Chemical Material Contamination Control Guide.


Herein are tables of chemical agents with their accompanying symbols and description of properties for each. The tables include information on toxicity, speed of toxic effect, and means of detection and identification (Mil. only). Temperatures are given for the freezing/melting point for each agent and for decomposition. The tables describe each agent persistency and explain in some detail the proper decontamination procedures for each. Individual agents are grouped according to classification, such as nerve, blister, blood, chocking, vomiting or tear.
