First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Eyes: Irrigate with water for at least 15 minutes.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash with soap and water for at least 15 minutes.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Drink half to one litre of water or milk. Do not induce
vomiting. In all cases seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: In case of fire do not breathe fumes as toxic and corrosive
vapours of hydrogen bromide and/or bromine together with
various organic decomposition products (carbon oxides and
soot) will be present. Wear a self-contained breathing
apparatus. Water, carbon dioxide, foam and dry powder may
be used to extinguish fires.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Absorb onto suitable material (sand, vermiculite) and
remove mechanically. Dispose of waste by incineration.
Avoid contamination of drainage systems and/or watercourses
(inform pollution control authority immediately if this

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid contact with skin. Wear suitable protective clothing
and plastic gloves. Wash hands with soap and water after

Storage: Store closed containers in a dry ventilated area. Avoid
damage to drums

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from spillage into still water is possible as the
substance will separate as a heavy lower layer. In other
situations recovery is not possible

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not possible in view of the low reactivity of the

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: In view of the data currently available, controlled
discharge should not be used

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The best method of disposal is to mix with a suitable fuel
and incinerate. A scrubbing system on the exhaust gases
should be used for removal of hydrogen bromide and bromine.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Do not allow the substance to enter into these systems.
(However, if it does some should be recoverable as it forms
a heavy lower layer).

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will only be used in industry and, therefore,
will not enter the public domain.
