IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
Non-flammable.
2. Ventilation:
Special ventilation is not required.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
No special equipment required; however, goggles are recommended.
Skin contact - if irritation occurs flush with water; seek medical attention if irritation persists.
Eye contact - flush with plenty of water; seek medical attention if irritation persists.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 120ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 32ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 40 - 120ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: NA
V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life is unlimited in unopened containers.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
Sprayer, Boat, Aircraft
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
A dispersant to oil ratio ranging from 1:50 to 1:10 is recommended. For heavy high viscosity oils - 8 gallons of SAF-RON GOLD will disperse approximately 70 gallons of crude oil or bunker C. Also for use with heavy high viscosity oils, SAF-RON GOLD can be used as a concentrate or diluted at a dispersant to water ratio of 1:10. For lighter oils, SAF-RON GOLD can be diluted at mixtures of 1:20 to 1:100. A recommended dispersant to water ratio of 1:40 can be used for most spills. Ratios are dependent upon type of oil and weather conditions.
3. Conditions for Use:
Any applicable condition determined by authorities for dispersant use
