IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION

1. Flammability: Non-Flammable
2. Ventilation: Work in well ventilated area. Avoid excessive inhalation of fine particles.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective covering; treatment in case of contact: Avoid contact to eyes. Do not breathe. Wear protective goggles, gloves and clothing. Following skin contact, wash with plenty of soap and water. Remove exposed or contaminated clothing, taking care not to contaminate the eyes. Please seek medical attention if adverse effects continue after flushing. Following eye contact, remove contact lenses (if necessary) and rinse with gently running water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention. Following ingestion, call physician or poison control center for most current information. If professional advice is not available, do not induce vomiting. Drink large quantities of water. Following inhalation, move to fresh air location. Seek medical attention if adverse symptoms continue after removal to fresh air.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 140°F
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: -40°F
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: -40°F to 140°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: None

V. SHELF LIFE

The shelf life of CAS 100© is 1 year from date of production if stored in a dry dark location. Keep material stored in original containers in a dark, dry area until use. If the product is exposed to UV rays consistently, it will degrade over time.

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE

1. Application Method: In powder form, apply CAS 100© along the outer edges of spill area to prevent migration. Continue to apply CAS 100© inside spill area until the area is saturated with product. Depending on type of hydrocarbon, the resulting oil/CAS 100© mixture can be rolled up like a carpet or clumps of the solid can be removed with a net. In pad form, booms can be used to prevent migration of oil spill. Pads can be used to clean up the spill area by placing them on the oil spill itself. Once the pad is saturated, it can be easily removed by simply picking up the pad.

2. Concentration/Application Rate: CAS 100© is used by applying 1 pound of product to each 10 pounds of spilled hydrocarbon. The contact time varies from just a few seconds to several hours depending upon the quantity of the spill. Hydrocarbon viscosities decrease as temperatures increase causing an increase in the time required for the gelling process of hydrocarbon to CAS 100©.

3. Conditions for Use: CAS 100© can be used on any concentration of water salinity and water temperature. There is no restriction of the types of ages of the hydrocarbon being processed. Depending upon the types of the hydrocarbon, the CAS 100©/oil solid can be in the form of a carpet, rubber ball or crumb like material. CAS 100© has a fast gelling characteristic, which prevents the hydrocarbon from spreading further. Once the hydrocarbon comes in contact with CAS 100©, the result is a non-leaching solid within a few minutes (or hours) depending on the size of the spill. The resulting solid should be collected at the spill site and disposed of according to federal, state and local regulations. Collecting the solid at the spill site will prevent the CAS 100©/oil solid from reaching open water.
