Health Effects
Enter text or highlight term...
Warnings: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN! DO NOT TAKE INTERNALLY. Do not breathe vapors. Keep containers closed when not in use. Provide fresh air such that chemical odors cannot be detected during use and while drying. Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. Wash thoroughly after handling. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedstuffs.Keep containers tightly closed in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place. Store away from caustics and oxidizers.
Acute Health Effects: From MSDS:Hazards IdentificationEmergency Overview: A black paste product with a strong solvent odor. WARNING! Do not breathe vapors. Provide fresh air such that chemical odors cannot be detected during use and while drying. May cause eye, skin, nose, throat and respiratory tract irritation. HEATING MAY RELEASE HYDROGEN SULFIDE GAS (H2S).Primary Routes Of Entry: Skin Contact, Inhalation, Eye Contact.Eye Contact: May cause eye irritation, characterized by a burning sensation, redness, tearing, and inflammation. Signs and symptoms may include: pain, tears, swelling, redness and blurred vision.Skin Contact: Harmful if absorbed through the skin. May cause skin irritation. Signs and symptoms may include: pain, discoloration and swelling. Prolonged exposure to the skin may dry the skin and cause dermatitis or burns. DO NOT try to peel the solidified material from the skin or use solvents or thinners to dissolve it. The use of vegetable oil or mineral oil is recommended for removal of this material from the skin. Flush exposed area with water while removing contaminated clothing. Get medical attention if irritation persists.Inhalation: This substance contains sulfur compounds that may form hydrogen sulfide. The rotten eggs odor of hydrogen sulfide is unreliable as an indicator of concentration. Signs and symptoms of over exposure to hydrogen sulfide include respiratory tract irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea, gastrointestinal disturbances, coughing, a sensation of dryness and pain in the nose, throat and chest, confusion and unconsciousness. Hydrogen sulfide concentrations of 1000-2000 ppm can be extremely hazardous. This hazard evaluation is based on data from similar materials. Vapor harmful. Vapors may be irritating to eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Inhalation of high vapor concentrations can cause central nervous system depression and narcosis.Ingestion: Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Ingestion may result in obstruction when material hardens.Medical Conditions which May be Aggravated by Exposure: None known.
Chronic Health Effects: From MSDS:No information provided.
Carcinogenicity: The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has determined that crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite that is inhaled from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1- carcinogenic to humans). Refer to IARC Monograph 68, Silica, Some Silicates and Organic Fibres (published in June 1997) in conjunction with the use of these materials. The National Toxicology Program (NTP) classifies respirable crystalline silica as ***known to be a human carcinogen***. Refer to the 9th Report on Carcinogens (2000). The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) classifies crystalline silica, quartz, as a suspected human carcinogen (Group A2). This product contains clay, which contains crystalline silica. Crystalline silica has been listed as a carcinogen by IARC; however, the particles are coated with asphalt and are not available for inhalation. As such, there is little or no chance of inhalation of crystalline silica and resultant diseases. Breathing dust containing respirable crystalline silica may not cause noticeable injury or illness even though permanent lung damage may be occurring. Inhalation of dust may have the following serious chronic health effects: Excessive inhalation of respirable dust can cause pneumoconiosis, a respiratory disease, which can result in delayed, progressive, disabling and sometimes fatal lung injury. Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, non-specific chest illness and reduced pulmonary function. Smoking exacerbates this disease. Individuals with pneumoconiosis are predisposed to develop tuberculosis. There is some evidence that breathing respirable crystalline silica or the disease silicosis is associated with an increased incidence of significant disease endpoints such as scleroderma (an immune system disorder manifested by fibrosis of the lungs, skin and other internal organs) and kidney disease. Studies in which mice were exposed to a variety of whole asphalts did not result in any increased cancer rate; mice exposed to asphalts diluted with hydrocarbon solvents had increased incidence of certain types of cancer. Brief or intermittent skin contact with this asphalt product is not expected to produce any delayed effects. While normal handling of this product is not likely to cause cancer in humans, skin contact and breathing of mists or vapors should be reduced to a minimum.
First Aid: Eye Contact: In case of contact, immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Get medical attention immediately.Skin Contact: Wash off immediately with soap and plenty of water.Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Get medical attention immediately.Ingestion: If swallowed, DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Get medical attention immediatel
