3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: Avoid contact with eyes, in case of contact rinse with fresh water. Do not ingest. If swallowed do not induce vomiting and contact a doctor immediately. Use normal protective equipment for handling powder, such as a mask or eye shield. If eye or skin irritation occurs, flush with plenty of fresh water.

4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 52°F or 20°C
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 77°F or 25°C and 95°F or 35°C
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: >104°F or 40°C

V. SHELF LIFE
Two years if stored in dry, fresh environment.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: Tulxa can be applied using conventional spraying equipment using low to moderate pressure. Tulxa can be applied directly to any surfaces coated with oil (e.g., beaches, rocks, plants).
2. Concentration/Application Rate: Tulxa can be diluted with fresh water up to a ratio of 1:200. Higher concentration of Tulxa may be required for weathered oils. Optimum concentration should be determined on site based on the type and age of the oil being removed. The product is fully miscible with water with minimal mixing.
3. Conditions for Use: It is recommended to do a test to measure the amount of oils removed and check the time and dilution at which the fats are separated. The product should completely separate the oils in 25 minutes. Although, it may be necessary to let the mixture stay in contact with surface for a longer period of time depending on the type and age of the oil. Residue should be collected and disposed of in accordance with local, state, and federal practices and laws.
