Chemical Containment & Decontamination
FAST-ACT is offered in pressurized cylinders capable of addressing both liquid and vapor hazards, manually dispersed containers, kits for liquid hazard treatment, and mitts for equipment and surface decontamination. FAST-ACT can be safely applied to liquid spills or vapor releases enabling Emergency Responders to utilize one technology when faced with a wide variety of known or unknown chemical hazards.
FAST-ACT (First Applied Sorbent Treatment Against Chemical Threats) is a chemical hazard containment and neutralization system for liquid and vapor chemical spills and releases. FAST-ACT powder is available in a 5kg bulk pail to fill deployment containers as needed. FAST-ACT was the first and continues to be the only product of its kind able to destroy chemical warfare agents with the added capability to neutralize a wide range of toxic chemicals.
FAST-ACT works quickly to significantly reduce hazards associated with common industrial chemicals including acids, acidic/caustic gases, organic compounds, phosphorus and sulfur compounds, and many industrial solvents. By the nature of FAST-ACT’s innovative chemistry, hazards are chemically bound to the surface of the powder minimizing off-gassing.
Tested by U.S. Soldier Biological Chemical Command (SBCCOM) and Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle), FAST-ACT is proven to remove over 99.6% (detection limit) of VX, GD (soman) and HD (mustard “gas”) from surfaces in under 90 seconds, converting them to safer by-products.
The power and capabilities of FAST-ACT (First Applied Sorbent Treatment – Against Chemical Threats) in the form of an Individual Equipment Decontamination Mitt.
The FAST-ACT Individual Decontamination Mitt contains FAST-ACT powder in a pad with a polyethylene backing that can be used to decontaminate a wide variety of chemical agents from various surfaces. FAST-ACT is a rapid and effective way to safely neutralize toxic releases efficiently reducing life-safety threat, equipment, and cost.
