seek medical attention.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash affected area with plenty of water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical attention.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water may be used.

Product arising from burning: Products of combustion may contain oxides of carbon,
nitrogen and hydrogen bromide gas and some soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Protective equipment and a self-contained breathing
apparatus should be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Wear suitable protective clothing (see 2.3.1) Sweep and
shovel spill into an empty plastic-lined labelled

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery by mechanical collection. [A611]

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incinerator with flue gas scrubbing to remove oxides of
nitrogen and hydrogen bromide should be fitted. The aqueous
solution should be concentrated before incineration. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: The substance will only enter the public domain in the form
of photographic products that can be disposed of as domestic
waste.
