FOR USE AS AN ANTIMICROBIAL UNDER EPA REGULATIONS

DIRECTIONS PRIOR TO COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL USE

This product can be applied to organic or inorganic substrates by spraying. Dry substrates at temperatures from ambient to a maximum of 160°C (320°F) to effect complete condensation of silanol groups and to remove water, solvents, and/or traces of methanol from hydrolysis. Optimum application and drying conditions, such as time and temperature, should be determined for each application before use. If necessary, reapply this product every three months (90 days) or when odor, staining, and discoloration due to bacteria, mold, or mildew returns.

Test fabric or surface in an inconspicuous area for color fastness or adverse reaction.

For Pump Spray Application: Spray entire area 4 to 6 inches from the surface making sure the surface is completely covered. Apply and then let stand until dry or let stand 3 minutes and wipe dry with cloth or sponge. If spotting occurs, wipe with moist cloth or sponge. Test for staining and color-fastness of fabrics and carpets by treating and drying a small, concealed area prior to application. When treating coarser substrates, more of this product may be required due to absorption. A fan may be used to assist in drying.

For Commercial Spray Application Fabric: For commercial application equipment (i.e. carpet/upholstery steamers, rotary jet extraction cleaners, pressure sprayers) apply without dilution and then let stand until dry or let stand 3 minutes and wipe dry with cloth or sponge. If spotting occurs, wipe with moist cloth or sponge. Test for staining and color-fastness of fabrics and carpets by treating and drying a small, concealed area prior to application. When treating coarser substrates, more of this product may be required due to absorption. Spray application is preferred on large surfaces that are easily accessible. The spray equipment chosen should provide a consistent fine (1-300 micron) particle size and uniform spray pattern. Pump up garden type sprayers can be used but care must be taken to maintain maximum pressure by pumping frequently and adjusting the spray nozzle for the finest spray pattern possible. During application achieve complete uniform coverage. Avoid excessive wetting and do not allow the spray to run or pool. Excess moisture should be removed with a clean, dry towel.

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL

Do not contaminate water, food, or feed by storage and disposal. Keep from freezing.

Storage

Store in original, tightly closed containers below 30°C (86°F) and above 0°C (32°F) in a secure area inaccessible to children and away from food or feed.

Pesticide Disposal: Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous. Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray mixture or rinsate is a violation of Federal Law. If these wastes cannot be disposed of by use according to label instructions, contact your State Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the Hazardous Waste Representative at the nearest EPA Regional Office for guidance.

Container Disposal: Non-Refillable Container. Do not reuse or refill this container. Triple rinse container (or equivalent) promptly after emptying. Triple rinse as follows: Fill the container ¼ full with water and recap. Shake for 10 seconds. Drain for 10 seconds after the flow begins to drip. Follow Pesticide Disposal instructions for rinsate disposal. Repeat this procedure two more times. Then offer for recycling if available or puncture and dispose of in a sanitary landfill, or by incineration.
