Calgonate #011-1225
Chemical Name:
Calcium Gluconate

Detailed Product Description:

CalgonateŽ is an effective 2.5% topical calcium gluconate gel that is

used for Hydrofluoric Acid (HF) burns to the body.  The active ingredient,

calcium gluconate in CalgonateŽ, combines with hydrofluoric acid to

neutralize the powerful fluoride ion.  


The immediate use of calcium gluconate gel has been known to be extremely

beneficial in reducing burn damage to bone and deep tissue, and helps relieve

pain almost immediately.


CalgonateŽ contains Calcium Gluconate USP 2.5% w/w in a clear, viscous,

colorless and odorless miscible water gel base.  It is indicated as an integral

part in relieving dermal Hydrofluoric Acid burns.  The immediate application

of the topical gel to the burn site reduces burn damage to the bone and deep tissue.


Dosage and Administration:
It is highly recommended to wash/flush the area with cool water for 15 to 20

minutes (5 minutes if Calgonate is readily available) to remove Hydrofluoric

Acid residue.  Then apply CalgonateŽ freely to the affected areas and continuously

massage into the skin.  Reapply Calgonate and massage into the affected area

every 15 minutes, until medical assistance is given.

If the acid has penetrated below the nails, CalgonateŽ should be liberally applied

over and around the nail area, and the area should be continually massaged for

15 minutes.

All HF burns should be referred to a hospital after washing and starting initial

first-aid procedures with CalgonateŽ.
