Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: CAUTION: KEEP AWAY FROM HEAT OR OPEN FLAME. USE IN WELL VENTILATED AREAS. May be harmful if swallowed. 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. Get medical attention if irritation persists.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDSHEALTH HAZARD INFORMATIONPRIMARY ROUTES OF ENTRY: Inhalation, skin absorptionACUTE HEALTH EFFECTSExcessive 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 preexisting respiratory or skin problems.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: Some asphalt solutions have produced skin cancer in laboratory animals. The activity of test materials varies widely, but the activity in general, is weak. Based on the kin 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. SPECIAL REMARKS: Some asphalts may container hydrogen sulfide (CAS #7783-05-4) ACGIH TLV= 10ppm. 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: 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.

Handling/Disposal
Handling: HANDLING AND STORAGE PRECAUTIONS: Store in cool, well-ventilated area. Keep away from flames, sparks or hot surfaces. Never use a torch to cut or weld on or near container. Empty containers can contain explosive vapors.OTHER PRECAUTIONS: Never wear contaminated clothing. Launder or dry clean before wearing. Discard oil soaked shoes. Wash thoroughly with soap and water (waterless hand cleaner may be helpful in removing residues) after use and before smoking or eating. Avoid excessive skin contact.
Disposal: Dispose of in accordance with state, local and federal regulations. Materials may become a hazardous waste through use. If permitted, incineration may be practiced. Consider recycling solvent.
