WARNING SUMMARY
You must be in full individual protective ensemble or Mission Oriented Protective
Posture, Level 4, (MOPP4) while using this system.
The Sorbent Decontamination System (M100 SDS) only removes the liquid hazard.
Decontaminated items may still present a vapor hazard. Don't unmask until it's been
determined safe to do so.
The M100 SDS cannot be decontaminated. Do not reduce MOPP level until it has been
determined safe to do so.
Sorbent powder may be slightly irritating to skin or eyes. When training, instructors and
observers should keep sorbent powder out of eyes, cuts and wounds. Use respiration
protection to avoid inhalation of sorbent powder. Wear goggles with side shields to
protect eyes.
In training, personnel should remove sorbent powder from the vehicle in accordance with

OPERATING PROCEDURES
WARNING
You must be in full individual protective ensemble or Mission Oriented Protective
Posture, Level 4, (MOPP4) while using this system.

NOTE
When you determine that your equipment, vehicle, or crew-served weapons are
contaminated with chemical agents, act quickly. Stop breathing, close eyes, don
protective mask, and perform Immediate Decontamination to yourself and
personal items using the Decontamination Kit, Skin: M291 and Decontamination
Kit, Individual Equipment: M295, respectively. Then, decontaminate your
equipment, vehicles, or crew-served weapons using the M100 SDS.
This kit is intended for Immediate Decontamination of equipment, vehicles, and
crew-served weapons. The operators wipe down technique is most effective
when done within fifteen minutes after personal wipe down.
The M100 SDS decontamination kit is to be opened immediately prior to use.
1. Locate and obtain the M100 SDS from the bracket or its storage location. Open the
case and place it within easy reach. Remove one decontamination kit from the case.
2. Open the decontamination kit at the tear notches. Remove the applicator mitt and
place it inside the case.
3. Hold sorbent pack upright. Gently shake pack to allow sorbent powder to settle to
bottom of pack.

4. Open the pack by tearing along the strip at the notch.


5. Place the opened sorbent pack in or against the case so it does not spill over.
6. Recover the applicator mitt and fluff. Place applicator mitt onto your gloved hand.
There is an elastic band inside the applicator mitt you may grasp for better control.
Pick up the sorbent pack with your free hand, so you can pour the sorbent powder
onto the applicator mitt. You may switch the applicator mitt onto either hand if your
arm becomes tired.
7. Pour a generous amount of sorbent powder onto palm of the applicator mitt and
gently shake. Sorbent powder is caught up by the fibers, but is released when you
begin the rubbing action.

0004 00-2

TM 3-4230-236-10

OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - Continued

0004 00

8. Rub sorbent powder onto target areas using primarily the palm side of the mitt.
Make sure all target areas are thoroughly contacted with sorbent powder. The more
you rub the sorbent powder onto the chemical agent areas, the more effective it is in
removing the contamination. Add more sorbent powder to the applicator mitt as
required.

CAUTION
Optical systems are extremely vulnerable to powders, which
might scratch or adversely affect the lenses. Use care when
applying the sorbent.
Sorbent powder is not designed to be used on sensitive
equipment. Use minimal amounts of powder around sensitive
equipment areas.

NOTE
Sorbent powder may begin to clump in wet conditions.
9. Decontaminate first those critical surface areas that you must touch to operate the
equipment, vehicle, or crew-served weapon. Decontaminate the other areas of your
equipment, vehicle, or crew-served weapon as your mission allows. Pay
particular attention to the areas where contamination occurs.

WARNING
The M100 SDS does not permit a reduction in MOPP level.
Personnel should remain in MOPP4 until it has been
determined safe to do so.
10. The sorbent powder absorbs chemical agents immediately to remove the liquid
hazards. Rub the area with sorbent powder until the surface appears dry. The
sorbent powder will begin to neutralize the agent. However, you must still be in
MOPP IV.

0004 00-3

TM 3-4230-236-10

OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - Continued

0004 00

NOTE
The sorbent powder continues to react with the chemical
agent. In combat, you can leave any loose powder on your
equipment, vehicle and crew-served weapons.
When applied, some surfaces may appear shiny or even wet.
Surface should be tested with M8 paper after decontamination
operations are complete to confirm or deny agent presence.
11. You may pour sorbent powder onto the top and sides of the applicator mitt in order to
effectively apply powder into cracks, crevices, corners, etc.
12. If the surface of the applicator mitt becomes caked with sorbent powder, rotate the
applicator mitt to get a clean surface.
13. For additional sorbent powder, open the second pack and continue to decontaminate
until all the critical surfaces appear free of liquid chemical contamination.

WARNING
Sorbent powder left on the vehicles may present inhalation
and ocular hazards to unmasked personnel when the vehicle
is in motion. In training, excess powder should be dusted off
the vehicle in accordance with local environmental regulations
and SOP.
The M100 SDS can NOT be decontaminated. Therefore, once
exposed to chemical agents, the M100 SDS must be
discarded before reducing MOPP level.

14. Decontaminate your protective gloves and boots by rubbing a handful of sorbent
powder onto them.
15. Upon completion of the decontamination process dispose of the ENTIRE M100
SDS.
