IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
IMO: Non-flammable
DOT: Non-hazardous
2. Ventilation:
Use with ventilation equal to unobstructed outdoors in a moderate breeze.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
Avoid skin and clothing contact. If skin contact occurs, immediately wash with large amounts of soap and water (if possible). Remove any contaminated clothing and shoes. Launder before reusing. If irritation persists, seek medical assistance. For areas where contact is likely, wear long sleeve shirt, chemical resistant gloves, and chemical resistant goggles.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 120ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: - 4ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 32ºF to 90ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: None

V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of unopened drums of JD-109 in unlimited. Containers should be capped when not being used to prevent contamination and evaporation.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: The most rapid and effective method of applying JD-109 to a oil spill is by spraying. Temperature ranges for application should not drop below 32ºF or exceed 120ºF.
Aerial Spraying - Typical application altitudes of 30 to 50 feet are advised although higher altitudes may be used if conditions warrant. Spray nozzle should be about ¼ inch in diameter flying at 104 knots or more to create enough air shear sufficient to break the dispersant into proper sized droplets. A ½ inch diameter nozzle may be needed for temperatures below 50ºF.
Boat Spraying - JD-109 can also be applied by workboats with spray booms mounted as far forward as possible of the bow or wake. The most effective application from a workboat is a low-volume, low-pressure pump.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: A treatment rate of about 2 to 10 U.S. gallons (7.6 to 37.9 liters) per acre (4,840 square meters) or a dispersant to oil ratio of 1:50 to 1:10 is recommended. The rate may vary depending on the type of oil, degree of weathering, temperature, and thickness of slick.
3. Conditions for Use: As with any oil related spill, timely application of a dispersant will ensure the highest degree of success. Timely treatment with JD-109, even at low application rates, can counter the "mousse" forming effect of the spilled oil.
