Radiation Decontamination Solutions

The Quick Decon Transition Metals (TM), Actinides (A), and Halogens (H) solutions are the world’s most effective and safest solutions for radiation decontamination of radioactive surfaces including human skin.

These solutions were developed by a combination of nuclear pharmacists, nuclear chemists, radiation experts, and NASA consultants with many years of experience in the nuclear and medical device industry.  They have succeeded in the goal to develop a formula that would safely and significantly remove radioactive material from human skin and on other surfaces in the event of a nuclear event.

Radioactive contamination poses several cleanup problems including the following:  the safety of cleanup personnel, control of waste volume, and end-state contamination level. In an effort to address these problems, we have investigated the use of ion-exchange resin preparation technology to treat contaminated surfaces.

These products reduce cleanup time; control waste volume and leave the surface in a state where minimal radioactive contamination is present.

Quick Decon Solutions

Quick Decon Application

The Quick Decon Solution (QDS) family of products can significantly reduce

time and personal dose associated with ALL decontamination efforts and tasks

The core technology is called the "Mass Effect" influence. When our proprietary solutions are introduced to a contaminated surface, the radioactive material is lifted from the surface and suspended in the solution, where it can be easily wiped up or rinsed away as radioactive waste. Spray on, let solution penetrate for 1-5 mins, and then wipe down or rinse off. Our products are currently in use in commercial waste facilities and in hospitals, with a proven track record of significantly reducing time and dose on critical path applications such as Cavity Decon.

The QDS TM GEL is extremely desirable to use for Nuclear Power Plant (NPP)  RX Cavity cleaning and use in general at NPP’s because of its unique ability to remove the radioactive contaminants from solution WITHOUT binding or affecting the resin binding sites.  The Decon GEL has NO Ionics (available free radicals) and contains no detergents and thus is ‘inert’ to the resin materials.   Therefore, the active ‘sites’ for the Rad Waste resins are left uncompromised/unused and available to filter out the targeted contaminants from the RCS, etc.  

 

For the above reasons, and because the Quick Decon solution is 98% H2O, it passes straight through the resins with no negative effects.

Combo Wipes Features

The core technology used in the QDS Combo Wipes is based upon the "Mass Effect" Principle.   When the proprietary wipes, which are saturated with the decontamination solution, come in direct contact with ‘loose’ or ‘removable’ contamination on a surface, the radioactive material is ‘lifted’ from the material surface via the ion-exchange process.  Like-property non-radioactive ions replace the radioactive ones.   The radioactive ions/contamination is collected on the wipe and disposed of as radioactive waste.

Nuke Away Transition Metals and Actinides

Nuke Away Decon Spray Bottle

Any of the QDS Solutions (Trace Minerals, Actinides, or Halogens)
are available for use in the Nuke Away Dual Sprayer

The spray bottle dispenses two liquids at the same time at a predetermined, fixed dilution ratio. This makes it ideal for decontaminating surfaces where the radioactive source term is unknown.

Benefits

  1. Safe & quick ionic-focused solution for radiation removal

  2. Cost Effective

  3. Safe surface radiation isotope remover

  4. First line for safe radiation defense

  5. Can be used on intact human skin

  6. Environmentally friendly

  7. Far superior to Radiacwash or any other similar product

  8. Effective on 63 different elements

Nuke Away

A revolutionary scientific product for radiation decontamination. 

Now, scientifically formulated products used by nuclear power plants and nuclear waste facilities are available to emergency personnel, first responders and the general public.  For the first time, using one easy Emergency RadDecon Kit, you can safely, quickly, and significantly remove radioactive material from yourself and surfaces.  Decontaminate yourself,  your family, and your important possessions in the event of a radiation emergency.

RedDecon Kit

The Emergency RadDecon Kit is the world's most effective and safest solution for radiation decontamination of radioactive surfaces including human skin.

RadDecon Kits

Our products are currently in use to remove radioactive material in many nuclear power plants, nuclear waste facilities and in hospitals with nuclear medicine departments throughout the United States and abroad.  

These products are NOT radioactive before use.  The liquid solutions should NOT be used on open wounds and should NOT be ingested.
