EC number: 292-607-4
CAS number: 90640-86-1
Distillate from the fractional distillation of coal tar of bituminous coal, with boiling range of 240°C to 400°C (464°F to 752°F). Composed primarily of tri- and polynuclear hydrocarbons and heterocyclic compounds.
INHALATION: If adverse effects occur, remove to uncontaminated area. Give artificial respiration if not
breathing. Get immediate medical attention.
SKIN CONTACT: For thermal burns, cool affected areas as quickly as possible by drenching or immersing in
water until material solidifies. Remove clothing which does not adhere to the body - get medical attention; if
possible continue rinsing until medical treatment is received. When material is not at an elevated temperature:
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: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Then get immediate medical
attention. If burns occur, treat as thermal burns.
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
FIRE AND EXPLOSION HAZARDS: During fire conditions, vapours and decomposition products may be
released, forming flammable/explosive mixtures in air.
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.
Stop leak if possible without personal risk. Reduce vapours with water spray. Absorb with sand or other noncombustible
material. Collect spilled material in appropriate container for disposal. Contact authorities in the
event of pollution of soil and aquatic environment or discharge into drains. Remove contaminated soil.
STORAGE: Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Label all containers.
Earthing and bonding required. Keep away from food, drink and animal feedingstuffs. Keep separated from
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

VENTILATION: Ensure adequate ventilation. A local or process enclosure ventilation system may be necessary. 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. At elevated temperatures: A face-shield is recommended. Provide eye wash bottles in the immediate work area.
CLOTHING: Wear appropriate chemical resistant clothing. At elevated temperatures: Wear appropriate heat resistant clothing. 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. At elevated temperatures: Wear appropriate heat resistant gloves.
PROTECTIVE MATERIAL TYPES: polyethylene/ethylene vinyl alcohol laminate, protective skin cream, heat resistant material
RESPIRATOR: Individuals at risk to inhalation of gas or vapours must use a respirator which conforms to EN140, with Type A filter conforming to EN141.
REACTIVITY: Stable at standard temperatures and pressure.
CONDITIONS TO AVOID: Avoid heat, flames, sparks and other sources of ignition. Containers may rupture or explode if exposed to heat. Avoid
contact with incompatible materials.
INCOMPATIBILITIES: oxidising materials.
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: 050699 (waste from pyrolysis of coal, other non-specified waste).
