For the reduction of toxic mercury vapor, HgX® is an inexpensive, water soluble, non-hazardous, metallic-mercury/sulfide converting powder with a chelating compound and dispersing agent. It reacts rapidly, forming a film over the finely divided, nearly invisible beads of mercury and reacting to produce a non-vaporizing sulfide. Further, HgX® keeps on working. Particles of HgX® left on cleaned surfaces are reactivated during subsequent cleaning.
HgX® is not harmful. None of its components are classified as toxic. It leaves no odor. And no allergic reactions have ever been reported even after continuous use under various conditions.
HgX® is stable. It is supplied in polyethylene drums and can be stored safely up to one year without any loss of activity.
