VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method: TXCHEM HE-1000™ is applied by pressure sprayer, heated pressure washer, fire hoses or mixing on or into hydrocarbon contaminated media.

2. Concentration/Application Rate: TXCHEM HE-1000™ should be diluted to a one (1) part concentrated chemical to ten (10) parts water solution. Apply ten to fifteen gallons of diluted solution to one cubic yard of contaminated media. Agitate to slurry. Dilution rate may change due to level of hydrocarbon contamination. Please see manufacturer’s instructions for additional application dilutions. Excess washing solution should be disposed of according to local, state, and federal regulations.

3. Conditions for Use: Pollutants should be of hydrocarbon in nature. Greater results occur at ambient temperatures greater than 50°F. Fresh or salt water can be used with no performance change.
