|IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION|
|1. Flammability: >174°F
2. Ventilation: Dust explosions are possible while handling organic powders at high concentrations. Therefore, provide proper air ventilation with fresh air or other methods to avoid dust formation. General dust limits (DE-TRGS 900): 3 mg/m3 (respirable dust fraction), 10 mg/m3 (inhalable dust fraction), short-term exposure value (TRGS 900, 2.3) – excess factor 4. For short-term exposure wear dust masks.
3. Skin and eye contact: protective covering; treatment in case of contact: Avoid contact to skin and eyes. Do not breathe dust. Wear protective goggles, gloves, and clothing. Following skin contact, wash with plenty of water and pH-neutral soap. Obtain medical attention if irradiation symptoms persist. Following eye contact, remove contact lenses immediately and rinse with plenty of water (also under the eyelids) for at least 15 minutes. Obtain medical attention. Following ingestion, remove all of product from the respiratory system and wash oral cavity. Drink 200–300 ml of water. Do not induce vomiting without medical advice. Obtain medical attention.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 45°C/113°F
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: -5°C/23°F
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: -5°C to 30°C/23°F to 86°F
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations and chemical changes: The material composition does not change with the temperature (no phase separation). Chemical changes occur at temperatures >45°C/113°F with oxygen. The material changes from white to yellow and the absorption behavior decreases.
|V. SHELF LIFE|
|Shelf life is 3 years from date of production. Keep material stored in original containers in a dark, dry area until use. The product should be used within 6 months after opening the original container.|
|VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE|
1. Application Method:
Use NORSOREX® APX powder or pads by estimating the hydrocarbon quantity and checking with the application chart to individuate the necessary quantity. The suggestion to optimize the usage is to keep ratio values of NORSOREX® APX to hydrocarbon as close as possible to the application chart. If possible, use pretests to test the process. Deploy NORSOREX® APX in the environment where there is hydrocarbon to be removed or recovered. NORSOREX® APX can be applied by hand or through mechanical spreading. According to the desired performance, wait the necessary reaction time. Reaction takes place within minutes and it reaches 80 percent of its efficiency after only a few hours. Maximum efficiency (100 percent) can be reached in less than 24 hours. Once NORSOREX® APX has reacted, it is possible to recover the hydrocarbon in solid form.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
3. Conditions for Use:
Avoid damage to NORSOREX® APX pads if the application environment is characterized by rough water. This will ensure the easiest deployment and recovery procedure. If allowed by current regulations and if properly contained, the free powder form is recommended to optimize the contact interface between NORSOREX® APX and the liquid hydrocarbon.
