I heard about this incident second hand. Have any of you heard of diphoterine?
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 solution called diphoterine. Has anyone heard of this? It's intended as a first aid measure (instead of water) to flush the skin and is supposed to ameliorate 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 interested in hearing about it.
