HEXAFLUORINE® is an active eyewash solution developed by the PREVOR risk management and toxicology laboratories for hydrofluoric acid (HF) splashes.
Hydrofluoric acid (HF) has two effects on live tissue:
Corrosive effect due to hydrogen ions (H+) that attach to surface tissues (cornea epithelium or epidermis), Toxic effect due to fluoride ions (F–) that penetrate the skin through the damaged upper layer with its acidity and bonds to the calcium in the body, causing biochemical, cellular and tissue damage.
HEXAFLUORINE® is used immediately after splashes of hydrofluoric acid and fluorides in acidin medium. Using HEXAFLUORIDE® immediately after the splash, meaning using the whole package in any form, prevents the burn from spreading and reduces the risk of injury.
HEXAFLUORINE® is a special solution used in case of hydrofluoric acid burns in the eye or on the skin. It has two mechanisms, with a hypertonic structure that has a pincher effect:
The hypertonic effect of HEXAFLUORINE® prevents the chemical from penetrating the tissue and creates a reverse flow that draws the chemical to the surface.
Different packaging options and presentations of HEXAFLORINE® solution are designed for different risks for providing maximum efficiency during accidents. All forms are ready-to-use in their own packaging. They are ideal for simple and urgent use. HEXAFLUORINE® is sterile and each package is for a single application.
Effective and comfortable washing with an eye cup that fits the eye ergonomically, keeps it open and provides a quick rinse without applying any pressure.
