NOTE: See Section 8 for permissible exposure limits.
SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Blue liquid with no odor.
Caution: May cause irritation to skin, eyes and respiratory system. Harmful by ingestion. Avoid breathing vapors.
Contains a potential teratogen. May cause chronic toxic effects.
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYE: Contact may cause eye irritation.
SKIN: May cause skin irritation.
SeaKlear: Problem Klear
Page Number: 2 of 7
INHALATION: May cause irritation to the respiratory tract. Additional effects may include coughing and
shortness of breath. Contact with acids will release sulfur dioxide and/or hydrogen sulfide gas which may be
harmful or deadly if inhaled.
INGESTION: May cause vomiting, digestive disorders, high blood pressure, kidney damage, paralysis and
coma.
CHRONIC EXPOSURE/CARCINOGENICITY: None of the components present in this material at
concentrations of equal to or greater than 0.1% are listed by IARC, NTP, OSHA or ACGIH as a carcinogen.
See Section 11 for additional chronic effects.
AGGRAVATION OF PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: None known.
POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Sodium bromide is an organic salt, which fully dissociates in aquatic
environment to bromide and sodium ions. It also undergoes degradation in soil to bromide ion (no further degradation or
biodegradation will occur.)
SECTION 4: FIRST AID MEASURES
FIRST AID PROCEDURES
EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Hold eyelids open.
Contact a physician.
SKIN CONTACT: Immediately wash skin contaminated skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
Remove contaminated clothing and wash before re-use. Contact a physician.
INHALATION: Remove victim from exposure to fresh air. Seek medical advice if effects persist.
INGESTION: If swallowed do NOT induce vomiting. Give water if able to swallow. Never give anything by
mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician.
NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: None.
SECTION 5: FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
FLASH POINT: Not available
UPPER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
FLAMMABLITY CLASS (OSHA): Not applicable
AUTOIGNITION TEMPERATURE: Not available
LOWER FLAMMABLE LIMIT: Not available
FLAME PROPAGATION/BURNING RATE: Not available
UNIQUE FIRE PROPERTIES: None known.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: May generate bromine gas in the presence of strong oxidizing agents.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use extinguishing media appropriate for surrounding fire.
PROTECTION OF FIREFIGHTERS: Avoid breathing fumes. Move containers from fire area if able to do so without
risk. Prevent runoff into water sources.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: See Section 8 (Personal Protective Equipment).
SeaKlear: Problem Klear
Page Number: 3 of 7
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: Use appropriate containers to avoid environmental contamination.
METHODS FOR CLEANING UP: Clean up spill immediately. Contain and/or absorb spill with inert material (e.g.,
sand or vermiculite). Flush spill area with water.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
SAFE HANDLING RECOMMENDATIONS
VENTILATION: Use in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
FIRE PREVENTION: No special precautions.
SPECIAL HANDLING REQUIREMENTS: Do not inhale. Do not get in eyes, on skin or clothing. Wash
thoroughly after handling. Wash clothing after use.
SAFE STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
CONTAINMENT: No special containment.
STORAGE ROOM RECOMMENDATIONS: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Keep away from strong acids and strong oxidizing agents.
Corrosive to aluminum.
STORAGE CONDITIONS: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Local exhaust.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: For operations where eye or face contact can occur, wear chemical, splash proof
goggles or face shield.
SKIN PROTECTION: For operations where skin contact can occur, wear impervious clothing such as apron,
boots, or whole bodysuit.
HAND PROTECTION: Use chemical resistant gloves.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: A respiratory protection program that meets OSHA’s 29 CFR 1910.134 and
ANSI Z88.2 requirements must be followed whenever workplace conditions warrant a respirator’s use. A
NIOSH/MSHA approved air-purifying respirator with a dust/mist cartridge or canister may be permissible under
certain circumstances where airborne concentrations are expected to exceed exposure limits. Protection
provided by air purifying respirators is limited. Use a positive pressure air supplied respirator if there is any
potential for an uncontrolled release, exposure levels are not known or any other circumstances where airpurifying respirators may not provide adequate protection.
GOOD HYGEIENE/WORK PRACTICES: Always follow good hygiene/work practices by avoiding vapors or
mists and contact with eyes and skin. Thoroughly wash hands after handling and before eating or drinking.
Always wear the appropriate PPE when repairing or performing maintenance on contaminated equipment.

TERATOGENIC EFFECTS: Sodium bromide has been shown to cause embryo-fetal toxicity and
malformations in rats at dose levels which also produce maternal toxicity. The No-Observed Effect Level
(NOEL) is 100 mg/kg per day, and the acceptable daily intake (ADI) for sodium bromide from food and
drinking water in humans is 1 mg/kg per day. Comparable high doses of sodium chloride (table salt) similarly
cause malformation, embryo-fetal toxicity, and maternal toxicity in mice.
MUTAGENICITY: Does not induce DNA repair in cultured human epitheliod cells. Not clastogenic in human
lymphocytes metaphase analysis. Not mutagenic by the Ames test.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Sodium bromide is an organic salt, which fully dissociates in aquatic environment to
bromide and sodium ions. It also undergoes degradation in soil to bromide ion (no further degradation or
biodegradation will occur.)
