Researchers at the Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University, USA, are developing a wipe for warfare agents and hazardous chemicals. The decontamination wipe, called Fibertect™, is said to have outperformed 30 different decontamination materials. It is made of an activated carbon core sandwiched between an absorbent layer on the top and the bottom. Fibertect also does not contain any loose particles and is thus capable of cleaning intricate parts.
