“The unique ability to decontaminate both chemical and pathogenic biological agents is outstanding and will assist in the saving of many lives.” – Lisa Fletcher CEO of Matrix International Exchange Ltd.
In the case of an unexpected chemical and/or biological contamination of areas of the body, the hazard can be swiftly removed and neutralized, due to the special design of the glove and the original formulation of the active decontamination powder.
The growth in the decontamination equipment and re-agents markets growth is driven by trends in world events including; Ebola outbreaks, CBRN attacks, hazardous material release and industrial scale accidents. World Governments now impose strict safety regulations and accident recovery funding. Life saving is driving the market for superior decontamination equipment and materials.
The DECON-GLOVE was developed from a joint collaboration between NBC systems, an international company specialising in the field of development, manufacture and marketing of protection and defence systems against non-conventional hazardous agents (CBRN threats) and the experts of the Laboratory of Heterogeneous Catalysis of the Institute of Molecular Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council.
The DECON-GLOVE synergistic action is based on a balanced mixture of a highly adsorbent clay from natural origin, together with a chlorine-free solid oxidant, which, in the presence of the heterogeneous catalyst contained in the powder, releases in-situ, free-radical oxygen with remarkably high biocidic and decontaminating capability. Hazardous agent can be removed efficiently and neutralised.
