4. First Aid Measures

  • General Information:
  • After inhalation:
    The products are usually processed at elevated temperature. The inhalation of the fumes should be avoided.
  • After skin contact:
    Risk of burns when dealing with hot bitumen. After skin contact with hot bitumen do not try to remove the bitumen from the skin. Immediately keep the affected body part under cold running water for at least 10 minutes. In the case of circular bitumen, which can lead to constriction, make an incision. Smaller bitumen sprays can be removed from the skin using either olive oil or paraffin oil. Immediate medical attention is a must.
  • After eye contact:
    If hot bitumen comes into the eye, cool the eye immediately with plenty of cold running water for at least 5 minutes. Get medical attention immediately. If the eye has come into contact with cold bitumen, rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least 5 minutes. If the irritation of the eye persists, consult an ophthalmologist.
  • After swallowing:
    Virtually unthinkable; The toxicity is very low.
  • Notes to physician / treatment:
    Do not attempt to remove adhesive bitumen from the skin. Once the product has cooled down, it is no longer dangerous, but provides for a sterile coverage of the burnt spots. As the healing progresses, the bitumen will dissolve automatically after a few days. If the position of the injury or the nature of the material requires the removal of the adherent bitumen, warm paraffin oil - paraffinum liquidum - may be used. A mixture of paraffin oil and kerosene is also suitable. Caution should be exercised, however, as kerosene may cause skin irritation. When using solvents, wash with water and soap or washing gels which are gentle to the skin. Then apply a suitable greasy cream or a skin cleansing cream. Use only medically approved solvents to remove bitumen from burns, as other agents may cause further damage to the skin.

 

5. Fire Fighting Measures
