AFCEC study gives new life to old chemical defense decon kits

As seen in this demonstration, Airmen in the field utilize a velcro-cinched mitt to apply a carbon powder that puffs up when blotting a chemical agent, wiping it away and soaking it up like a sponge. The mitt is critical in the decontamination process in making sure the chemical agent doesn’t penetrate the uniform fabric. (U.S. Air Force photo by Lisa Cymmer)
