IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability: Non-flammable (DOT: Non-hazardous)
2. Ventilation: Use in a well ventilated area.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: Prevent eye contact, wear safety glasses or goggles. If eye contact occurs remove contact lenses at once. Flush with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists seek medical attention. Prevent skin contact, nitrile gloves are recommended. Boots, aprons, or bodysuits should be worn as necessary. Contact with product may cause slight redness. Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause drying of skin. If skin contact occurs wash affected area with copious amounts of soap and water. Respiratory protection is not normally required. If adequate ventilation is unavailable use NIOSH approved air-purifying respirator with organic vapor cartridge or canister. The product is not likely toxic. If ingestion occurs DO NOT induce vomiting. Rinse mouth thoroughly with water. Offer water to drink. DO NOT administer anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: Should not exceed 110°F (43.3°C)
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: Above 41°F (5°C)
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: Between 41°F and 110°F (5°C to 43.3°C)
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: Stable. There is no known temperature within the maximum and minimum storage temperature that would cause phase separation, chemical changes, or other known alterations to the effectiveness of the product.
V. SHELF LIFE
Indefinite, product will not degrade over time.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP is an aqueous based liquid without solids that can be readily applied through standard spray equipments. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP is suited for treating oil shorelines, sensitive environments, and for treating access limited areas. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP may be applied directly to oil on shoreline, beaches, rocks, or marsh surfaces by agricultural or standard sprayers attached to all terrain vehicles (ATVs), or workboats equipped with spray booms. The preferred and most effective method of application is to use a low-volume, low-pressure pump.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: The product can be applied undiluted to the spilled oil. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP should be applied as droplets, not fogged or atomized. System Calibration – Spray systems should be calibrated to insure accurate application rates for successful application and dosage control.
3. Conditions for Use: VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP is sprayed directly on oil coated materials; and can be used on fresh or aged oil or oil combinations. Application may be limited at sub-freezing temperatures (<31°F) without inclusion of antifreeze additives. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP can be applied at temperatures above freezing without notable changes in viscosity with increasing temperature. Application is not affected by increasing salinity. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP can be used at temperatures above freezing and at temperatures above 70°F. VERU-SOLVE™ MARINE 200 HP will separate the oil and water from the sand or soiled surface. Cleaning of oil soaked surfaces should be done in a contained area and residue should be collected. For sand or vegetation cleaning, a berm may be constructed down slope that will collect the residue for disposal. Oil that has separated from sand or vegetation may be recovered from the substrate and collected for disposal. All disposal of residue should be done in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations. In general, the technique used for the collection of the oil/product residue should be determined by the On-Scene Coordinator based on the environment of the area to be cleaned, equipment and materials available for collection, and disposal regulations.
