Hexafluorine® solution – emergency treatment for hydrofluoric acid injuries
The HEXAFLUORINE® solution has a multiple action
The HEXAFLUORINE® solution is a liquid which removes the aggressive chemical from the surface by mechanical sweeping.
The properties of the HEXAFLUORINE® solution allows the absorption of acid ions (H+) and fluoride ions (F–) very quickly and simultaneously.
Its power of chelation of these ions is 100 times higher than the chelating power of calcium gluconate (the usual antidote used on hydrofluoric acid burns).
Like the DIPHOTERINE® solution, the HEXAFLUORINE® solution is a hypertonic solution which enables it to stop the spreading of fluor ions and thus to play a part in the complete decontamination of the splash.
The combination of these three properties allows the HEXAFLUORINE® solution, used immediately after accident, to perform the optimal decontamination of hydrofluoric acid splashes and thus to prevent the dreadful sequelae that result too often from such kind of splashes (amputation, heavy surgery or even death of the victim by cardiac standstill).
Prevor products do not contain any phosphates.
The presence of phosphates in a solution prevents its use on certain products (e.g. lime, cement, etc…). Certain studies have shown that side effects due to phosphates can occur in some cases. Prevor in its desire for universality has always worked without phosphates.
