4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 21ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 32ºF to 86ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes:
Phase separation does not relate to temperatures. Chemical changes may occur at temperatures above 194ºF.

V. SHELF LIFE
The shelf life of MARE CLEAN 200 is 10 years when stored indoors. (Container will deteriorate before contents.)

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
Sprinkle the dispersant on the oil spill, then 5-10 minutes later stir the surface intensively. For convenience, MARE CLEAN 200 may be diluted with water if desired.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
Use 53-66 gallons of MARE CLEAN 200 per ton of oil
