OIL SPILL ON WATER
Where possible contain any floating spilled oil, using oil booms. If the oil layer is too thick, pump or skim off as much as possible. When most of the spilled oil has been removed or the spilled oil cannot be contained, apply undiluted. For small spills, spray using a portable hand spray. Allow the product to react with the oil, then disperse the mixture using water from fire hose or other mechanical means.
For large spills, use spraying equipment connected to the side of a motor boat. Ensuring the spray is directed over the spill. Spraying can also be done from aircraft fitted with spraying equipment.
OIL SPILL ON DECKS AND BEACHES
Remove as much spilled oil as possible with oil absorbent. Spray undiluted over the spill and allow the product to react with the oil. Disperse the mixture with water from a fire hose. For spills on beaches and on rocks the mixture will be dispersed by natural tidal wash action.
Method of Application
TANK CLEANING – CIRCULATION METHOD
Recommended tank-cleaning procedure for removing stains from tank linings using Stanrose® Seacare OSD-I.
1. Mix solutions of Stanrose® Seacare OSD-I either in tank bottom or void space.
2. Dilution rate with water between 4 % and 10 %, depending upon light or heavy contamination (see above). Recent experience has shown that a 8 % - 8.5 % solution secures successful cleaning.

4. Tanks to be cleaned.
5. The solution may be used at ambient temperature, however,
it is suggested that an increase of the cleaning temperature to
maximum 50 °C will enhance the cleaning ability and shorten
the cleaning time.
6. Proceed to recycle the cleaning solution through the tank
washing system for a period of two hours minimum per
machine drop. Usually a cleaning time of 4 hours per tank will
7. At completion of chemical application begin washing down
