First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove victim to fresh air at once. Initiate artificial
respiration and supply oxygen if needed. Keep victim warm
and at rest. Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush the eyes with copious amounts of clean, lukewarm or
cold water (remove contact lenses if easily possible). Hold
the victims eyelids open and pour water slowly over the
eyeball(s) at the inner corner, letting water run out of
the outer corner to rinse the substance out of the eye.
Seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: In case of contact, immediately flush skin copiously with
water for at least 15 minutes to remove bitumen while
removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Remove any
remaining bitumen with organic solvent. Wash clothing before
reuse. Clean shoes thoroughly before reuse. Use vaseline on
scald. Obtain medical attention if necessary.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical
personnel. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious
person. Loosen tight clothing. Keep victim warm and quiet.
Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Use foam, sand, water spray, carbon dioxide or dry powder
extinguishers.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg oxides of carbon).

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity. Eliminate all
sources of ignition.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Prevent entry into sewers, basements or confined areas; dike
if necessary. Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable
inert material (eg sand or soil). Carefully transfer the
spillage to waste containers, or use a sealed industrial
vacuum machine. Containers filled with waste material must
be labelled in the same way as the original containers.



Dispose of waste material by incineration or landfill in
accordance with local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: The substance should be stored, handled and used in
conditions of good industrial hygiene and in conformity with
any local regulations in order to avoid exposure.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipment should conform to the appropriate
international or national standards as follows;

Chemical protective gloves to Standard EN374

Chemical resistant clothing to Standard EN368

Eye protection to Standard EN166

Chemical protective boots.


When necessary appropriate respiratory protection should be
used. e.g. dust mask or self-contained breathing apparatus.



The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a
minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, away from
sources of ignition.


Keep containers hermetically closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: Hermetic metallic tank cisterns (10 - 30 tonnes).

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be kept to a minimum.
Recovery from minor spillages or accidental discharge is not
economically or technically feasible, and such waste
material will be disposed of in accordance with local
regulations. In principle, it may be possible to recover
larger spillages of uncontaminated material for subsequent
use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg sand or soil) may be disposed of by
landfill at an authorised tip in accordance with local
regulations.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg oxides of
carbon) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not applicable since the substance will not be made
available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable since the substance will not be made
available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not applicable since the substance will not be made
available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not applicable since the substance will not be made
available to the public.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not applicable.
