The following information (Health Effects, Handling/Disposal, and Ingredients) is taken from the product label and/or the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) prepared by the manufacturer.

Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS
Variable Among Individuals: Health studies have shown that individual sensitivities vary from person to person. As a precaution, exposure to vapors, liquids, mists, or fuses should be minimized. Some individuals are more susceptible then others to skin disorders. Fair-haired, light complexioned persons are more apt to be affected than dark-haired, dark skinned people.

Effects of Overexposure: (Signs and symptoms of exposure)
Harmful if inhaled or swallowed. Causes eye and skin irritation.

Nature of Hazard and Toxicity Information: Liquid can cause skin irritation and dermatitis, including acne. Coal tar is a photo toxic substance which, in the presence of ultraviolet light (sunlight), can cause a skin reaction similar to an exaggerated sunburn, frequently causing blisters. Ingestion can cause severe gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, and vomiting if swallowed; fatal in dose of about 0.1 g/kg of body weight. Long term exposure to coal tar over many years in the absence of recommended hygiene practices can cause changes in skin pigmentation, benign skin growths, or skin cancer. Additionally, inhalation of vapors over a period of several years may present a lung cancer hazard. Crystalline quartz contained in this product is totally encapsulated and does not present a respirable dust hazard. Crystalline quartz in respirable form may cause delayed (chronic) lung injury (silicosis). Silicosis is a form of disabling pulmonary fibrosis which can be progressive and may lead to death.

Pre-existing Medical Conditions Which May be Aggravated by Exposure: Persons with history of diseases in the liver, skin, eye, respiratory system, blood forming organs or with bleeding abnormalities or exposure to material harmful to these systems are at greater risk than normal risk of developing adverse health effects when working with this product.

Eye Contact: Coal Tar - Vapors and mist may cause irritation to the eyes. Eye contact with product will result in irritation, which in the absence of recommended first aid, can result in minor burns to eyes.

Skin: Coal Tar - Exposure causes skin irritation characterized by skin itching, burning, swelling, and redness. Photosensitization of the skin may occur. This irritation has a burning sensation somewhat like sunburn and is accentuated by sunlight. Repeated or prolonged contact may contribute to conditions such as dermatitis, tar warts, and rough skin. I

Inhalation: Coal Tar - Acute effects caused from overexposure may include coughing, sneezing, and swollen or irritated nasal mucosa and sinuses. Repeated and/or prolonged contact to high concentrations may result in toxic effects, such as respiratory difficulties, convulsions, and possible cardiovascular collapse may occur.

Ingestion: Coal Tar - May cause gastrointestinal tract irritation followed by nausea and vomiting, abdominal discomfort, rapid pulse, etc. In extreme cases, cardiovascular collapse may occur.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS
Chronic overexposure (as defined by OSHA standards) may cause cancer.
Carcinogenicity: From MSDS
Carcinogenicity: Coal tar, benzo(a)pyrene, and mineral oils containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons have been determined by NTP and IARC to be human carcinogens. This product contains crystalline silica which is not expected to ever be in a respirable form while handling or using this product. However the user is advised of the following carcinogenicity listings for respirable crystalline silica: Carcinogenicity Listings for silica:
NTP: Known carcinogen
OSHA: Not listed as a carcinogen
IARC Monographs: Group 1 Carcinogen
California Proposition 65: Known carcinogen
NTP: The National Toxicology Program, in its Ninth Report on Carcinogens (released May 15, 2000) concluded that Respirable crystalline silica (RCS), primarily quartz dusts occurring in industrial and occupational settings, is known to be a human carcinogen, based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in humans indicating a causal relationship between exposure to RCS and increased lung cancer rates in workers exposed to crystalline silica dust (reviewed in IAC, 1997; Brown et al., 1997; Hind et al., 1997)

QUIKRETE® MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET page # 3
Product: TRAFFIC TOP DRIVEWAY SEALER & FILLER MSDS NN
IARC: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) concluded that there was sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of crystalline silica in the forms of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources, and that there is sufficient evidence in experimental animals for the carcinogenicity of quartz or cristobalite. The overall IARC evaluation was that crystalline silica inhaled in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1). The IARC evaluation noted that carcinogenicity was not detected in all industrial circumstances or studies. Carcinogenicity may be dependent on inherent characteristics of the crystalline silica or on external factors affecting its biological activity or distribution of its polymorphs. For further information on the IARC evaluation, see IARC Monographs on the Evaluation of carcinogenic Risks to Humans, Volume 68, Silica, Some Silicates... (1997)
First Aid: From MSDS
Eye Contact: If eye contact occurs, flush with water or mineral oil for at least 15 minutes and SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION. Inorganic particulates; quartz, etc., may cause mechanical irritation.
Skin: If contact occurs, wash affected area with waterless hand cleaner. Remove contaminated clothing/shoes and do not reuse until thoroughly laundered. If irritation persists, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration or oxygen as needed. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.
Ingestion: If ingested, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Give water or clear liquids. Consult local Poison Control Center, IMMEDIATELY!

Handling/Disposal
Handling: From MSDS
Ventilation should be adequate. Keep containers closed when not in use. DO NOT STORE NEAR HEAT, SPARKS, FLAME OR STRONG OXIDANTS. Minimize breathing vapor or mist.
