective labor solution – less manpower and less application time required – for even large-scale decontamination and clean-up projects. No scrubbing is required like soap and water.
Minimized Waste Generation
Rags and large volumes of water are not used to clean with DeconGel® . The peelable polymer is approved for disposal at WIPP and often considered low-level, non-mixed waste, so disposal is less costly than other alternatives. In addition, DeconGel® offers minimal compaction compared to other solutions. Rinsing or dilution with water is not necessary with DeconGel®, so contaminated liquid runoff is not an issue.
Reduces Potential Exposure to Contaminants
DeconGel® reduces potential exposure to employees by encapsulating and providing a protective barrier (acting as dust suppressant).
DeconGel® has proven its superior decontamination effectiveness at a diverse array of properties and businesses such as:
