Radiacwash™ Radiation Decontamination Solution
For skin and most surfaces
- The first and most popular general purpose decontamination solution specifically created for the fast and safe from skin and surfaces.
- Available in:
- Nuclear source, radioactive waste or dirty bomb source. Formulated for decontamination of radiation the entire spectrum of radiation.
- Rapidly controls radioactive contamination and removes radioactive particles by a two-way action:
- Sequesters radioactive metallic ions which contaminate surfaces.
- Lifts up and firmly suspends the contaminating particles, allowing contamination to be rinsed away with water or wiped away with Radiation-Wipes.
- Removes general laboratory contaminants such as soil, grease, oil, blood, resides, resins, and tissue. Can be used safely on most surfaces, either straight or diluted, including skin, cloth, all metals, glass, floors, walls, leather, rubber, porcelain, plastic, laboratory instruments, utensils and equipment.
- Used extensively in hospitals, universities, laboratories and reactor facilities since 1951.
- A synergic liquid compound that optimally combines a number of different chemical and physical principles causing it to act as a surface-wetting sequestering agent, chelater, carrier, ion-exchanger, emulsifier, solvent, complexer, peptizer and detergent.
- Has a pH of 5, less than .008% Halides, contains no phosphates, chromates, silicates, enzymes, borates, aluminates, carbonates, and inert fillers that can interfere with sensitive analytical procedures.
- Non-alkaline, non-corrosive, and biodegradable.
Who uses or recommends Radiacwash™ for radiation decontamination?
- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security in their Guide for the Selection of Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Decontamination Equipment for Emergency First Responders (page 50, Section 3.5.2)
- The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) includes Radiacwash on its suggested supply list for decontamination during a radiation emergency.
- The U.S. Naval Hospital has successfully used Radiacwash since at least 1964!
- Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory with the U.S. Department of Energy, Northern Marshall Islands Radiological Survey.
- Office of Health and Environmental Safety, University of Arkansas. and many other university labs.
- Harvard’s Environmental Health and Safety Division
- U.S. Department of Energy

Radiacwash MSDS Keep Radiacwash away from eyes, body cavities, sensitive skin, abrasions and open cuts. Flood effected areas with water. Do NOT take internally. Avoid contact with mucous membranes. Keep away from children.
Radiacwash™ Spray Mist for skin and surfaces combines the power and economy of Radiacwash™ with the convenience of aerosols. Radiacwash™ Spray Mist allows Radiacwash to penetrate around and under contaminants and lift them off the surface into solution to be wiped up with Radiation-Wipes and disposed. Available in 32 oz spray bottle, 16 oz spray bottle and 8 oz spray bottle. Also included in Radiation Emergency Kits.
How much to buy?
32 ounces covers roughly 20 square feet on a non-porous, flat surface. 16 ounces cover roughly 10 square feet on a non-porous, flat surface. For skin decontamination the amount needed cannot be easily quantified due to body size differences and how much decontamination is required. A minimum of one 8 oz spray bottle per person is recommended.
Radiacwash™ Decontamination Wipes are the most efficient and safest way to remove radiocontamination from hands and small objects. Radiacwash™ Wipes are saturated in a special Radiacwash™ solution. Simply remove the wipe from the dispenser, scrub hands thoroughly and wash the contamination away with running water.
