Calgonate® Calcium Gluconate Gel 25g
The Solution of Choice
Calgonate® Gel is an effective topical 2.5% calcium gluconate gel that is used in first aid response to hydrofluoric acid (HF) exposure or contact to the body. Calcium gluconate combines with hydrofluoric acid to neutralize the powerful fluoride ion.
Calcium gluconate is the preferred treatment of choice for minor HF (hydrofluoric acid) exposure for the following reasons:
- It is easy to use
- It can be self-administered or applied by personnel trained in first aid care
- It can be applied immediately as soon as the burn is suspected
- It is painless to apply
- It produces no risk of increasing tension in the tissues
- It reduces the risk of hypocalcemia
