    (What is a Work Item?)

    WK44735

    1. Scope

    This test method is intended to provide a basis for testing of materials used to immobilize radioactive contamination and facilitate subsequent decontamination.

    Test methods are needed to evaluate containment coatings for radioactive contamination to contain the hazard and minimize risk to people and the environment. First responders and recovery personnel for radioactive contamination events are the potential users of the end product, while the entities developing the coatings need the test methods.
