How It Works

DeconGel is extremely versatile, for use on virtually any surface such as concrete, steel, painted or unpainted wood, aluminium, Plexiglas, tile and grout, linoleum and much more.

Safe and extremely user-friendly, DeconGel requires no preparation prior to use and can be either painted or sprayed onto a contaminated area, including cracks, pores and voids.

Easy To Use

Because DeconGel is easily sprayed or brushed onto contaminated surfaces, horizontal or vertical uses are no longer a problem. And, unlike other decontamination products, DeconGel is also safe, with virtually no odour or fumes, the use of respirators while applying the product may not be necessary (please comply with applicable corporate, local, state and Federal regulations when using DeconGel).

Super Tensile Strength

DeconGel has super tensile strength and toughness – the dried gel is difficult to tear so it peels easily from most surfaces even rough surfaces such as pavement.

Also, because DeconGel is a safe alternative to acids or soap and water, all contaminants are contained within the gel resulting in no contaminated runoff.

Lower Labor Costs

DeconGel is simple to apply, only minimal user training required. CBI Polymers does offer a full certification course for those interested in becomings certified appliers. Certification is not required to apply DeconGel. Its quick and easy application results in a cost-effective labour solution – less manpower and less application time required – for even large-scale decontamination and clean-up projects. No scrubbing is required like soap and water.

Minimized Waste Generation

Rags and large volumes of water are not used to clean with DeconGel. For radioactive contaminants, the peelable polymer is approved for disposal at WIPP and often considered low-level, non-mixed waste, so disposal is less costly than other alternatives. In addition, DeconGel is compressible to further reduce waste volume and is incinerable for those contaminants approved for incineration. Rinsing or dilution with water is not necessary with DeconGel, so contaminated liquid runoff is not an issue.

Reduces Potential Exposure to Contaminants

DeconGel reduces potential exposure to employees by encapsulating and providing a protective barrier (acting as dust suppressant).

Proven Effectiveness

DeconGel has proven its superior decontamination effectiveness at a diverse array of properties and businesses such as:

  • Commercial nuclear power plants
  • Decommissioning and decontamination (D&D) sites
  • Chemical and radiological deposits and spills in manufacturing and laboratory environments
  • DoD sites
  • Nuclear medicine deposits and spills in hospitals
  • Crime Scene Cleanup
  • Petroleum facilities
  • Meth lab decontamination
  • Etc.

1101 Gel

DeconGel for Chemical and Radioactive Clean-Up

DeconGel for chemical and radioactive clean-up is available in three convenient, environmentally-friendly versions. With DeconGel 1101 Gel, users can easily decontaminate nearly any source with ease by troweling or brushing the product onto contaminated surfaces. DeconGel offers significant decontamination in all applications. For large vertical or inverted surfaces we recommend DeconGel 1120 or 1121.

As no mixing is required, DeconGel 1101 Gel can be used directly from the container and should not be diluted. Because of its unique properties, application to nearly any surface, including:

  • Bare, coated or painted concrete
  • Aluminum, steel or lead
  • Rubber, glass, Plexiglas, herculite
  • Wood, porcelain, tile and grout,
  • Ceramic or linoleum floors

Because it’s a nearly odorless blue gel, DeconGel quickly and easily adheres to horizontal, vertical and even inverted surfaces. DeconGel quickly encapsulates contamination, locking it into the drying gel. The super tensile strength of DeconGel yields a tough, dried gel, which is easily peeled, with no unwanted tearing.

Drying time for DeconGel varies, depending on humidity, air temperature and thickness of application. From as quickly as one hour (for thin coats) to overnight for large jobs, DeconGel’s drying time can significantly vary. Users can easily test a small area to determine drying time prior to applying DeconGel for an entire job. Supplemental heat or air circulation will accelerate DeconGel’s drying time for any job.

Disposal is quick and easy, in accordance with local, state and Federal regulations.

DeconGel is an economical decontamination solution, with average coverage of 25 to 100 feet per gallon, depending on surface size and characteristics.

1108 Gel

DeconGel 1108 is recommended for decontamination of radioisotopes as well as particulates, heavy metals, water-soluble and insoluble organic compounds, including tritiated compounds. The hydrogel coating can be applied to horizontal, vertical and inverted surfaces and can be applied to most surfaces including bare, coated and painted concrete, aluminum, steel, lead, rubber, plexiglas, herculite, wood, porcelain, tile grout, and vinyl, ceramic and linoleum floor tiles. When dry, the product locks the contaminants into a polymer matrix. The film containing the encapsulated contamination can then be peeled and disposed of according to appropriate local, state and federal regulations.

DeconGel 1120/1121 – Spray

DeconGel for Chemical and Radioactive Clean-Up (for use with hand-held or industrial airless sprayers – no dilution required)

Designed for hand-held power painters, DeconGel 1120 and 1121 (industrial airless sprayers) are the perfect solution for decontamination of radioisotopes as well as particulates, heavy metals, water-soluble and insoluble organic compounds, including tritiated compounds.

Blue Decongel is so easy to use, there is no need for mixing or diluting the product. Because there is virtually no odor or fumes, and depending upon what is being picked up, users may not need to wear respirators or gloves while handling DeconGel. CBI Polymers always recommends that users follow appropriate safety procedures in accordance with appropriate rules, regulations or policies for their area or industry.

When using DeconGel 1120 Spray, a light-duty, hand-held power sprayer with at least 2600 psi, and a wide shot tip is recommended. DeconGel can easily and quickly be applied to horizontal and vertical surfaces, to instantly control contamination. The DeconGel traps contaminants into the quick-dry, peelable gel, for 100 percent decontamination, with easy disposal.

Choosing DeconGel 1121 Spray requires an industrial electric airless sprayer with capabilities of 0.95 gallons per minute (gpm) or faster and a spray tip of 0.019 inches.

DeconGel 1121 Spray is ONLY recommended for non-porous (1 to 2 coats) or semi-porous materials (3 to 4 coats) and drying time will vary due to air temperature, humidity and thickness of applied coats of DeconGel 1121. Use of supplemental heat or air circulation can accelerate drying time.

DeconGel 1120/1121 – Spray
