Decontamination characteristics of urban building surfaces, based on the covering of clay suspensions, have been studied. The cation converting conditions of clay suspensions were determined by a flocculation series test. Contaminated specimens for test purposes were pre- pared by application of a radioactive solution which had been extracted from the soil of a 2km zone of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant (ChNPP). The results of this study show that clay suspension technology was effective for decontamination of an urban environment. Especially, K-NH4 clay suspension shows good decontamination performance.
