Although ER Re sin is not a carcinogen, processes in which GILSONITE is brought to very high temperatures may alter its complex hydrocarbon structure and may produce carcinogenic substances. Thermal cracking of complex hydrocarbon is known to produce polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, some of which are known to be carcinogenic and mutagenic. Ames mutagenicity screening tests were conducted on samples of GILSONITE which were heated. A sample heated to 650°F (343°C) and allowed to cool was found to be mutagenic. In another study, GILSONITE distilled at approximately 2500°F (1371°C) and dissolved in benzene was carcinogenic when applied 3 times a week for 80 weeks to the skin of mice.
