Hazards 1272/2008 (CLP) + additional classification: 67/548/EEC:
Resulting from not classified not classified
For humans: Not classified not classified In normal usage conditions the product is hot. It may cause burns and emits vapours. When working with hot bitumen any contact with vapours must be avoided.
In case of prolonged storage in closed containers, hydrogen sulphide may be released from bitumen, with concentration reaching hazardous levels.
For environment: Not classified not classified In normal usage conditions it presents no hazard to aqueous and terrestrial organisms. However, in case of building and insulation works it is necessary to heat upthe product, which causes the release of vapours and their emission into the atmosphere.
2.2. Label elements
Signal word: None
Hazard statements: None
Precautionary statements: None

SECTION 3. COMPOSITION / INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS
Substance name Formula: % by weight CAS No EC No Index No
Oxidized bitumen Not applicable 100 64742-93-4 265-196-4 Not applicable
A complex substance composed of heavy vacuum distillate (known as flux) and residues from vacuum distillation of crude oil, containing hydrocarbon compounds having carbon numbers predominantly higher than C25, small amounts of elements (S, N, O, metals) subjected to oxidation by air.
SECTION 4. FIRST-AID MEASURES
4.1. Description of first-aid measures
Immediately move the affected person to fresh air, place the person in a lying position, loosen the clothes; if the person is not breathing, give artificial respiration; if no heartbeat is detected, apply external cardiac massage combined with artificial respiration using a respirator, cover the affected person, ensure a calm atmosphere; do not administer any fluids to unconscious persons and persons with disturbance of consciousness. Transport the affected person in a recovery position.
Cool the burn area as quickly as possible to reduce further heat-related injuries. Cool the burn area with cold
Running water for at least 10 minutes. Avoid excessive cooling of the body.
Do not attempt to remove
Bitumen from the burn area. Upon cooling down, bitumen forms a waterproof, sterile layer on the burn
Surface, protecting it from drying. Polluted clothing may be taken off, provided that it has not stuck to the skin.
Flush thoroughly with a slow stream of potable running water for at least 15 minutes with eyelids retracted, remove contact lenses, do not wipe the eyes, place a sterile, loose dressing on the eyes; consult an ophthalmologist.
Do not induce vomiting as the product may get into the respiratory tract.
Do not administer any oral medication. If no improvement is observed, seek medical assistance.
4.2. Most important symptoms and effects, both acute and delayed
4.3. Indication of any immediate medical attention and special treatment needed
In case of an accidental contact of hot bitumen with skin, do not attempt to remove the bitumen. In each of the cases listed above, if the symptoms persist, seek medical attention immediately or take the affected person to hospital, showing the product packaging or label.
SECTION 5. FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES
5.1. Extinguishing media
Suitable extinguishing media: Carbon dioxide, dry chemical, expansion foam, sand, diffused water currents,
Unsuitable extinguishing media:
Do not use dense water streams on the surface of molten bitumen
Due to the hazard of violent splatter of hot bitumen. Water may be used only to cool down hot surfaces.
5.2. Special hazards arising from the substance or mixture
Sticking of hot bitumen to body and clothing.
Foaming and splatter occur when the hot product has Contact with water. During fire, released gases and vapours are heavier than air and can collect in depressions, spread just above the ground within a certain distance from the source of fire and present a new combustion hazard.
As a result of fire the following compounds are formed: carbon monoxide, a compound mixture of bitumen millings, and - depending on composition - small amounts of sulphur oxides, nitric oxides and metallic oxide fumes.
5.3. Advice for fire-fighters
Small fires should be extinguished with sand, a dry powder extinguisher or carbon dioxide extinguisher; large
Fires should be extinguished with expandable foam and diffused water currents.
Persons participating in fire extinguishing operations should be trained, wear a full set of anti-static
Protective clothing and equipment isolating the respiratory tract.
SECTION 6. ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
6.1. Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures
The use of personal protection measures is recommended - see Section 8 of the MSDS. Avoid direct contact with the released material due to the risk of thermal burns. Avoid inhaling vapours. Immediately secure the source of discharge: cut off the fluid feed; protect against contact with water or other fluids; eliminate all possible sources of ignition – extinguish open fire, declare no-smoking zone; restrict personnel access to the discharge area and the directly adjacent area; ensure a clear escape route; evacuate all persons who do not participate in the firefighting activities from the endangered area. In case of larger spillages call the chemical rescue service and secure the spillage, preventing it from spreading by digging a ditch or building a barrier of sand, earth or other material.
6.2. Environmental precautions
Prevent release of the product to storm drains and water bodies. If released to water bodies, notify relevant authorities.
6.3. Methods and material for containment and cleaning up
Wait until bitumen cools down and hardens. Collect using available equipment and place in a marked, tight container. Dispose of in compliance with applicable regulations.
Attention! Materials like rags, paper, etc. which are soaked with the product present a fire hazard. Prevent accumulation of those materials and dispose of them safely.
6.4. Reference to other sections
See also Sections 8 and 13 of the MSDS.
SECTION 7. HANDLING AND STORAGE
7.1. Precautions for safe handling
Reduce fire hazard by using machines and devices in such a way as to:
