Abstract
The Canadian Fuller's Earth Mitt (Mitt) and the US Personnel/Casualty Decontamination System: Skin Decontamination Kit (SDK) were compared to the proposed Canadian Reactive Skin Decontamination Lotion (RSD) by parrallel exposure and decontamination of guinea pigs. GD and HD were placed on depilated areas on the back for 55 sec and the skin decontaminated. Mortality, time-to-effect and time-to-death were recorded for GD tests. The burn damage from HD was assessed.
