First Aid Solution for Chemical Splashes

Prevention and implementation of first-aid solutions are essential in all situations involving a risk of human skin or eye contact with a chemical product. In case of an incident, emergency decontamination is required.

Hexafluorine® Solution
HEXAFLUORINE® solution is a liquid which removes the aggressive chemical from the surface by mechanical sweeping and has a multiple action. The properties of HEXAFLUORINE® solution allows the absorption of acid ions (H+) and fluoride ions (F-) very quickly and simultaneously. Its power of chelation of these ions is 100 times higher than the chelating power of calcium gluconate (the usual antidote used on hydrofluoric acid burns). Like the DIPHOTERINE® solution, the HEXAFLUORINE® solution is a hypertonic solution which enables it to stop the spreading of fluor ions and thus to play a part in the complete decontamination of the splash. The combination of these three properties allows the HEXAFLUORINE® solution, used immediately after accident, to perform the optimal decontamination of hydrofluoric acid splashes and thus to prevent the dreadful sequelae that result too often from such kind of splashes (amputation, heavy surgery or even death of the victim by cardiac

Diphoterine® solution
Diphoterine® solution is an emergency rinsing solution for splashes of chemical products. Its rapid use in case of contact between the skin or eye and a chemical product is intended to quickly eliminate the residual chemical product on the skin or in the eye. This makes it possible to limit the extent of the burns and lesions caused. Diphoterine® facilitates secondary treatment of the burn injuries by restricting the extent and severity of the lesions. The knowledge acquired during our research work on the mechanisms of the lesions caused by chemical products on soft tissues have allowed us to develop this technological solution for emergency rinsing of chemical splashes. Prevention and implementation of first-aid solutions are essential in all situations involving a risk of human skin or eye contact with a chemical product. In case of an incident, Diphotérine® solution allows performance of emergency decontamination. Historically, emergency rinsing with water represented an initial element of crucial progress in decontaminating chemical splashes. Use of water as a first-aid solution has its limits however. Owing to its physical and chemical properties, Diphoterine® solution allows rinsing to be performed more effectively than with water in case of splashing of chemical product.
