Hi a ll,
I he ard about this incident second hand.  Have any of you heard of dipho terine?

There recently has been a serious incident at a manufacturing site in Western Australia involving 98% H2SO4 . As a result of this, corporate SHE is implementing the use of a wash so lution called diphoterine. Has anyone heard of this? It's intended as a fir st aid measure (instead of water) to flush the skin and is supposed to amel iorate blistering and/or reduce pain from contact with acids and alkalis.
If anyone has any knowledge of it or experience using it I would be i nterested in hearing about it.
