SECTION 4 — FIRST AID MEASURES
SECTION 7 — HANDLING AND STORAGE
Avoid contact with eyes, skin and clothing. Wear chemical splash goggles, chemical-resistant gloves and chemical-resistant apron.
Use ventilation to keep airborne concentrations below exposure limits. Always wear a NIOSH-approved respirator with proper
cartridges or a positive pressure, air-supplied respirator when handling this material in emergency situations (spill or fire).Exposure
guidelines: TWA 0.1 PPM, STEL 0.3 PPM (OSHA, NIOSH)
Reddish-brown liquid; pungent chlorine-like odor. Bromine may separate.
Highly toxic by ingestion and inhalation. Severe skin irritant; may cause burns and irreversible eye
damage. Strong oxidizer, heat of reaction may ignite combustibles on contact. Will react with water or
steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes. Extremely hazardous substance.
SECTION 5 — FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Non-combustible liquid. Will react with water or steam to produce toxic and corrosive fumes.
Strong oxidizer; heat of reaction may ignite combustibles on contact.
Fire Fighting Instructions: Use triclass, dry chemical fire extinguisher. Firefighters should wear PPE
and SCBA with full facepiece operated in positive pressure mode.
NFPA Code is for bromine.
