This one-time use, time-saving, all-in-one kit contains everything needed for safe and effective cleanup of a compact fluorescent light (CFL) breakage and truly decontaminates the area. With our one-time use kits, you can be confident about the cleanup and worry-free about long-term exposure effects for people and pets.

Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs) are energy efficient bulbs that contain mercury vapor, the most harmful form of mercury for living, breathing organisms. Inhalation of high exposures of mercury vapor can cause sudden effects such as, headaches, cough, chest pain, soreness of mouth, loss of teeth, nausea and diarrhea. Long-term exposure can also lead to permanent lung scarring and kidney damage. The side effects develop gradually and are associated with central nervous system functions.

Although CFLs contain a very small amount of mercury vapor, proper cleanup will help reduce the risks associated with exposure.

Acton Technologies' HgX® product is a true decontaminant of mercury and mercury vapor. When employed, HgX® reacts rapidly forming a film over the nearly invisible mercury and reacting to produce a non-vaporizing sulfide. HgX® is not harmful; none of its components are classified as toxic. When particles of HgX® are left on cleaned surfaces, these particles are reactivated during subsequent cleaning sessions and continually work for you.

Acton Technologies' CFL Clean-up Kit is everything one needs to take care of a minor breakage and truly decontaminate the area. With our one-time use kits, you can be confident about the clean up and need not worry about long term exposure effects for children, pets and loved ones.

What Is HgX®?
  • HgX® is the industry standard in mercury decontamination.
  • HgX® is an inexpensive soluble metallic-mercury-sulfide converting powder in combination with a chelating compound and dispersing agent.
  • When mixed with water as directed, HgX® will substantially reduce mercury contaminations in the air.

How Does HgX® Work?
  • HgX® acts rapidly, forming a film over the finely divided globules of mercury and reacting to produce a non-vaporizing sulfide.
  • HgX® keeps working! Particles of HgX® left on cleaned surfaces are reactivated during subsequent cleaning applications.

Is HgX® Safe?
  • HgX® is not harmful. None of its components is classified as toxic. Plus, it leaves no odor and no allergic reactions to it have ever been reported…even after continuous use under various conditions.
  • HgX® is stable. Supplied in 1.5 lb cans and 5, 10 and 20 lb plastic pails with polyethylene inner liners, and in 150 lb drums, it can be stored indefinitely without loss of activity.

How Does HgX® React with Metals?
  • Aluminum or stainless steel - No reaction or rusting
  • Tin or copper - No aggressive reaction or damage; color change might occur
  • Galvanized metals -Moderate reaction
  • Iron, carbonized steel or ferric metals (iron based) - Aggressive oxidizing will occur
