Chemical Splash Decontamination

At Diphex we work closely with our clients to help reduce the risk of serious injury after a chemical splash.


Professional people working with chemicals, whilst making every effort to ensure that they work safely, are fully aware of the potential danger when things go wrong.

Effective decontamination following a chemical splash with a corrosive or irritant chemical is essential to prevent or lessen the severity of a chemical injury.

Amphoteric solutions are recommended for first-line use to decontaminate chemical injuries by the British Burn Association and Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care.
