IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
Product will not burn unless preheated. Avoid elevated temperatures (> 200ºF) for extended periods (> 5 days). Product has a tendency to accumulate a static charge during transport, which is a potential fire hazard if used near flammables.
2. Ventilation:
Avoid generating dust clouds.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
May cause mild mechanical irritation to eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Dust may cause coughing and watery eyes. Pre-existing eye, skin and respiratory disorders may be aggravated by this product. Wear NIOSH-approved respirator to prevent overexposure. Refer to transitional occupational exposure limits establiished by OSHA in 29CFR 1910.1000. Flush eyes with water; wash skin with soap and water; if molten, treat as for burns. Remove person(s) to fresh air if excessive amounts of dust have been inhaled. Protective gloves and safety glasses should be worn. If material is released or spilled, sweep up or vacuum and place in an approved container.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 200ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: None
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: < 200ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: > 450ºF


V. SHELF LIFE
Unlimited.


VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
Spills on Water - For spills on water, surround the spill with WASTE-SET® 3200 to prevent migration. Reinforce containment line with a boom or sweep if necessary. WASTE-SET® and the resulting reacted material will float. If the interior of the diked spill is not to be reclaimed, fill in the remaining surface area of the spill by broadcasting additional WASTE-SET® 3200 evenly over the spill until the WASTE-SET® no longer reacts with the spill. Alternatively, the product may be introduced under the surface of the spill to rise and react with oils in the suspension layer. WASTE-SET® can then be swept or netted from the surface of the water.
Spills on Hard Surfaces - For spills on hard surfaces, apply WASTE-SET 3200® heavily to perimeter of spill to prevent migration. After surrounding the spill, reinforcement of the containment line thus formed with a boom or sweep may be advisable depending on the volume and flow rate. If the interior of the diked spill is not to be reclaimed, fill in the remaining surface of the spilled material by evenly distributing additional WASTE-SET 3200® until the WASTE-SET® no longer reacts with the spill and remains white and on the surface.
Disposal - Dispose of reacted material in accordance with local, state, and federal regulation. Under the EPA Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedures (TCLP), WASTE-SET encapsulated material may be eligible for disposal in landfills. Incineration results in extremely low ash content. Dependent upon the nature of the encapsulated material, it may also be disposed of by incorporation into synthetic surfaces such as asphalt. WASTE-SET® will effectively "encapsulate" crude oil and petroleum-based products, such as gasoline, kerosene, and diesel fuel; in addition to the various following liquid and vapor-phase contaminants:
Aliphatic hydrocarbons Esters
Aromatic hydrocarbons Ethers
Clorinated hydrocarbons Ketones
Alcohols Other hydrocarbons
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
One pound WASTE-SET® per five pounds of oil (May vary with viscosity and temperature).
3. Conditions for Use:
No limitations.
