SRNL, FIU Collaborate on Fixative Testing to Better Stabilize Contamination

SRNL, FIU Collaborate on Fixative Testing to Better Stabilize Contamination

AIKEN, S.C. – EM’s Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) and Florida International University (FIU) are teaming to examine a range of fixative and coating materials that could be a major improvement to help stabilize residual contamination in excess nuclear facilities. “Once you’ve ‘fixed’ the residual radioactive material in a building and/or a surface, you’ve substantially reduced risk and potential worker exposure,” SRNL engineer Michael Serrato said. “You’ve also created a much more stable envelope…
