Embalmer's tips:

  • Always great to have around the prep room as an additive fluid to partner with other Arterials for added firmness.
  • Great for ship outs, delayed burial and trauma.

How to Use

Rigid (35 index)
Normal cases: use 10 to 12 ounces of Rigid per gallon of diluted fluid.

Difficult cases or extended stay cases: use at least 16 or more ounces per gallon of diluted fluid.

Special Circumstances:

  • If the body displays medium to severe discoloration of the face and hands, it is best to start with a mild solution to clear lividity then increase strength to desired firmness.
  • Use Water/Clot Guard when moderate to heavy clotting is anticipated or distribution seems to be poor.
  • Free Flo or Plasma Flo may be used as a co-injection if congealed or clotted blood is anticipated.

Other Considerations:

In hard water areas add 2 to 4 ounces per gallon of Water/Clot Guard.

Additional Uses:

Rigid is also effective as a co-injection to other embalming solutions to increase firmness as desired by the embalmer.
