After removing from a M295 Decontamination Kit, this carbon/alumina-silicate powder is applied with a mitt to equipment as well as uniforms when Airmen are hit with a chemical agent in the field. The resin then puffs up when rubbed or blotted, then removed from the surface to which it made contact. (U.S. Air Force photo by Bruce Salter)
