Honeywell First Responder Products has documented that at the time of submission for review, recommended cleaning agents met the minimum NFPA 1851 and Honeywell SOP requirements for the cleaning of firefighter protective clothing. This is based on a review of the cleaning agent composition and pH. Honeywell does not monitor over any period of time whether formulation changes have occurred that may affect cleaning agent pH or use.
As part of each Organization’s annual risk assessment, cleaning agent MSDS should be carefully compared and reviewed for continued compliance with the current edition of NFPA 1851 standard.
If utilizing cleaning agents not listed on our site: Please note NFPA 1851 stipulates the pH of cleaning agents shall be between 6.0pH and 10.5pH as stated on either the product label or MSDS. NEVER USE CHLORINE BLEACH!
In all cases, it is the responsibility of the cleaning agent manufacturer or supplier to demonstrate the correct use and cleaning and decontamination efficacy of its products specific to customer’s satisfaction and to further demonstrate that repeated use of its products according to provided instructions will not damage clothing or cause any loss of protective performance.
This list is for the convenience of our customers only. Honeywell assumes no liability for the performance of the listed products nor for the results of using such products in any cleaning.
Failure to understand the limitations of this list of cleaning agents, to perform an annual risk assessment, and to require appropriate information from the manufacturer or supplier of the cleaning agent, may result in serious injury or death.
