SECTION III. HEALTH HAZARD INFORMATION

EFFECTS OF OVEREXPOSURE

INHALATION: Spray mist can irritate the respiratory tract. Prolonged exposure to airborne mist concentrations significantly beyond workplace exposure limits could cause respiratory difficulty. Note: There is no foreseeable risk of workers' inhaling solid constituents of this mixture.

EYE EXPOSURE: Spray mist or liquid can irritate the eyes. Repeated or prolonged exposure may cause eye damage.

SKIN EXPOSURE: Liquid can cause skin irritation and dermatitis, including acne. Coal Tar is a phototoxic substance which, in the presence of ultraviolet light (sunlight), can cause a skin reaction similar to an exaggerated sunburn, frequently causing blisters.

INGESTION: Liquid can cause severe gastrointestinal irritation, nausea and vomiting if swallowed; fatal in large amounts.

OTHER DELAYED EFFECTS: Long term exposure to coal tar can cause changes in skin pigmentation, growths on the skin or skin cancer. It may cause cancer of the lung, kidney, or bladder.

CARCINOGENICITY DETERMINATION: Coal Tar and benzo-a-pyrene have been determined by NTP and IARC to be human carcinogens.

FIRST AID: INHALATION: Remove subject to fresh air immediately. Give artificial respiration if breathing has stopped. Administer oxygen if breathing is difficult. Consult a physician if symptoms persist. EYE CONTACT: Flush eyes with large amounts of water for at least fifteen minutes. Consult a physician if irritation persists. SKIN CONTACT: Remove any contaminated clothing and clean effected skin areas with corn oil; then wash with soap and water. Do not use solvents to clean the skin. Hydrocortisone cream may be used for relief of skin irritation. Consult a physician if irritation persists. INGESTION: Do not give anything by mouth. Do not induce vomiting; may cause pulmonary complications. Consult a physician or poison control center at once.

SECTION IV. FIRE AND EXPLOSION DATA

FLASH POINT: > 200 °C/392 °F
LOWER EXPLOSION LIMIT: None
UPPER EXPLOSION LIMIT: None
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not Established

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use dry chemical, foam, CO2, or water fog. In closed tanks, water or foam may cause frothing or eruption.
Wear respirator (pressure demand, self-contained breathing apparatus, MSHA/NIOSH approved) and full protective gear for working fires. Cool exposed containers with water spray.
 
SECTION V. REACTIVITY DATA

This material will not react with common substances (air, water, etc.). It will not polymerize. It may react violently with strong oxidizers such as liquid chlorine, sodium or potassium hypchlorite, nitric acid and peroxides. Decomposition is not expected for normal handling. Combustion products can include oxides of nitrogen, carbon, and possibly sulfur.

BOILING RANGE: 100 °C/212 °C -- 526 °C/980 °F
VAPOR PRESSURE: 17 mm Hg at 20 °C (water)
APPEARANCE AND ODOR: Black liquid with mild odor
 
SECTION VII. SPILL, LEAK, AND DISPOSAL PROCEDURE

PERSONAL PROTECTION: Follow all precautions given in "Health Hazard Information" , and, in addition, wear permeations-resistent, elastomeric boots or overshoes.

CLEAN-UP: Indoors: Ventilate the spill area. Contain spillage by diking, if necessary, with sand, earth or other inert material to prevent entry into sewers or open bodies of water. If hot, first cool, then transfer spillage to containers suitable for recovery and disposal.

WASTE DISPOSAL: Incinerate at a permitted facility in accordance with local and state regulations.
 
SECTION VIII. SPECIAL PROTECTION INFORMATION

VENTILATION OF CONTAINMENT: Indoors: Ventilate with general or local exhaust ventilation during spraying operations to minimize exposure to spray mist. Outdoors: Stay upwind if material is sprayed.

RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use MSHA/NIOSH approved respirator suitable for spray mist concentrations encountered , if any.

EYE PROTECTION: Wear chemical splash goggles (ANSI Z87.1) when pouring or transferring this material. Do not wear contact lenses in the presence of this material unless chemical splash goggles are worn.

SKIN PROTECTION: Avoid skin contact by wearing permeation-resistant, elastomeric gloves and clothes with long sleeves and pants. Replace elastomeric protective equipment whenever it becomes swollen, gummy torn, or shows evidence of barrier loss. Apply a solvent-resistant skin barrier cream to areas of skin that may come into contact with material. If working outdoors, first apply sunscreen, lotion with a high sun block protection factor to skin exposed to sunlight, then apply barrier cream.

OTHER PROTECTIVE MEASURES: Eyewash station and emergency showers or other source of fresh running water should be readily available.

PERSONAL HYGIENE: Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water after handling and especially before eating or smoking. Shower at the end of the work shift. Wash contaminated clothing before use.
 
SECTION IX. SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AND COMMENTS

DISPOSITION OF EMPTY CONTAINERS: Empty containers may contain hazardous residues (vapor, liquid or solid). All MSDS and label precautions should be observed until containers are reconditioned. DO NOT flame-cut or weld on them. Crush or puncture containers before discarding them to prevent their reuse by an untrained person.
