A thick, black, tarry liquid, obtained by the distillation of bituminous coal in the manufacture of illuminating gas; used for making printer's ink, black varnish, etc. It is a complex mixture from which many substances have been obtained, especially hydrocarbons of the benzene or aromatic series.
Coal tar is a principal liquid product resulting from the carbonisation of coal, i.e. the heating of coal in the absence of air at temperatures ranging from about 900º to 1,200ºC (1,650º to 2,200ºF). Many commercially important compounds are derived from coal tar, such as dyestuffs and pigments.
A by-product of coal used in the treatment of some skin conditions, such as psoriasis.
Tar distilled from coal that is applied to the skin to treat psoriasis.
A topical treatment that is believed to inhibit the enzymes which contribute to psoriasis in some patients. Coal tar can cause increased sensitivity to sunlight, burning or stinging, and staining of the skin and clothing. LupiCare products do not contain coal tar.
a tar formed from distillation of bituminous coal; coal tar can be further distilled to give various aromatic compounds
Tar obtained by the destructive distillation of bituminous coal, usually in coke ovens or in retorts and consisting of numerous constituents (as benzene, xylenes, naphthalene, pyridine, quinoline, phenol, cresols, light oil, and creosote) that may be obtained by distillation.
A viscous liquid mixture of hydrocarbon compounds, derived, along with coke, from the destructive distillation of coal.
A thick black liquid which can be used for roofing, waterproofing or insulating. It can also be used in the production of dyes, drugs etc.
Tar distilled from bituminous coal applied to the skin to treat psoriasis. Often used with UV light therapy.
A dark brown to black cementitious material produced by the destructive distillation of bituminous coal.
Coal tar preparations have been used to help treat mild and moderate plaque psoriasis for centuries. People apply coal tar products directly to their skin, use them in bath solutions, or apply them as a shampoo. Some combine the treatment with ultraviolet B (UVB) phototherapy.
Thick liquid tar obtained from bituminous coal containing benzene, xylenes, naphthalene, phenol and creosol. A main concern of the FDA is that coal tar causes cancer in animals (and people) beside that they are a frequent source of allergic reactions. The FDA ruled in 1992 that it has shown not to be safe and coal tar also is not effective for some stated cosmetic claims. Most FD&C, D&C, C.I. and aluminum lakes are derived from coal tar. More people consider a this as a hidden health hazard where especially women are most at risk because they use (consume) lipsticks up to 18 hours a day containing a heavy toxic chemical. Not less than up to 14% of this chemical is being used in 99% of all lipsticks available on the market today.....
a dark brown to black colored, semi-solid hydrocarbon obtained as residue from the partial evaporation or distillation of coal tars. Coal tar pitch is further refined to conform to the following roofing grade specifications
a dark brown to black, semi-solid hydrocarbon obtained as residue from the partial evaporation or distillation of coal tar. oal-Tar Felts: a felt that has been saturated with refined coal tar.
A heterogeneous, chemically complex mixture of over 10,000 compounds. A by-product of the distillation of bituminous coal. Has therapeutic effects in dermatologic conditions because it is antimitotic, antipruritic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
Thick, black, opaque liquid, obtained by the destructive distillation of bituminous coal. Synthetic compounds such as dyes, medicines, explosives, perfumes, etc. have been developed from coal tar.
Coal tar is a brown or black liquid of high viscosity, which smells of naphthalene and aromatic hydrocarbons. It is the liquid by-product of the distillation of coal to make coke. The gaseous by-product of this process is commonly known as town gas.
