EC number: 266-028-2
CAS number: 65996-93-2
The residue from the distillation of high temperature coal tar. A black solid with an approximate softening point from 30°C to 180°C (86°F to 356°F). Composed primarily of a complex mixture of three or more membered condensed ring aromatic hydrocarbons.
INHALATION: If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not breathing. Get immediate medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: Wash skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes, or use a waterless handcleaner, whilst removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Get immediate medical attention, if needed.
EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical attention.
INGESTION: DO NOT induce vomiting. If vomiting occurs, keep head lower than hips to help prevent aspiration. Do not give anything by mouth to unconscious or convulsive person. Get medical attention, if needed.
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Dust/air mixtures may ignite or explode. Minimum dust concentration required is 350 g/m3. Containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: regular dry powder, regular foam, carbon dioxide, water mist
FIRE FIGHTING: Move container from fire area if it can be done without risk. Cool containers with water spray until well after the fire is out. Do not use water jets. Directly spraying water or foam onto hot burning product may cause frothing. Avoid inhalation of material or combustion by-products. Stay upwind and keep out of low areas. Treat contaminated water prior to discharge.
FIRE FIGHTING PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Full fire fighting apparel.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS:
Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons
Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Keep out of water supplies and drains. Contact authorities in the event of pollution of soil and aquatic environment or discharge into drains. Remove contaminated soil. See Section 8 for personal protection information.
Page 3 of 8 PENCILLED PITCH Revision Date: 07 Feb 2008
STORAGE: Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Label all containers. Keep separated from incompatible substances.
HANDLING: Use only with adequate ventilation. When using, do not eat, drink or smoke. Wear protective skin cream on exposed skin before and during work shift. To reduce sun sensitivity a sun-blocking lotion (SPF 15+) can also be applied prior to application of a protective cream. Wash exposed areas thoroughly with soap and water, or a waterless handcleaner, after skin contact and before eating, drinking, using tobacco products, or toilets.
Care should be taken to minimise airborne dust levels as well as the deposition of pitch dust on skin and clothing. A severe skin reaction may result from skin deposition. Skin reaction may include swelling, sensitivity to sunlight, and erythema similar to a severe sunburn.

VENTILATION: Ensure adequate ventilation. A local or process enclosure ventilation system may be necessary. Ventilation equipment should be explosion-resistant if explosive concentrations of material are present. If ventilation cannot reduce airborne concentrations below acceptable limits, appropriate respiratory protection should be used. Ensure compliance with applicable exposure limits.
EYE PROTECTION: Wear appropriate splash resistant eye protection if contact is possible. Provide eye wash bottles in the immediate work area.
CLOTHING: Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. Wear protective skin cream on exposed skin before and during work shift. Contaminated clothing should be removed and laundered before reuse. Unusual skin conditions should be reported. Regular medical examinations should be performed.
GLOVES: Wear appropriate chemical resistant gloves.
PROTECTIVE MATERIAL TYPES: polyethylene/ethylene vinyl alcohol laminate, protective skin cream
RESPIRATOR: Individuals at risk to inhalation of dust and vapours must use a respirator which conforms to EN141, with Type P2 filter.
REACTIVITY: Stable at standard temperatures and pressure.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Avoid contact with incompatible materials.
INCOMPATIBILITIES: oxidising materials
HAZARDOUS DECOMPOSITION: Thermal decomposition or combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbons
POLYMERISATION: Will not polymerise.
Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations. Carcinogenic waste products should be clearly labelled and stored securely until such time as they are removed by a competent specialist contractor, or are disposed of safely on site by incineration or in another way that does not accentuate the risk to other workers or outside environment.
EWC-code: 050603 (waste from pyrolysis of coal, other tars)
