The DFAK EU, or Decon First Aid Kit (EUROPEAN), is a tactical, self contained system that provides the operator with the necessary medical equipment to treat the most life threatening injuries consistent with a traditional trauma kit and the MARCH algorithm, but adds a secondary layer of treatment for decontamination of Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs) with the FAST ACT 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. The FAST-ACT® Decontamination Mitt is designated through CE mark and TGA certification as a Class 1 Non-Sterile Medical Device for an applicational dual-use for the decontamination of CWAs and toxic industrial materials on skin and surfaces. FAST-ACT® was tested on VX and HD CWA. Within 90 seconds FAST-ACT® removed over 99.9% of HD and VX and over 99.6% (detection limit) of GD from the surface. Over time the adsorbed agents were destroyed by FAST-ACT®.
FAST-ACT® is CE marked and can be used directly on skin meaning no RSDL is necessary.
For wet decontamination of CWAs, (2) Brutabs are contained in a mixing pouch designed to hold 48 ounces of water (not included) to create the optimal balance of decontamination liquid.
