IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability: Not flammable; no special precautions necessary.
2. Ventilation: None required; no vapor emissions at normal temperatures, summer and winter.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
Product contains a surfactant; avoid prolonged skin contact. Mild eye irritant; in case of eye contact, flush with copious amounts of water. No protective clothing required. Contact treatment is to flush with water. Product is acidic (pH 3.5-4.0). Eye protection is recommended as a precaution against splashing.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 120ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 30ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 65ºF - 85ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: Separation may occur after 3 months. Separation will not affect product performance.
V. SHELF LIFE
Two years.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
To remove oily sheen from areas surrounding an oil spill, spray undiluted PX-700™ directly over area at an application rate of one gallon for every 900 to 1200 square feet of surface area. Dilute PX-700™ 25:1 for cleaning equipment and other surfaces. Either spray or immerse equipment, as applicable. Dilute PX-700™ 50:1 for immersing wildlife to remove oil.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
At normal temperatures product is free flowing and applied full strength to remove oily sheen from aquatic environments, soils, and wastewater.
3. Conditions for Use:
Water salinity, water temperature, types and ages of pollutants. Do not allow product to freeze, as separation may occur. Product may work more slowly at low temperatures. At full strength or diluted with fresh water, product will have a specific gravity lower than sea water and should float. Use of PX-700™ should aid skimming and other conventional oil recovery operations.
