IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
Non-flammable.
2. Ventilation:
Ventilation of the work place is not necessary.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
In case of contact with skin or eyes, wash with plenty of water.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 132ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 32ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 55ºF - 85ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations: <32ºF and >140ºF
V. SHELF LIFE
The recommended shelf life of S-200C is 1½ years if kept in the unopened original container.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
S-200C is a light amber liquid, and as such can be sprayed with traditional liquid spraying equipment, such as pressurized sprayers or backpack sprayers.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
The recommended application rate is approximately 10% by volume of the S-200C as compared to the hydrocarbon being remediated. In other words, use 1 pound of S-200C for every 10 pounds of hydrocarbon you are remediating.
For applications on soil contaminated below 1 foot, the soil is turned and the material is applied. This allows air to circulate and thereby maintains an aerobic condition.
On a surface application, the amount to use is approximately 0.1 to 1 pound of S-200C for every square yard of surface area. The amount sprayed is dependent on the amount of hydrocarbon on the surface you are spraying.
To remediate a sheen on water, the same application ratio for a surface application is used.
3. Conditions for Use:
S-200C is a bioremediation accelerator used for the remediation of hydrocarbon spills or leaks. It is a non-intrusive, cost effective remedy for the cleanup of these hydrocarbons. These hydrocarbons include but are not limited to gasoline, No. 2 to No. 6 diesel fuel, jet fuels, kerosene, lubricating oils, hydraulic oils, and crude oils.

VIII. MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS
1. Listing of all microorganisms by species and percentages in the composition:
S-200C is a nutrient bioremediation accelerator and does not contain bacterial cultures or amendments. However, with the addition of S-200C, the microbiological data shows a continued viability of microbial incubations over time.
2. Optimum pH, temperature, and salinity ranges for use of the additive:
pH: 7.0
Temperature: 86ºF
Salinity: Fresh to salt water
3. Minimum and maximum pH, temperature, and salinity levels below or above which the effectiveness of the additive is reduced to half its optimum capacity:
pH: 4.5 - 10.0
Temperature: 50ºF - 120ºF
Salinity: 0% - 10%
4. Special nutrient requirements:
NA
5. Test results regarding the determination of the presence of the following:
Salmonella: Negative
Fecal coliform: Negative
Shigella: Negative
Staphylococcus Coagulase positive: Negative
Beta hemolytic Streptococci: Negative
