3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
This product is a black, opaque solid with a white polyethylene sheeting on one side with no odor.
Product is not flammable but will burn under fire conditions. May cause mild eye and skin irritation.
Contact with heated product may cause thermal burns. Inhalation of vapors from heated product may
cause irritation of the nose, throat and respiratory system. Potential cancer hazards based on animal
data.
4. FIRST AID MEASURES
EYE: First check victim for contact lenses and remove if present. Flush victim's eyes with large
quantities of water for at least 15 minutes, holding the eyelids apart. Get medical attention if irritation
persists.
SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Wash skin thoroughly with soap and water. If rash or irritation
develop, get medical attention. Launder clothing before re-use. (Discard contaminated shoes)

INGESTION: If conscious, rinse mouth with water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
or convulsing person. Get medical attention.
INHALATION: Remove victim to fresh air. If breathing is difficult have qualified personnel
administer oxygen. If breathing has stopped, administer artificial respiration. Get immediate medical
attention.
5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASH POINT: >320° F
FLAMMABLE LIMITS: LEL: Not applicable UEL: Not applicable
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not determined
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use foam or dry chemical to extinguish fire. Use fog nozzles if water
is used. Water streams may cause violent eruptions and spread the burning of asphalt. Use water to
cool fire exposed containers and structures.
UNUSUAL FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Product will burn if exposed to elevated
temperatures or fire. Hot asphalt may ignite flammable mixtures on contact. Toxic vapors including
hydrogen sulfide may be released upon combustion. Hydrogen sulfide vapors are heavier than air, may
accumulate in low areas and flashback if ignited.
SPECIAL FIRE-FIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS: Firefighters should wear positive pressure selfcontained breathing apparatus and full protective clothing. Do not allow run-off from fire fighting to
enter drains or water courses.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, hydrogen sulfide,
acrolein, aldehydes, ketones and unidentified organic compounds may be formed on combustion.
EXPLOSION DATA (sensitivity to mechanical impact or static discharge): None known.
6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
Pick up and place into an appropriate container for disposal. If product becomes molten, allow product
to cool before picking or scraping up.
7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
HANDLING: Avoid contact with the eyes and skin. Avoid breathing vapors, mists or fumes. If
product is heated, use with adequate ventilation. Wash with soap and water after use.
Do not cut, drill, grind or weld on or near containers, even empty containers. Empty containers retain
product residues can be hazardous. Follow all MSDS precautions when handling empty containers.
STORAGE: Store in a cool, well ventilated area away from excessive heat and sources of ignition.
Do not enter confined storage areas without proper precautions including atmospheric testing.
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
EXPOSURE GUIDELINES: Refer to Section 2.
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: General ventilation should be adequate for normal use. For
operations where the TLV may be exceeded, mechanical ventilation such as local exhaust may be
needed to maintain exposure levels below applicable limits.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: None needed under ambient conditions. For situations where the
product is heated, hydrogen sulfide may be released. In such conditions, a NIOSH/MSHA approved
positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus is recommended. Gas masks or other air purifying

respirators are not recommended for hydrogen sulfide due to its poor odor warning properties.
Equipment selection depends on containment type and concentration, select in accordance with 29
CFR 1910.134 and good industrial hygiene practice. For firefighting, use self-contained breathing
apparatus.
SKIN PROTECTION: If heated, wear leather gloves to prevent thermal burns.
EYE PROTECTION: Safety glasses or goggles should be worn where contact is possible.
OTHER: Wear long sleeved shirt and long pants to avoid skin contact. Wash thoroughly after
handling.

10. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY
STABILITY: Stable under normal storage and handling conditions.
INCOMPATIBILITY: Strong oxidizers. Avoid water if product is molten.
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, sulfur oxides, hydrogen
sulfide, acrolein, aldehydes, ketones and unidentified organic compounds.
HAZARDOUS POLYMERIZATION: Will not occur.
11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
HEALTH HAZARDS:
INGESTION: No adverse effects are expected from normal use. Swallowing may cause
gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
INHALATION: No adverse effects expected at ambient temperatures. Vapors released from heating
product may cause respiratory irritation. At elevated temperatures hydrogen sulfide may be released.
The release of hydrogen sulfide gas in various concentrations may cause irritation of the eyes and
respiratory tract, headache, dizziness, nausea and drowsiness. Exposure to high concentrations of
hydrogen sulfide can cause respiratory arrest and death.
EYE: May cause irritation with redness, tearing and blurred vision. Contact with product at elevated
temperatures may cause thermal burns.
SKIN: May cause irritation, defatting of the skin and dermatitis. Contact with product at elevated
temperatures may cause thermal burns.
SENSITIZATION: This product is not expected to cause sensitization.

CHRONIC/CARCINOGENICITY: No adverse effects expected at ambient temperatures. Prolonged
inhalation of asphalt smoke has been shown to cause bronchitis, pneumonitis and abscess formation in
laboratory animals. Asphalt fume condensates have been shown to cause tumorgenic responses when
repeatedly applied to the skin of laboratory animals. Prolonged inhalation of talc dust may cause lung
damage (pulmonary fibrosis), however, the talc in this product is bound in a polymer matrix and dust
exposure would not be expected. Asphalt (petroleum, bitumen) is listed by IARC as “Possibly
Carcinogenic to Humans”, Group 2B.
MUTAGENICITY: No adverse effects from available data.
SYNERGISTIC PRODUCTS: None specifically known.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS AGGRAVATED BY EXPOSURE: Employees with pre-existing skin
and respiratory disorders may be at increased risk from exposure.
ACUTE TOXICITY VALUES:
Asphalt: Oral Rat LD50 - >5.0 g/kg
Skin Rabbit LD50 - > 2.0 g/kg
Skin Rabbit LD50 – 14100 uL/kg
Calcium Carbonate: No acute toxicity data available
