IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability: Non-flammable
2. Ventilation: None needed
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
As in handling any industrial chemical, the standard precautions of wearing chemical-resistant gloves and eye protection are recommended.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 120ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: -40ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range : 70ºF-80ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes:
Product does not lose effectiveness between temperatures of -40ºF through 120ºF, although it will become hazy if the temperature is sustained at less than 30ºF over a 24-hour period.

V. SHELF LIFE:
CN-110 has a shelf life of 2 years.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
There are no application restrictions. The preferred application method is by spraying and/or applying the product over the pollutant (primarily oil of any viscosity) on the stained area. Immediately, the product begins to work on breaking the physical bond between the oil and the object desired to be cleaned. The full effect of CN-110 on hard, porous and most non-porous materials usually takes a minimum of 30 minutes with a maximum retention time of 60 minutes. Then the freed oil is sprayed off with available water. The oil is then safely and effectively skimmed without dispersed oil remaining in the affected waters.
If "herding" or "corraling" a slick is desired, CN-110 can also be applied without the increased toxicities by dispersing minute particles of oil into the affected water stream.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
Application concentration for cleaning shorelines is approximately 1 gallon per 75-100 square feet of affected area. Depending on depths of shorelines, this amount will give a residual of much less than 1 ppm of CN-110 in the affected waters. This residual should be lower than the toxicity of the spilled oil.
If "herding" is desired, the application concentration should be in its original state while either spraying CN-110 around the slick or dropping small amounts from a plane. The resulting residual concentration in this case should be the same as shoreline cleaning or less.
If it is desired that CN-110 be added to a high-pressure cleaning system or steam, the dilution rate should be no lower than 10%. This will lower the CN-110 residual in the affected waters to the parts per billion range.
3. Conditions for Use:
Preferably fresh water, at temperature of 32ºF
