2. COMPOSITION, INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
CAS number: 8052-42-4
Bitumen is a substance produced by crude oil. A complex combination of high molecular weight organic compounds with carbon numbers greater than C16, with high carbon-to hydrogen ratios. It also contains small amounts of various metals such as nickel, iron, and vanadium.

3. HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
A black or dark brown highly viscous liquid. Heated bitumen can cause severe skin burns and eye injury. Eye, skin, gastrointestinal, and respiratory tract irritation can occur. Poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas may accumulate in confined spaces. ROUTE OF ENTRY: Skin contact, Eye contact, Inhalation, Ingestion EFFECTS OF ACUTE EXPOSURE: EYES: Hot bitumen and bitumen fumes may cause severe irritation and burns. Cold bitumen may cause slight irritation. Bitumen dust may cause irritation characterized by burning, redness, swelling and watering. 

SKIN: Hot bitumen and bitumen fumes may cause moderate to severe irritation and burns. Cold bitumen may cause moderate irritation. Bitumen dust may cause irritation characterized by redness and occasional drying and peeling. 
INGESTION: Irritation of gastrointestinal tract, vomiting and a danger of aspiration. Aspiration can develop into potentially fatal chemical pneumonitis. 
INHALATION: Bitumen fumes may cause moderate to severe irritation of the nose, throat and respiratory tract. May cause headache, nausea, sore throat, nasal congestion, dizziness and nervousness. Confined spaces may accumulate hydrogen sulfide gas. Hydrogen sulfide may cause respiratory tract irritation, nausea, headache, dizziness, pulmonary edema, loss of consciousness, brain damage and death. 
EFFECTS OF CHRONIC EXPOSURE: EYES: Effects not reported. SKIN: Repeated exposure to hot bitumen or bitumen fumes may cause inflammation of the skin, acne like lesions, development of horny growths on the skin, darkening of the skin and sensitization of the skin to light. Bitumen may cause hair loss, dryness, scaling, and dermatitis. May aggravate existing skin conditions. Bitumen contains chemicals that may have a carcinogenic potential. 
INGESTION: Effects not reported. 
INHALATION: Prolonged exposure to bitumen fumes may cause inflammation of the lungs and mucous membranes of the nose and throat. May cause chronic bronchitis, pulmonary congestion, laryngitis, hoarseness, coughing, fatigue and atrophy and/or death of the epithelium. May aggravate existing respiratory conditions. 

4. FIRST AID MEASURES EYES
 Immediately flush eyes with water for at least 15 minutes. If irritation persists, seek medical attention.
 SKIN: Remove contaminated clothing. Use a light mineral oil (e.g. baby oil) to help remove bitumen from the skin. Wash affected area with soap and water. Avoid abrading the skin during washing. If irritation persists, seek medical attention. 
INGESTION: DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING BECAUSE OF DANGER OF ASPIRATING LIQUID INTO LUNGS. If spontaneous vomiting occurs, monitor for breathing difficulty. Get immediate medical attention. 
INHALATION: Move victim to uncontaminated area. If breathing has stopped, trained personnel should begin artificial respiration, or, if the heart has stopped, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) immediately. Oxygen may be beneficial if administered by a person trained in its use, preferably on a physician's advice. 
GENERAL: In all cases, seek medical attention.

 

 5. FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
 FLASH POINT:  min 230°C 
AUTO-IGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not available. FIRE & EXPLOSION HAZARDS: Flammable in presence of ignition source when heated above flashpoint temperature. EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Foam, Carbon, Dioxide, dry chemical, water fog. 
Caution: Hot bitumen will react violently with water. FIRE FIGHTING PROCEDURES: DO NOT USE WATER on a bitumen tank fire; it may cause violent eruption and spreading of burning bitumen. Hot material may ignite flammable mixtures (liquids) on contact. Material will not burn unless preheated. Exposed firefighters must wear full bunker gear, including a NIOSH approved positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus with full-face mask. Containers exposed to intense heat from fires should be cooled with water to prevent vapor pressure build-up, which could result in container rupture. Container areas exposed to direct flame contact should be cooled with large quantities of water as needed to prevent weakening of container structure.

 

 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES LEAK AND SPILL PROCEDURE
Shut off fuel source and ventilate spill area. Dike large spills with non-flammable material. Absorb on inert material and place in closed container for recycling or disposal.

 

 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE HANDLING PROCEDURES AND EQUIPMENT
 Avoid excessive heating and oxidizing materials. Wash hands thoroughly after handling
STORAGE REQUIREMENTS: Keep away from heat and flame. Ventilate. Keep containers tightly closed. Hot bitumen reacts violently with water. Keep away from oxidizing materials. 
8. EXPOSURE CONTROLS, PERSONAL PROTECTION ENGINEERING 
CONTROLS: Mechanical ventilation necessary to maintain concentrations below appropriate OEL's. Ventilate confined spaces before entry. 
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Gloves: Acrylonitrile latex. Change if contaminated. Respirator: NIOSH approved air purifying organic vapour.
 Eyes: Safety glasses, monogoggles, or faceshield. Clothing: Coveralls, apron as required
 PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL PROPERTIES APPEARANCE: Black or brownish, tarry texture.
 ODOUR: Solvent-like odour PHYSICAL STATE: Viscous liquid pH: Not applicable VAPOUR PRESSURE: Not available VAPOUR DENSITY (Air = 1): Not available FREEZING/MELTING POINT: Not applicable BOILING RANGE (deg C): IBP 290 °C; 40-45 % boiling at 524 °C SPECIFIC GRAVITY: 1.02 @ 20 °C EVAPORATION RATE (n-Butyl Acetate = 1): Essentially non-volatile at ambient temperatures COEFFICIENT OF WATER/OIL DISTRIBUTION: Not miscible with water ODOUR THRESHOLD: Not available 

8. STABILITY AND REACTIVITY STABILITY: 
Stable CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Not applicable MATERIALS TO AVOID: Strong oxidizing materials. This product may dissolve or soften some plastics. HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Carbon monoxide, Carbon dioxide, oxides of nitrogen and sulphur, soot, uncommuted hydrocarbons.

9. ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION:
 Not available

10. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS WASTE DISPOSAL:
Recycle and reuse material if possible. Off-site spills should be dealt with according to relevant legislation. Bury in approved landfill if acceptable.
