These Chemical Agent Liquid Detector papers were designed to meet the need for simple, rapid method of detecting and differentiating between the 3 major groups of liquid chemical warfare agents. The detector papers can quickly determine the presence of G (nerve), V (nerve) or H (blister) agents in liquid form. The CM9 paper, provided in a dispenser roll, develops a single colour that indicates the presence of any of the above agents. The C8 paper, in a booklet of 25 sheets, will exhibit 3 colours to specifically identify the type of agent.
Testing is performed by detaching a detector paper from the roll or booklet. Expose the paper to a surface suspected of contamination by a liquid chemical agent or to the agent itself by wiping the suspected surface with the paper. The CM9 paper is complete with adhesive backing so it may be attached to a surface, which may be exposed in the future. Colour changes are compared against comparison charts to determine the presence or absence of a liquid agent.
