The M8 Chemical Agent Detector Paper is used to detect the presence of liquid VGH chemical agents. There are three sensitive indicator dyes suspended in the paper matrix. When a sheet is brought into contact with liquid nerve or blister agents, they react with chemicals in the paper to produce agent-specific color changes. There is a color chart inside the front cover of the booklet to compare the contact results to determine the type of agent. The V-type nerve agent turns M8 paper dark green, and G-type nerve agents turn it yellow. H-type blister agents will turn the M8 paper red in color.
The M8 Paper is issued in a book of 25 chemicallytreated, dye-impregnated tan sheets. The sheets are perforated for easy removal. The book is heat-sealed in a polyethylene envelope. Detach a sheet and attach it to clothing, or place it on a surface so it can be exposed to drops of liquid splash of chemical agents. If colored spots appear, a chemical agent is present. The paper may also be used detect liquid contamination by placing the paper in contact with the suspected surface.
