DCON Mitt

The DCON Mitt is a new concept for physical removal, that incorporates the effectiveness of microfiber with a barrier laminate, that protects the wearer’s gloved hands when performing decontamination.

Being highly absorbent, having the ability to retain small particles and solids, and being constructed of a skin-safe, non-reactive microfiber material, make the DCON Mitt effective and safe for removal of contaminants on skin, Individual Protective Equipment, weapons, and sensitive equipment such as electronics and optics.

Microfiber is composed from a blend of polyester and polyamide fibers. These fibers are woven into smaller “splits,” which are many times smaller than a human hair. Splits give microfiber the ability to conform to surfaces and penetrate small cracks and crevasses on surfaces, which provides superior ability to remove liquids and droplets when compared to other absorbent materials like cotton cloths, paper towels, or plain polyester fabric alone. Microfiber’s split construction also provides a greater surface area in which liquids can be absorbed.

In fact, microfiber can absorb 7-8 times its weight in liquids as compared to other materials. The fiber splits, either dry or slightly moistened with water, generate an attractive charge that helps entrap small solid particles and germs. This effect reduces cross contamination and lessen the chance of resuspending the contaminant and creating an airborne hazard.
