4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 35°F
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 50°F to 98°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: May begin freezing at or below 25°F as product begins to thaw. Mix product with agitator until product becomes homogenous.
V. SHELF LIFE
Five to ten years in sealed polydrums or totes (as delivered).
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: Product may be applied to any surface for removal of oils. Select proper dilution depending on product types and material surface prior to application. For treatment of large areas, properly diluted product may be applied by spraying with a pressure washer, portable fire pump or any other suitable pump with seawater or freshwater suction that is equipped with a chemical inductor or feed pump. For smaller areas, properly diluted product may be applied with scrubber, mop, cloth or damp sponge. Apply liberally, adjusting dilution on site as necessary.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: For heavily weathered oil on rocks, a diluted solution of 3 parts water to 1 part product is recommended. For heavily weathered oil on beaches/sand, a diluted solution of 5 parts water to 1 part product is ideal. For tar balls, no dilution is necessary and it is suggested to apply directly at full strength. For removing oil from vegetation, a diluted solution of 10/20 parts water to 1 part product is preferred. Product may be diluted with either salt water or fresh water. Warmer waters (greater than 78°F) and/or good agitation during application will require less product.
3. Conditions for Use: Best results are obtained by allowing diluted solution to soak for at least 30 minutes to soften the oil deposits. Reapplication may be necessary in severely contaminated areas. A sorbent boom or vacuum suction equipment should be positioned to collect the washed off effluent. When proper containment equipment is in place and a soaking period of at least 30 minutes has been achieved, a diluted solution of 20 parts water and 1 part product should be applied at mid-pressure (approximately 100 PSI). Adjust the pressure and angle of the hose sprayer to achieve optimum results, adjusting dilution as necessary on site. Product and effluent should be vacuumed up or absorbed in absorbent boom and disposed of according to EPA guidelines.
