IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
Keep well away from sources of ignition and heat. Avoid the accumulation of static electricity. Provide grounding.
2. Ventilation:
Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not inhale vapors, fumes, or mists. In case of inhalation, take the person into fresh air. Ensure adequate ventilation is provided if there is any risk of vapors, mists, or aerosols forming. In the event of serious problems, call a doctor or summon medical assistance urgently.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
Wear appropriate long sleeve shirts, chemical resistant gloves and goggles. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In case of contact, wash immediately with plenty of water. Avoid contact with clothing. In case of contact, wash immediately and remove contaminated clothing. Prolonged and repeated contact with the skin may cause skin disorders. In case of ingestion, do not induce vomiting to prevent aspiration into the respiratory tract.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 65ºC
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: -20ºC
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 5 - 35ºC
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: NA

V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of unopened drums of FINASOL® OSR 52 is potentially unlimited when the containers remain capped and sealed to prevent contamination and evaporation of solvents, and are stored in a place with stable temperatures and are unexposed to direct sunlight. After storage, stir the product and assure uniformity before use. Testing of FINASOL® OSR 52 is recommended every three years and then on a yearly basis to ensure it remains fit for its intended usage.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
FINASOL® OSR 52 is applied effectively by aircraft or from boats. It can also be applied by hand held sprayers as well as with backpack spray units. Spraying must not give too fine or atomized droplets as in fog. It must be done as moderately coarse droplets, with diameters in the range of 500 - 1000 µm, whether application is by surface vessel, aircraft, or land-based equipment.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
Use FINASOL® OSR 52 from 1:5 to 1:50, according to the nature of the oil, its state of weathering, temperature, thickness of the slick, and other circumstances of the spill. A 1:10 ratio would correspond appreciatively to 26 gallons per ton of oil.
Aerial spraying - FINASOL® OSR 52 is sprayed undiluted when applied from aircrafts, usually between 30 and 50 feet altitude, or at higher altitude in poor weather conditions.
Boat spraying - FINASOL® OSR 52 is sprayed undiluted using a low-pressure system. Spraying equipment providing 5 to 10% dilution of FINASOL® OSR 52 can also be used.
3. Conditions for Use:
Diluted application in low salinity water is not recommended. Use only receptacles, joints, pipes, etc. which are resistant to hydrocarbons. Do not spray at high pressure (> 3 bar). FINASOL® OSR 52 is designed to treat spills in salt water.
