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

1. Flammability: Non-flammable (DOT: Non-Hazardous)
2. Ventilation: Normal ventilation is adequate. No respiratory protection is required. If respiratory irritation or distress occurs, remove exposed person to fresh air. Seek medical attention if respiratory irritation or distress continues.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact: Protective eyewear is advisable for operator’s comfort. If eye irritation occurs, flush eyes with water. After initial flushing, removal any contact lenses and continue flushing for 1 minute. Please seek medical attention, if eye irritation symptoms persist or if there are additional concerns. Wash hands after handling. If ingested, drink 2-4 glasses of water and allow the product to pass through the digestive system naturally. Ingesting large amounts may cause gastrointestinal distress due to emulsification of grease and oil in the digestive tract. Please seek medical attention, if symptoms persist of if there additional concerns.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 120°F continuous, 130°F up to 5 days
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 30°F
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 40°F to 110°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: Stable

V. SHELF LIFE

5 years in sealed poly drums or IBC totes (as delivered).

VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE

1. Application Method: FORMULA 206-1x BIO-WASH™ may be applied to hard surfaces including beaches, shorelines, and rocks; specifically to aid in the removal of oil and oil saturated soiling. Product may be applied by spray, high pressure wash, mop, scrub brush, cloth or sponge. Once applied to target surface, allow for a 5 to 30 minute dwell time, the product may be agitated using suitable physical methods (i.e., scrubbing to increase effectiveness). For large areas such as shorelines, product can be applied by vehicle or boat; spraying from fire eduction systems or boom system, hand-held or backpack sprayers, garden type sprayers, or from hoses attached to small pumps through power washers, fire pump or other portable pump with suction that is equipped with a chemical inductor or feed pump. After application, the removal of oil or oil saturated soiling can be done by rinsing with water where practicable followed by removal with physical methods, such as sorbent pads, mop or vacuum application to prevent contamination to open water. Ensure boom containment continues to be in place during oil/product removal procedures.

2. Concentration/Application Rate: FORMULA 206-1x BIO-WASH™ is typically diluted with using tap-water at ambient temperature; and can be diluted with sea water or any other suitable field expedient water source. The product is not affected by salinity or hard water dilution. Apply using a typical dilution ratio of 1:10 in the first instance. Product dilution varies with the severity of the contamination, contaminant viscosity, area of application and porosity, and nature of the surface to be decontaminated. A dilution ratio ranging from 1:5 to 1:200 is recommended for this product, there is no specific application rate; however, for large area application, 15 to 50 U.S. gallons per acre can be considered optimal. During application, the rate and concentration of the product can be adjusted to suit the cleaning effect desired.

3. Conditions for Use: FORMULA 206-1x BIO-WASH™ is most effective on hydrocarbon and bio-organic soiling on hard surfaces including beaches, shorelines, and rocks. A sorbent boom or other containment equipment should be positioned prior and remain in place during product use to collect runoff from application and removal operations. Collect and contain runoff from oil/product mixture and dispose of such material in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
