First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: Remove to fresh air and obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Flush with clean water for at least 15 minutes. Obtain
medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Flush thoroughly with water. Wash with soap and water. If
the affected area is large or if irritation persists or
develops, obtain medical attention.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Obtain immediate medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water, foam, dry chemical agents, carbon dioxide and halon.

Product arising from burning: Oxides of carbon and nitrogen together hydrogen bromide and

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Protective clothing and a self-contained breathing apparatus
are recommended.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Only authorised trained personnel equipped with
self-contained breathing apparatus protective clothing and
suits should attempt to clear-up leaks or spillages. Contain
spill and use a lime slurry or dry soda ash to neutralise
spills. Vapour release should be controlled with water-fog
if possible.

Anhydrous ammonia should also be available to decontaminate
atmospheric fumes of the substance.

Handling and storage

Handling: Commercial quantities of Liquibrom 2038 should always be
handled in closed systems. The shipping container may also
serve as the on-site storage container. The design of the
point-of-use system may be site-specific. Transfer of the
material from its shipping drum to point-of-use may
generally be accomplished as follows:

1) First install a vacuum breaker to the vent bung of the

shipment/storage drum. The vacuum breaker alleviates the

need to leave the drum open to the atmosphere.

2) Install a dip-tube device fitted with quick-connect hoses

at the main bung of the shipment/storage drum.

3) Quick-connect the dip tube hose to the transfer pump

hose. The system is then ready for material transfer.

Wear goggles or a face shield and neoprene or rubber (not
latex) gloves. Protective clothing consisting of a rubber or
neoprene suit should be worn. In the presence of heavy
vapour concentration wear a self contained (supplied air)
breathing apparatus. For vapour concentration less than

5 ppm (total halogen as chlorine) use a suitable full face
chemical cartridge or chemical canister respirator (e.g.
Seibe Gorman Puretha full-face mask with P canister).

Storage: Store at ambient temperature in sealed containers away from
flammable liquid, alkalis, reducing agents and reactive
metals eg aluminium, titanium and magnesium.

Exposure controls / personal protection

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: The substance is a strong oxidising agent and can react
exothermally with organic chemicals, inorganic compounds and
most elements.

Chemical reaction with water: None, the substance is an aqueous solution.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from spills or water systems is not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The substance can be neutralised by mixing with an alkaline
solution of sodium thiosulfate. (180 lbs (80kg) technical
grade sodium thiosulfate in 50 gallons (270 litres) water,
with 5 lbs (2.2kg) soda ash will neutralise 30 gallons

(165 litres) Liquibrom 2038).


Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Solutions should be neutralised with alkaline sodium
thiosulfate before discharge.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Not recommended; however if used, a scrubber system to
remove nitrogen oxides, bromine and hydrogen bromide should
be fitted.


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Neutralise before discharge with alkaline sodium thiosulfate
and dilute with a large volume of water. The sulfur
liberated can be removed by filtration, the other products
are inorganic bromine salts and a low molecular weight


Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
