3. Skin and eye contact: protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: In case of contact with eyes, wash thoroughly with plenty of clean water. Seek medical attention if irritation develops. Rubber protective gloves should be used if prolonged use of product is anticipated. Goggles, long sleeve shirt, and rubber gloves are recommended during application.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 170°F
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 32°F
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 40°F to 110°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: Marine D-Blue Clean™ has a pour point of 30°F and may cause chemical changes at temperatures >110°F.

V. SHELF LIFE
Marine D-Blue Clean™ has a shelf life of ≥ 2 years, if unopened. Cleaner older than 24 months may still be viable. Ensure product is mixed well and then inspect to confirm the product is suitable for application. The product will not lose effectiveness unless the temperatures in >140°F.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: Sprayer, boat, aircraft. Marine D-Blue Clean™ is to be used to disperse petroleum-based products in salt water. It may be applied by any conventional methods such as aerial spraying or surface vessel spraying, to accommodate weather conditions. Marine D-Blue Clean™ is to be applied undiluted, for aerial spraying. Timely application provides optimal results. Spray concentrated on the oil slick in atomized form such as with a manual pump or a pump system using moderately coarse droplets rather than a fine mist.
2. Concentration/Application Rate: Marine D-Blue Clean™ can be applied with a variety of spraying equipment, depending upon the type and scale of the water to be cleaned. For heavy concentrations of crude oil spill or temperatures below 40°F, Marine D-Blue Clean™ should be used without dilution in neat form. A dispersant to oil ratio up to 1 part dispersant to 20 parts of oil is suggested. Dose rates may vary depending on type and amount of petroleum spilled, and other site specific conditions such as weather, temperatures and extent of oil slick.
3. Conditions for Use: The performance of Marine D-Blue Clean™ is not affected by water salinity. Marine D-Blue Clean™ is useful on oil spills in salt water. It is effective with crude and residual heavy oil spills.
