Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS See Carcinogenicity.
Carcinogenicity: This product contains petroleum asphalt. Petroleum asphalt is not listed as a The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined there is inadequate evidence that asphalt alone is carcinogenic to humans, and that there is inadequate evidence for the carcinogenicity of undiluted air-refined asphalts in experimental animals. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has concluded that at higher temperatures roofing occupational carcinogen. If this product is heated or comes in contact with heated material, avoid breathing fumes. This material contains a hydrocarbon solvent. When dissolved in hydrocarbon solvents, asphalt has produced skin tumors in animals following prolonged and repeated contact. Consequently, IARC has determined that there is sufficient evidence that extracts or cutbacks (asphalts dissolved in hydrocarbonsolvents) are carcinogenic to experimental animals. This product may contain small amounts of polyaromatic hydrocarbons which are recognized carcinogens in humans and experimental animals.This material contains a hydrocarbon solvent. Reports have associated prolonged or repeated occupational overexposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage (sometimes referred to as
First Aid: EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the eye lids to ensure thorough rinsing. Get medical attention if irritation persists. Get immediate medical attention if there is direct eye contact with hot material. SKIN CONTACT: Clean exposed skin with warm soapy water. Use a waterless hand cleaner to help remove the asphalt. Do not use solvents or thinners to remove material from skin. Get medical attention if irritation persists or develops. INGESTION: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting because of danger of aspirating material into lungs, resulting in damage and chemical pneumonia. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to prevent aspiration. Get immediate medical attention. INHALATION: If inhalation overexposure to vapors, mists, or fumes occurs, remove person to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration or give oxygen by trained personnel. Get immediate medical attention.NOTES TO PHYSICIAN: Medical personnel can soften and remove asphalt with petroleum jelly or white mineral oil. In general, emesis induction is unnecessary in high viscosity products. Also contains mineral spirits that, when aspirated into the lung, may result in chemical pneumonia. If large volumes have been swallowed, gastric lavage should be considered. Patients may be predisposed to pneumonia during convalescence, and should be kept under observation. Inhalation exposure of hydrogen sulfide may also result in pulmonary congestion. Contact a Poison Center for additional treatment information.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: Store away from heat and all ignition sources and open flames in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.Avoid all ignition sources. Storage areas should be ventilated to reduce fire and explosion hazards, and possible overexposure of personnel to fumes and vapors . Keep containers closed when not in use. Do not store near food and beverages or smokingmaterials.NOTE: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S), an extremely toxic gas, may be emitted from heated asphalt and may accumulate in storage tanks and other confined spaces. Empty containers retain residue (liquid and/or vapor) and can be dangerous. DO NOT PRESSURIZE, CUT, WELD, BRAZE, SOLDER, DRILL, GRIND OR EXPOSE SUCH CONTAINERS TO HEAT, FLAME, SPARKS, OR OTHER SOURCES OF IGNITION. THEY MAY EXPLODE AND CAUSE INJURY OR DEATH. Do not attempt to clean since residue is difficult to remove.
Disposal: Dispose in accordance with applicable Federal, State and Local regulations.
