4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: NA
V. SHELF LIFE
More than 5 years in unopened original shipping container, store in a cool, dry place. Avoid moisture prior to use.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: On water, spread over contaminated area at 1 to 3 ratios. On soil, blend to depth equivalent to contamination level. On hard surfaces, spread over contaminated area. Make sure the spill is completely absorbed. For best results agitate with broom. (Will not damage cured asphalt if used as an absorbent for spills.) Remove and dispose of in accoordance with all state and federal laws, after absorption is complete.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: 1 part 001 to 3 parts hydrocarbon.
3. Conditions for Use: NA
VII. TOXICITY AND EFFECTIVENESS
