ACUTE EXPOSURE INFORMATION
- WITH POISONING/EXPOSURE
- The majority of hot tar burns involve only 3 to 5% of the body surfaces. Partial thickness burns are most common, but patchy areas of full thickness skin losses are commonly observed.
- Inhalation of hot asphalt fumes can produce eye and respiratory tract irritation, headache, nausea, and nervousness due to the formation of hydrogen sulfide gas.
- Serious hydrogen sulfide poisoning can occur from inhalation of hydrogen sulfide evolved from asphalt in closed tanks. Oral ingestion of cool asphalt is relatively non-toxic.
- Asphalt cooled in a closed tank can evolve high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide gas, carbon monoxide, propane, methane, and other aliphatic hydrocarbons, as well as producing a relatively hypoxic atmosphere.
