VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: PETRO-CLEAN is applied through power washers or even garden type sprayers in light dilution is very effective in removing petrochemical hydrocarbons from rocks, shorelines, sea walls, bridges, and highways. In wetland applications, PETRO-CLEAN prevents hydrocarbons from attaching to grasses, trees, rocks, etc.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: Dilute or use eductors to specified rate and apply through fire hose, power washers, or sprayers to contaminated area. PETRO-CLEAN is a highly concentrated product and must be diluted before use. Dilution ratios vary depending on the specific conditions of the contaminated site. Normal recommended dilutions are from 0.5% to 6%. On heavy or weathered crude, pre-soaking with 6% may be necessary. For light or refined products, apply as 3% to 6% solution. For sheens on water apply a 0.5% to 1.0% solution.
3. Conditions for Use: May be used with salt or fresh water
