– HEATING MAY RELEASE HIGHLY TOXIC AND FLAMMABLE HYDROGEN SULFIDE GAS (H2S)

– DO NOT ATTEMPT RESCUE WITHOUT SUPPLIED-AIR RESPIRATORY PROTECTION

*******************************************************************************

IMMEDIATE HEALTH EFFECTS

Eye

Not expect to cause prolong or significant eye irritation.  If this material is heat, thermal burns may result from eye contact.

Skin

Contact with the skin is not expected to cause prolonged or significant irritation. However, Contact with the skin is not expected to cause an allergic skin response. Meanwhile Not expect to be harmful to internal organs if absorb through the skin. However If this material is heat, thermal burns may result from skin contact.

Ingestion

Not expected to be harmful if swallowed.

Inhalation

The vapor or fumes from this material may cause respiratory irritation. Meanwhile Symptoms of respiratory irritation may include coughing and difficulty breathing.  Hydrogen sulfide has a strong rotten-egg odor.  However, with continued exposure and at high levels, H2S may deaden a person’s sense of smell. Also If the rotten egg odor is no longer noticeable, it may not necessarily mean that exposure has stopped. Also At low levels, hydrogen sulfide causes irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat.  Moderate levels can cause headache, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting, as well as coughing and difficulty breathing.  Higher levels can cause shock, convulsions, coma, and death. Also after a serious exposure, symptoms usually begin immediately.

 

The U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) considers air concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas greater than 100 ppm to be Immediately Dangerous to Life and Health (IDLH).

 

DELAYED OR OTHER HEALTH EFFECTS:

Cancer: May cause cancer in laboratory animals, but the available information is inadequate to determine if this material can cause cancer in humans.

SECTION 4  FIRST AID MEASURES

Eye

No specific first aid measures are required. Also as a precaution,  remove contact lenses, if worn, and flush eyes with water. And if heat material should splash into eyes, flush eyes immediately with fresh water for 15 minutes while holding the eyelids open.  Remove contact lenses, if worn.  Get immediate medical attention.

Skin

No specific first aid measures are required. Also as a precaution, remove clothing and shoes if contaminated. And to remove the material from skin, apply a waterless hand cleaner, mineral oil, or petroleum jelly. Also then wash with soap and water.  Discard contaminated clothing and shoes or thoroughly clean before reuse.  If the hot material gets on skin, quickly cool in water. Also  see a doctor for extensive burns.  Do not try to peel the solidified material from the skin, or use solvents or thinners to dissolve it. And the use of vegetable oil or mineral oil is recommended for removal of this material from the skin.

Ingestion

No specific first aid measures are required. Also Do not induce vomiting. And As a precaution, get medical advice.

Inhalation

Move the exposed person to fresh air. Also If not breathing, give artificial respiration.  If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. And Get medical attention if breathing difficulties continue.However  If exposure to hydrogen sulfide (H2S) gas is possible during an emergency, wear an approved, positive pressure air-supplying respirator. Meanwhile Move the exposed person to fresh air. Also If not breathing, give artificial respiration. While If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.  Get immediate medical attention.

Note to Physicians

However Administration of 100% oxygen and supportive care is the preferred treatment for poisoning by hydrogen sulfide gas.  For additional information on H2S, see JGPco MSDS No. 301.

 SECTION 5  FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

Autoignition:  482 °C  (900 °F)

Flammability (Explosive) Limits (% by volume in air):   Lower:  0.7     Upper:  6

 

EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use water fog, foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide (CO2) to extinguish flames.

 

PROTECTION OF FIRE FIGHTERS:

Fire Fighting Instructions

However This material will burn although it is not easily ignited.  For fires involving this material, do not enter any enclosed or confined fire space without proper protective equipment, including self-contained breathing apparatus.

Combustion Products

However Highly dependent on combustion conditions.  Also a complex mixture of airborne solids, liquids, and gases including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and unidentified organic compounds will be evolved when this material undergoes combustion.    Combustion may form oxides of: Sulfur  .

SECTION 6  ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES

Protective Measures:  Eliminate all sources of ignition in vicinity of spilled material.

Spill Management

However Stop the source of the release if you can do it without risk.   Contain release to prevent further contamination of soil, surface water or groundwater. Meanwhile Clean up spill as soon as possible, observing precautions in Exposure Controls/Personal Protection. Also Use appropriate techniques such as applying non-combustible absorbent materials or pumping. Also Where feasible and appropriate, remove contaminated soil.  Place contaminated materials in disposable containers and dispose of in a manner consistent with applicable regulations. And If heated material is spilled, allow it to cool before proceeding with disposal methods.

Reporting:  Report spills to local authorities as appropriate or required.

 SECTION 7  HANDLING AND STORAGE

Precautionary Measures

However This material is typically stored, transported and used at temperatures between 275F (135C) and 325F (163C).  DO NOT ADD OR ALLOW WATER TO MIX WITH HOT BITUMEN.  Steam generated eruptions may occur.  STORE AND TRANSPORT BITUMEN ONLY IN PROPERLY VENTED CONTAINERS.  Combustion of Bitumen and Bitumen vapors may occur.  DO NOT MISHANDLE BITUMEN EQUIPMENT.  Observe manufacturer’s guidelines on proper equipment use.

However Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.  Do not breathe vapor or fumes from heated material.  Smoking, eating and drinking, etc. should be prohibited when skin contact with the product or fume condensate is possible.  Workers should clean hands and face before smoking, eating and drinking, etc. Do not use solvents to clean hands and face.  Use vegetable oils or mineral oil, followed by a thorough washing with soap and water.  Avoid contact of heated material with eyes, skin, and clothing.  Do not breathe vapor or fumes.  Wash thoroughly after handling.

Unusual Handling Hazards

However An ignition source should be considered present in large tanks where Bitumen is stored at temperatures above 350 F (176.7C).  Deposits can form in the vapor space of large Bitumen tanks which may ignite as low as 350 F.  Pyrophoric iron sulfide, commonly present in such tanks, may cause ignition below 350 F.

However Toxic quantities of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) may be present in storage tanks and bulk transport vessels which contain or have contained this material.  Persons opening or entering these compartments should first determine if H2S is present.  See Exposure Controls/Personal Protection -Section 8.  Do not attempt rescue of a person over exposed to H2S without wearing approved supplied-air or self-contained breathing equipment.  If there is a potential for exceeding one-half the occupational exposure standard, monitoring of hydrogen sulfide levels is required.  Since the sense of smell cannot be relied upon to detect the presence of H2S, the concentration should be measured by the use of fixed or portable devices.

General Handling Information

Avoid contaminating soil or releasing this material into sewage and drainage systems and bodies of water.

Static Hazard

However Electrostatic charge may accumulate and create a hazardous condition when handling this material. To minimize this hazard, bonding and grounding may be necessary but may not, by themselves, be sufficient. Review all operations which have the potential of generating and accumulating an electrostatic charge and/or a flammable atmosphere (including tank and container filling, splash filling, tank cleaning, sampling, gauging, switch loading, filtering, mixing, agitation, and vacuum truck operations) and use appropriate mitigating procedures.

Container Warnings

However Container is not designed to contain pressure. Also do not use pressure to empty container or it may rupture with explosive force. However empty containers retain product residue (solid, liquid, and/or vapor) and can be dangerous.  Also do not pressurize, cut, weld, braze, solder, drill, grind, or expose such containers to heat, flame, sparks, static electricity, or other sources of ignition.  Also they may explode and cause injury or death. And  empty containers should be completely drained, properly closed, and promptly returned to a drum reconditioner or disposed of properly.

SECTION 8  EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION

GENERAL CONSIDERATIONS

However Consider the potential hazards of this material (see Section 3), applicable exposure limits, job activities, and other substances in the work place when designing engineering controls and selecting personal protective equipment. Also If engineering controls or work practices are not adequate to prevent exposure to harmful levels of this material, the personal protective equipment listed below is recommended. Also the user should read and understand all instructions and limitations supplied with the equipment since protection is usually provided for a limited time or under certain circumstances.

 

ENGINEERING CONTROLS

Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to control airborne levels below the recommended exposure limits.

 

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT

Eye/Face Protection

However No special eye protection is normally required. However where splashing is possible, wear safety glasses with side shields as a good safety practice. also If this material is heated, wear chemical goggles or safety glasses or a face shield.

Skin Protection

However No special protective clothing is normally required. Also where splashing is possible, select protective clothing depending on operations conducted, physical requirements and other substances in the workplace. Also Suggest materials for protective gloves include:  Viton, Chlorinate Polyethylene (or Chlorosulfonate Polyethylene).   If this material is heat, wear insulate clothing to prevent skin contact if engineering controls or work practices are not adequate to prevent skin contact.

Respiratory Protection

However Determine if airborne concentrations are below the recommended occupational exposure limits for jurisdiction of use. However If airborne concentrations are above the acceptable limits, wear an approved respirator that provides adequate protection from this material, such as:   Air-Purifying Respirator for Organic Vapors and Dusts and Mists. If material is heat and emits hydrogen sulfide, determine if airborne concentrations are below the occupational exposure limit for hydrogen sulfide.  Also If not, wear an approved positive pressure air-supplying respirator.  For more information on hydrogen sulfide, see ATDM MSDS No. 301.

Use a positive pressure air-supplying respirator in circumstances where air-purifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.

ADDITIONAL TOXICOLOGY INFORMATION

However There is concern about the carcinogenicity of chemical compounds found in Bitumens. Also The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) reviewed the carcinogenic potential of Bitumens in 1985 and again in 1987. However At that time, they concluded there was inadequate evidence to decide that Bitumens were carcinogenic to humans.  Overall, findings from health monitoring studies of Bitumen workers are not conclusive.  However Bitumen fume condensates and certain chemical components of Bitumen fume show to cause cancer in mice when repeatedly apply to the skin and allow to remain on the skin for a prolong period of time.  In addition, Bitumen fume condensates show to be weakly positive in Ames mutagenicity tests. Also Skin contact and breathing of fumes, mists and vapors should reduce to a minimum.
