IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
Non-flammable.
2. Ventilation:
Use normal household type ventilation when storing and handling.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. In the event of contact, flush with clean water. Prolonged contact with skin can cause drying. Treat skin with common hand lotion. The use of gloves and goggles is recommended.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 140ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 26ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature: 40ºF to 110ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes:
No phase separations or chemical changes within storage temperature range.

V. SHELF LIFE
PETRO-GREEN ADP-7 has an indefinite shelf life.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
For spills on soils, sandy or rocky areas: The ADP-7 can be pre-mixed into water, or educted into a water flow, to be sprayed directly onto the oil spill.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
For spills on land: Typical dilution is one gallon of ADP-7 diluted in one barrel (42 gallons) of water (about 2.4%), which is enough to wash one barrel of oil on the surface. After loose oil is vacuumed off soil surfaces, the application rate is 100 barrels of solution per acre.
3. Conditions for Use:
The conditions for each spill dictate proper choice of surface washing agent. PETRO-GREEN ADP-7 has been tested in both tropical and arctic environments, as well as with fresh water and a variety of produced water salinities. It has been found to be effective over these ranges.
PETRO-GREEN ADP-7 has also been tested on a wide variety of fresh crude oil and product spills. There are no specific limitations to use, however, and an aged spill is likely to be non-responsive as it would be to any environmentally sound surface washing agent. For aged or asphaltic spills, the solution may be heated to 150ºF in a hot water washing rig, or a common oil field "hot oiler" truck to increase effectiveness.
