To wear the glove, the user’s hand is placed
into the glove between the side containing
the reservoir and the wiping side.

the contaminated location. It then absorbs the toxic liquid and is wiped up using the sponged
side.
The powder dose has been calculated to allow several spots to be decontaminated.

(120x200x20mm) and includes instructions for use.
It can be used by either military personnel or Civil Defence forces.
