Toxic and harmful substances can pollute the air and object surface after chemical accidents. Toxic gas is omnipresent in the contaminated zone and poisonous liquid can penetrate into the depth of surface caused by pollution. This will last for a few hours, more than a few days, months or even longer, the ecological environment will be seriously polluted. So the efficient and fast decontamination is needed after chemical accident, decontamination work is an important part of chemical accident disposal work, which can prevent chemical accidents secondary disasters effectively.
