Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS See Carcinogenicity.
Carcinogenicity: This product contains petroleum asphalt. Petroleum asphalt is not listed as a carcinogen by OSHA or NTP. 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 asphalt fumes are a potential occupational carcinogen. If this product is heated or comes in contact with heated material, avoid breathing fumes.This product may contain small amounts of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH
First Aid: EYE CONTACT: Flush immediately with clear water for 20 minutes. Seek medical attention promptly. SKIN CONTACT: If hot asphalt contacts exposed skin, cool immediately with cold water and seek medical assistance promptly. Exercise extreme care in removing contaminated clothing to avoid damage to skin surfaces. Petroleum jelly, baby oil, or mineral oil will facilitate removal of asphalt from skin. Launder contaminated clothing before reuse. Discard contaminated leather articles. If skin has not burned, wash with soap and water.INGESTION: If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Avoid aspiration of vomit into the lungs which can cause inflammation or pneumonitis. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
