A unique UV-Curing method is provided for decontamination of radioisotopes on the surfaces which has radiation dealing facilities. In this method acrylic UV-Curing resin was poured on a contaminated simulated surface followed by UV irradiation. The resin interacted with the contaminated surface and after polymerization, the solidified resin was then stripped off, leaving behind a clean surface. The present study is the proof-of-concept of a novel application of acrylic resin UV-Curing methodology for Radioactive surface contamination removal to create a economical clean, effective and safe environment with minimal waste generation post processing ready for environment friendly incineration.
