DeconGel was originally developed for the U.S Air Force to use on special mission aircraft designed for air sampling. Although DeconGel was created initially for the U.S. Government, its dual-use capabilities and strength as a potential commercial product exceeded expectations. DeconGel use soon spread to Nuclear Power plants and remediation service companies worldwide. The hydrogel is used to decontaminate a broad spectrum of hard surfaces and 3-D objects.

The product also can be used within the military, HAZMAT, CBRNE, and overall clean-up training scenarios. Other products often require mixing toxic chemicals and are too costly or labor intensive for actual training. With DeconGel you fight as you train, so when a real event occurs, your crews are ready!

CBI Polymers has delivered its line of decontamination products to customers including the U.S Department of Energy, nuclear plants across the United States, Canada and the U.K. We are headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii with ISO 9002 certified manufacturing facilities in Ohio. We have sales associates throughout the world so feel free to contact us today so we can provide you a CBI Polymers solution immediately.

Hungarian Disaster Relief
Hungarian Disaster Relief“The results were dramatic,” Harrison said. “You could see the sludge encapsulated in the gel and the treated areas appeared to have removal levels of between 75 and 90 percent with just a single application.” Deputy Mayor Laszlo Kovacs.

“It is impressive to see a company like CBI Polymers stepping forward to assist with the clean-up and relief efforts in Hungary,” added John Holman, Director of the Pacific Islands for the U.S. Commercial Service (USCS). “Within hours of the incident, they had reached out to see how they best could provide assistance. I have been impressed with the capability of DeconGel® and believe it may contribute significantly towards creating a safer environment for the people of Hungary.”

Cham Dallas, Ph.D., a radiation mitigation expert and Director of the Institute for Health Management and Mass Destruction Defense at the University of Georgia, oversaw the application of DeconGel® nuclear decontaminant and removal of radiation for the project. “DeconGel provides the unique capability to encapsulate radiation, making removal more efficient, while minimizing the opportunity for the radiation to spread,” Dallas said.


Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Crisis
Fukushima-Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Crisis“The deployment of DeconGel® to Japan is extremely timely and I can see multiple scenarios where it will assist in the technical solution to the current crisis and the subsequent clean up,” said Admiral Thomas B. Fargo USN (Ret.), former Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command.

“We are all very concerned with the situation in Japan and there has been a broad based effort to provide assistance,” stated the Honorable George R. Ariyoshi, former Governor of the State of Hawaii (1973-1986) who lauded the donation of DeconGel®. “I am extremely proud of the fact that a technology invented and developed in Hawaii will be making a difference to help our close friend and ally during her time of great need.”
