- Provide the important mechanical rinsing effect from the skin or eye tissue surface
- Provide a superior absorption capacity through its chelation effect on the corrosive H+ ions and the toxic F- ions restoring physiological tissue pH and rapidly normalizing the pF levels
- Prevent further absorption of the chemical and reverse the flow back to the tissue surface
