Rigid (35 index)

Rigid Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
Frigid’s Rigid is a 35 index arterial fluid designed to furnish a firm body. It includes a unique blend of buffers, humectants and plasticizers to help modify the harshness of the formaldehyde. Rigid features a very effective surfactant for thorough distribution and deep penetration of the body tissues. Besides being excellent for “normal” cases, it is essential for the treatment of cases where decomposition is advanced or for cancer cases where nitrogenous body wastes have accumulated and tend to neutralize the action of the formaldehyde. It is the fluid of choice for cases when there will be an extended gap between death and burial.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use 10 to 12 ounces of Rigid per gallon of diluted fluid. On difficult cases or extended stay cases, we recommend using at least 16 or more ounces per gallon of diluted fluid.

In hard water areas, use 2 to 4 ounces per gallon of Water/Clot Guard. Also use Water/Clot Guard when moderate to heavy clotting is anticipated or distribution seems to be poor.

36 Plus (33 index)

36 Plus Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
If your prep room is attached to a septic system you should use TISSUE GUARD 32 in place of 36 Plus due to the fact that ethylene dichloride has been deemed unsafe for septic systems.

36 Plus is our best selling fluid. It is a high index general purpose arterial fluid that assures preservation and pleasing results with both normal and difficult cases. Its special blend of penetrants helps the formaldehyde reach all parts of the circulatory system assuring thorough tissue saturation and complete preservation. 36 Plus combines the use of unique chemicals which modify the effect of formaldehyde and retain moisture so that a firm body is produced. With 36 Plus the body is free of tissue burn and “pruning” frequently associated with high formaldehyde fluids.

Because 36 Plus contains Stop, it is particularly effective on cases where tissue gas may be a problem. The Stop also assures deep tissue penetration to help preserve frozen, decomposed, and other difficult cases.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, where normal firmness is desired, 5 or 6 ounces of 36 Plus is recommended in the first gallon of cool water. The number of ounces of fluid can then be adjusted in the second and subsequent gallons of diluted fluid as the body and the desires of the embalmer dictate. Where a high degree of firmness is desired, 8 to 12 ounces of 36 Plus per gallon of water can be used. For difficult bodies, where there is evidence of extensive chemotherapy or evidence of decomposition, anywhere from 16 to 24 ounces of 36 Plus may be used. After injection of the first gallon of diluted fluid, the embalmer should proceed as professional judgement dictates.

Standard (32 index)

Standard Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
For the most difficult cases we recommend 32 index Standard arterial fluid. This fluid contains a high level of formaldehyde, the most effective and efficient preservative chemical available. Standard also is formulated with a generous amount of formaldehyde modifier and humectant to control dehydration. Because of these modifiers and the inclusion of unique salts and buffers, Standard can be used for routine embalming as well as for the most difficult cases. The addition of special salts enhances the action of Standard so that its preservative power exceeds that normally expected of a 32 index arterial.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID To embalm normal cases, use Standard at a dilution of 6 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. The addition of 2 to 4 ounces of Water/Clot Guard assures even better penetration and distribution. For difficult cases, where stronger preservation is needed, use 10 to 16 ounces per gallon of water or as professional judgement dictates.

Tissue Guard 32 (32 index)

Tissue Guard 32 Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
Tissue Guard 32 Plus has been reformulated as a result of a recent finding that the chemical ethylene dichloride is not safe for septic systems. This chemical has been removed from the fluid and the name has been changed to Tissue Guard 32. If your prep room is attached to a septic system then you should use this fluid in place of 36 Plus.

Use of Tissue Guard 32 results in a firm but not overly hard body. The effect of a special blend of humectant chemicals and water-soluble lanolin modifies this 32 index arterial fluid so that the body retains some flexibility and natural feel. Its special dye system, the TISSUE GUARD SYSTEM, is designed to give a warm, even cosmetic effect; not the harsh effect sometimes obtained using unmodified dyes.

We’ve armed this fluid with a particularly effective wetting agent. The wetting agent assures thorough distribution and deep penetration of body tissues for lasting preservation.

I like to mix this product with Natural Tone 20. The index with the color of Tissue Guard and the Silicone in the Natural Tone make for a perfect embalming without dehydration. I have held bodies for weeks without dehydration.

HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use 8 to 10 ounces of Tissue Guard 32 per gallon of water. For difficult cases, 12 to 16 ounces can be used in accordance with professional judgement. In hard water areas, add 2 to 4 ounces of Water/Clot Guard. Also add Water/Clot Guard when moderate to heavy clotting is anticipated or distribution seems to be poor.

Cell Guard 28 Natural (28 index)

Cell Guard 28 Natural
DISCONTINUED
Due to low demand, Cell Guard 28 Natural has been discontinued. As an alternative, we recommend either Tissue Guard 32 or Eotone.

Eotone (27 index)

Eotone Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
When a slightly firmer body is desired or a case calls for a little more preservative than is normally available in a 20 to 25 index fluid, Eotone arterial fluid is the answer. Eotone is a 27 index arterial with good preservative power. It contains buffers and humectants to moderately modify its formaldehyde level. Eotone gives an even, light pink coloration to the skin.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use Eotone at a dilution of 6 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. To enhance its penetration add 2 to 4 ounces of Water/Clot Guard. As a general rule, use at least 1 gallon of diluted arterial fluid for each 50 pounds of body weight and inject using the intermittent drainage technique. This assures sufficient moisture content in the body and thorough distribution of the fluid. For more difficult cases, use 10 to 16 ounces of Eotone per gallon or as professional judgement dictates.

Cell Guard 25 Natural (25 index)

Cell Guard 25 Arterial
DISCONTINUED
Due to low demand, Cell Guard 25 Natural has been discontinued. As an alternative, we recommend Lanol-Tex, Natural Tone or Flotone.

Flotone (25 index)

Flotone Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
Containing three disinfecting and preserving agents, 25 index Flotone arterial fluid gives the embalmer the perfect tool for a medium firm body. Modifying chemicals work to ease the harsh effect of formaldehyde and prevent deyhdration. Special buffering materials assure proper distribution and hold the pH close to the optimum for good formaldehyde action. Flotone’s blend of dyes furnish a natural skin tone without blotching. The embalmer can have confidence in obtaining preservation with medium firming, protection against dehydration, and a pleasant skin color.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID Use Flotone at a dilution of 6 to 10 ounces per gallon of water. Use at least 1 gallon of diluted fluid for each 50 pounds of body weight. For larger or decomposing remains, use at higher concentrations as professional judgment dictates. The alternate injection and drainage or intermittent drainage techniques are recommended when using Flotone.

Lanol-Tex (22 index)

Lanol-Tex Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
When the soft, smooth skin texture supplied by lanolin is desired, Lanol-Tex arterial fluid is the choice. Containing one of the highest amounts of lanolin available in an arterial fluid, Lanol-Tex is an especially good fluid for dry, emaciated cases as well as those that may need some extra protection from dehydration. Besides the high lanolin content, Lanol-Tex also contains two other excellent modifiers that provide further protection from dehydration and furnish a more pliable tissue texture.

Lanol-Tex is excellent for all normal cases. At 22 index it has sufficient formaldehyde for most cases and it is fortified with two additional disinfectant/preservatives to assure good holding power. A moderate to medium firm body is the result with a pleasing moist skin texture and a soft pink, uniform coloration.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use Lanol-Tex at a dilution of 6 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. Be sure to use the intermittent drainage technique, especially with emaciated cases, in order to keep the moisture level up in the body and to prevent the formation of dark areas on the cheeks, etc. due to dehydration. For more difficult cases because of decomposition or larger size, use a higher concentration of Lanol-Tex as professional judgment dictates.

X-20 (20 index)

X-20 Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
A 20 index arterial fluid, X-20 provides a soft but well-preserved and life-like feel and appearance to the body and skin. X-20 contains six ingredients, including silicone oils, which modify the harsh effects of formaldehyde. The embalmer can be sure of both an excellent cosmetic effect and a particularly pleasant result - a thoroughly embalmed body of mild firmness and uniform color with a natural, moist feel to the skin.

Mildly buffered to help keep the formaldehyde base at optimum preservation power, X-20 penetrates and distributes well. The preservatives and modifiers are carried into the tissue to give it a plasticized feel with the proper formaldehyde content for good preservation.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use X-20 at a dilution of 6 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. Use at least 1 gallon of diluted fluid per 50 pounds of body weight. A lower concentration should be considered for emaciated cases. For larger cases where decomposition has started, 8 to 16 ounces per gallon should be considered according to the embalmber’s professional judgment. The alternate injection and drainage technique or intermittent drainage technique should be used in all cases to insure thorough distribution of the fluid. Shake well before using.

Natural Tone (20 index)

Natural Tone Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
Natural Tone is a 20 index arterial fluid which furnishes a life-like skin texture and color. Containing silicone, Natural Tone penetrates amazingly well. The silicone combined with a mild but very effective buffer system results in an excellent and uniform cosmetic effect. The feel of the skin is soft, smooth, and natural.

Not only does Natural Tone produce an especially pleasing cosmetic effect but its unique blend of silicone, buffers, and humectants result in a mildly firm body with a smooth, moist feel. Preservation is assured because Natural Tone penetrates and distributes so evenly and well. Preservation is also assured because it utilizes formaldehyde, the most effective embalming preservative, as its primary ingredient.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases use Natural Tone at a dilution of 5 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. For very small bodies, 4 to 6 ounces per gallon may be sufficient depending on the condition of the body.

Perfect Tone (18 index)

Perfect Tone Arterial
CHARACTERISTICS AND FEATURES Sold 24 bottles/case
Perfect Tone arterial fluid is our answer to a low formaldehyde content arterial that gives a soft, smooth cosmetic effect and a thoroughly embalmed body. An 18 index fluid, Perfect Tone combines the effectiveness of formaldehyde with the distributing and modifying effects of silicone and lanolin. The soft, pastel coloring and uniform distribution are prime characteristics of good embalming. The tissue is moist and life-like with a soft to medium firm texture. Dehydration is not a problem with Perfect Tone.
HOW TO USE THE FLUID For normal cases, use Perfect Tone in a dilution of 6 to 8 ounces per gallon of water. For small or emaciated bodies, use at 4 to 8 ounces per gallon with the alternate injection and drainage technique or the intermittent drainage technique. Open drainage is not recommended, especially in the last gallon. For added color our Rose Colortone is recommended. Shake well before using Perfect Tone.

During my case analysis of a partially decomposed gentleman, I knew that I needed a higher index, well performing fluid. "36 Plus" was the fluid for that particular case. Outstanding immediate results and even better results as time progressed. Thank you, once again, for the free sample case.
