CARULITE® 500 catalyst is used to effectively destroy ethylene oxide emissions resulting from sterilization of medical equipment and supplies. The catalyst converts toxic ethylene oxide, at low temperatures, to carbon dioxide and water.
Although CARULITE 500 catalyst is not a hazardous substance, it should be handled with care. Protective equipment in handling should include safety glasses or goggles and rubber or plastic gloves. In cases where high dust exposure may exist, the use of NIOSH-MSHA dust respirator or an air-supplied respirator is advised.
