Abstract:

In the concept explorationdemonstration and validation phase of the PersonnelCasualty Decontamination System Skin Decontamination Kit PCDS SDK development program, it was shown that a safe and effective skin decontamination system against chemical warfare CW agents can be designed based on Ambergard XE-555 or Ambergard XE-556 resins developed by Rohm and Haas Company. The prototype PCDS SDK developed as part of this contract evolved into a novel soft- pack design. Each PCDS SDK consists of six applications of decontamination material in individual flexible pouches with its own pad for applying, spreading, and removing the decon material. A Special In-Process Review recommended that the program proceed to full-scale development. Keywords Decontamination kits.
