BBI Detection partners with OUVRY to launch the Innovative DECPOL® Emergency Decontamination Mitt into new international markets


Decontamination Mitt to their portfolio of products.

DECPOL® represents the next generation in emergency CBRN dry decontamination solutions, composed of a super absorbent material permeated with advanced catalyzers. The DECPOL® mitt absorbs a wide spectrum of contaminants such as nerve agents and biological agents, these are subsequently destroyed by the catalyzers contained within the mitt. The decontamination market has long struggled to overcome technology limitations associated with cross contamination and potential further contamination through powder dispersion, however the DECPOL® mitt addresses these challenges with its innovative features.

BBI Detection continues to work closely with their international network of first responder and military end users to develop and supply a complimentary range of innovative products. BBI are committed to sourcing technology that will fill the capability gaps that exist across the CBRNe field, and the DECPOL® mitt sits well alongside the IMASS™ device and wider product portfolio

David Fraser, Marketing and Product Manager explains: “We’re really excited to add the DECPOL® Emergency Decontamination Mitt to our range of products. The mitt complements our existing range of CBRN Detection systems and will allow us to offer to our customers a simple, efficient and effective dry decontamination solution.”

BBI Detection are launching the DECPOL® Emergency Decontamination Mitt at IAFC Hazmat in Baltimore, USA on June 15 -17th 2017.
