Hexafluorine® solution is a derivative of Diphoterine® solution, specifically designed to rinse eye and skin splashes of Hydrofluoric Acid or its derivatives and bind and neutralise both the corrosive H+ ions and  toxic F ions of Hydrofluoric Acid (HF).

Hexafluorine® solution can also decontaminate eye and skin splashes from fluorides in an acidic environment.

When dealing with an emergency we do not always know the exact nature of an aggressor - for example its concentration. To ensure effective and complete decontamination it is important to follow the protocol of commencing decontamination within 60 seconds and using the appropriate FULL contents of the relevent applicator.

Hexafluorine® solution is an aqueous solution and will freeze at a temperature of -1C. When the solution thaws it retains all of its properties.

We run an exchange system for all expired 5litre DAP showers. Before the expiry date our client care team will contact you to discuss your renewal requirements. The replacement unit order code is EDAPF.  

Once you have your exchange shower on site then you should return your emptied DAPF to us. Hexafluorine® is safe to empty to the drain. Before you do it's the ideal opportunity to arrange some practical refresher training with your staff  and allow them to try out the expired shower before it is returned to us.
