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...
Warnings: Flammable. Contains petroleum distillates. Keep from heat, sparks, or flame. If swallowed, do not induce vomiting-call a physician immediately. KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT OR OPEN FLAME. USE IN WELL VENTILATED AREAS. Avoid contact with eyes and skin. In case of contact, flush eyes with fresh water for at least fifteen minutes; for skin, wash with white mineral oil, wipe off excess and then wash with soap and water. Contents under pressure. Do not puncture or incinerate container. Do not store at temperatures exceeding 120 deg F. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS PRIMARY ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation, skin absorptionExcessive inhalation may produce dizziness, nausea, headache and incoordination. May cause reversible eye and skin irritation. Prolonged skin exposure may cause dermatitis or oil acne. Breathing mists may cause dizziness or pulmonary irritation. PRE-EXISTING MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Exposure may aggravate pre-existing respiratory or skin problems.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS Prolonged skin exposure may cause dermatitis or oil acne. Some asphalt solutions have produced skin cancer in laboratory animals. The activity of test materials varies widely, but the activity in general, is weak. SPECIAL REMARKS: Some asphalts may container hydrogen sulfide (CAS #7783-05-4). Hydrogen sulfide (HS) may accumulate in storage tanks and bulk transport compartments containing asphalts. Prolonged breathing of low levels of HS will produce eye/respiratory tract irritation; extremely high levels (1000ppm) can cause unconsciousness/death.
Carcinogenicity: Based on the skin painting data, IARC has concluded that there is sufficient evidence for carcinogenicity of asphalts, diluted, dissolved or liquefied in solvents, in laboratory animals. Workers, therefore, who practice poor personal hygiene and who are repeatedly exposed by direct skin contact to petroleum asphalts over many years, may potentially be at risk of developing skin cancer. Intermittent or occasional skin contact with petroleum asphalts is not expected to have serious health effects as long as good personal hygiene measures, such as those outlined in this Material Safety Data Sheet, are followed. In addition, asphalt vapors may container polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, some of which are known to be carcinogenic. Therefore, prolonged breathing of vapors should be avoided. Asphalt solutions are considered to be animal carcinogens by IARC. Calcium Carbonate and Hydrous Aluminum Silicate may contain less than 0.1% of Silica Crystalline Quartz (CAS #14808-60-7). IARC Monographs on the evaluations of the Carcinogenic Risk of Chemicals to Humans (Volume 42, 1987) concludes that there is limited evidence of the carcinogenicity of crystalline silica to humans. IARC classification 2A.
First Aid: INHALATION: Move victim to fresh air and call emergency medical care. If not breathing, give artificial respiration; if breathing is difficult, give oxygen. EYES: In case of contact with material, immediately flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes. Seek immediate medical attention. SKIN: Wash skin with soap and water. Remove and isolate contaminated clothing and shoes at the site.INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Consult a physician. If vomiting occurs spontaneously, keep head below hips to prevent aspiration of liquid into the lungs.
