1. Flammability: Non-flammable.
2. Ventilation: Use adequate ventilation. Treat product as a hygroscopic powder.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: Avoid contact with eyes and do not take internally. Upon contact with eyes, flush with plenty of fresh water. Avoid breathing dust. Normal protective equipment for handling of powder, such as a dust mask and eye shield can be used.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 105°F
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: NA
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 0°F - 68°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: NA
V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of the product is approximately 2 years if stored in a cool dry area.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
JE1058BS contains biosurfactant and has an ability to stimulate the biodedgradation of oil by indigenous microorganisms. JE1058BS, which is a powder, can be applied using conventional spraying equipment, for example a powder mist duster attached with boom type multi-hole head.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
JE1058BS is applied in a product:oil ratio of 1:10. No pre-mixing or dilution by water is required.
3. Conditions for Use:
JE1058BS may be used in a wide range of environmental conditions of temperature and salinities where natural populations of oil-degrading microbes are active. The mechanical removal of as much oil as possible should be done before the product is introduced to the slick.
VII. TOXICITY AND EFFECTIVENESS

a. Effectiveness:
