Coal tar pitch is a chemical that is derived from crude coal tar. Coal tar pitch is primarily used in the aluminum smelting process and in the roofing industry. Therefore, roofers and workers in a variety of industrial settings may be exposed to coal tar pitch on a regular basis. It is widely acknowledged that prolonged, chronic exposure to coal tar pitch can cause cancer of the:

  • Kidneys
  • Bladder
  • Lungs
  • Skin

If you work or worked in the aluminum industry and have any of these cancers, it is possible, and maybe even likely, that exposure to coal tar pitch was the cause of your disease. Many manufacturers of coal tar pitch failed to warn workers about the dangers of these substances.
