IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability: Combustible as defined by DOT and USCG.
2. Ventilation: Use in well ventilated areas.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: Protective clothing is recommended. Avoid eye contact. In case of eye contact, immediately flush with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes. Get prompt medical attention. Avoid direct contact with skin and clothing. In case of skin contact, immediately flush with large amounts of water. Remove contaminated clothing, including shoes, after flushing has begun. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. For open systems were contact is likely, wear long sleeve shirt, chemical resistant gloves, and protective chemical goggles.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 130°F/55°C
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 30°F/-1°C
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 40°F to 100°F/4°C to 38°C
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: None

V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of unopened drums of ACCELL® CLEAN DWD is unlimited. Containers should always remain capped when not in use to prevent contamination and evaporation.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: Aircrafts provide the most rapid method of applying dispersants to an oil spill and a variety of aircraft can be used for spraying. For aerial spraying, ACCELL® CLEAN DWD is applied undiluted. Typically application altitudes of 30 to 50 feet are recommended, although higher altitudes may be effective under certain conditions. Actual effective altitudes will depend on the application equipment, weather and aircraft. Careful selection of spray nozzles is critical to achieve desired dose levels, since droplet size must be controlled. A quarter-inch open pipe may be all that is necessary if the aircraft travels at 120 mph (104 knots) or more, since the air shear at these speeds will be sufficient to break the dispersant into the proper sized droplets. Agricultural spray delivery systems may not be suitable because to too fine of spray and too little delivery of ACCELL® CLEAN DWD to the affected area.

Boat Spraying: ACCELL® CLEAN DWD may also be applied from boats equipped with spray booms mounted ahead of the bow wake or as far forward as possible. The most effective method of application from a boat is to apply ACCELL® CLEAN DWD using a low-volume, low-pressure pump so the ACCELL® CLEAN DWD can be applied undiluted. ACCELL® CLEAN DWD should not be fogged or atomized. Natural wave or boat wake action usually provides adequate mixing energy to disperse the oil. Application at sub-freezing temperatures may require larger nozzle, supply lines and orifices due to higher product viscosity.

2. Concentration/Application Rate: A treatment rate of about 10 gallons per acre, or a dispersant to oil ratio of 1:10 is optimal. The rate varies depending on the type of oil, degree of weathering, temperatures, and thickness of the slick.

3. Conditions for Use: For optimal results, ACCELL® CLEAN DWD early treatment of oil-contaminated waters is beneficial. ACCELL® CLEAN DWD can be used on weathered oils.
