Hero Wipes announces top-of-the-line fire protection wipes against cancer-causing carcinogens
9 January 2019 -

Decontamination wipes supplier Hero Wipes revealed on Tuesday that its Hero Wipes products can now remove up to 99.7% of lead contaminants from skin as well as up to 90% of known carcinogens found in soot.

Public safety professionals, including firefighters and law enforcement personnel, are put at great risk daily from exposure to cancer-causing carcinogens. Firefighters responding to structure fires are exposed not only to potentially carcinogenic soot but lead contaminants coming from household furnishings, carpets and appliances, exposure of gunshot residue as well as lack of proper decontamination.

Assembled in the USA and EWG verified, Hero Wipes has been formulated, tested and proven to remove carcinogenic soot and lead contaminants in the same wipe.

Launched in 2017, Hero Wipes is the first on-scene decontamination wipe to have its unique formulation, a patent-pending blend of ingredients that works to isolate harmful toxins and carcinogens, scientifically tested for effectiveness in their removal. Hero Wipes is proven effective to remove up to 90% of benzopyrene, commonly found in soot and up to 69% of TCEP, the most common toxic flame retardant, in just a single swipe.
