Subject: Re: Use of diphoterine in labs
I recall reading a peer-reviewed article in the ACGIH journal in 2006 or 20
07 about diphoterine. It is supposed to neutralize liquids or other
wise prevent the further dilution of light-end petroleum-based material (e.
g., gasoline, diesel, JP-8), that more easily penetrate skin when d
iluted. What I was at NAS Whidbey Island, we were considering pur
chasing diphoterine for use by spill respond personnel who had dermal conta
ct with JP-8, avgas, gasoline, and diesel.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Use of d
iphoterine in labs
about this incident second hand. Have any of you heard of diphoteri
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 blisteri
and/or reduce pain from contact with acids and alkalis.
If anyone has any knowledge of it or experience using it I would be interes
in hearing about it.
