SECTION 3: HAZARDS IDENTIFICATION
EMERGENCY OVERVIEW
Odorless white crystalline solid.
WARNING! Harmful if swallowed. May be harmful if inhaled. May cause eye and skin irritation (see below under
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS).
POTENTIAL HEALTH EFFECTS
EYE: Mild irritant.
SKIN: Not an irritant to intact skin. Slight irritant to abraded skin.
.
INHALATION: Irritant to upper respiratory tract. May cause respiratory depression.
SeaKlear: Yellow Klear
Page Number: 2 of 7
INGESTION: May cause drowsiness, muscular in coordination, abdominal pain, nausea, and/or vomiting if
ingested.
CHRONIC EXPOSURE/CARCINOGENICITY: Repeated skin contact may cause dermatitis. Repeated oral
intake of bromides (>9 mg/kg body weight/day) may affect the central nervous system. Warning symptoms
include mental dullness, slurred speech, weakened memory, apathy, anorexia, constipation, drowsiness, and loss
of sensitivity to touch and pain.
This material is not known to cause cancer in animals or humans.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF OVEREXPOSURE: May cause respiratory depression, stinging, burning, and/or
coughing if inhaled. May irritate eyes with stinging, watering, inflammation. May irritate skin with redness,
swelling, and scab formation. May cause drowsiness, muscular in coordination, abdominal pain, nausea, and/or
vomiting if ingested.
AGGRAVATION OF PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS: None known.
POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS: Sodium bromide is an inorganic 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 with large amounts of water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the
upper and lower eyelids. Call a physician at once.
SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing, wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and plenty of water for at
least 15 minutes. Wash clothing before re-use. Get medical attention if irritation occurs.
INHALATION: Remove to fresh air. If breathing is difficult, administer oxygen. If not breathing, give artificial
respiration. Call a physician.
INGESTION: Do not induce vomiting unless directed to do so by medical personnel. Wash mouth thoroughly
with plenty of water and give water to drink. Do not give anything by mouth if the person is unconscious. Call a
physician at once.
NOTE TO PHYSICIANS: Not available.

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: Will decompose from 800oC releasing poisonous and corrosive fumes of hydrogen
bromide and sodium oxide.
HAZARDOUS COMBUSTION PRODUCTS: Will decompose from 800oC releasing poisonous and corrosive fumes of
hydrogen bromide and sodium oxide.
EXTINGUISHING MEDIA: Use extinguishing media appropriate to surrounding fire.
SeaKlear: Yellow Klear
Page Number: 3 of 7
PROTECTION OF FIREFIGHTERS: Use water to cool containers exposed to fire. Provide firefighters with selfcontained breathing apparatus in positive pressure mode.
SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: See Section 8 (Personal Protective Equipment).
ENVIRONMENTAL PRECAUTIONS: Sodium bromide is an inorganic 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.)
METHODS FOR CLEANING UP: Sweep up and place in bag and half for waste disposal or possible re-use. Ventilate
are and wash spill site after material pickup is complete.
SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE
SAFE HANDLING RECOMMENDATIONS
VENTILATION: Use with adequate ventilation.
FIRE PREVENTION: No special requirements, material is not flammable.
SPECIAL HANDLING REQUIREMENTS: Avoid bodily contact. Wash hands thoroughly after handling.
SAFE STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS
CONTAINMENT: Keep container closed when not in use.
STORAGE ROOM RECOMMENDATIONS: Keep in a well-ventilated room away from incompatible materials.
INCOMPATIBLE MATERIALS: Strong acids, strong oxidizers, heavy metal salts. Reacts explosively with
bromine trifluoride.
STORAGE CONDITIONS: Do not allow product to be heated above 800oC.
SECTION 8: EXPOSURE CONTROLS/PERSONAL PROTECTION
ENGINEERING CONTROLS: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep
airborne below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fumes or mist, use ventilation to keep
exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limits.
PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)
EYE/FACE PROTECTION: Wear safety glasses with side shields or goggles.
SKIN PROTECTION: Lab coat.
HAND PROTECTION: Wear gloves.
RESPIRATORY PROTECTION: Use a dust mask/respirator. 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.
SeaKlear: Yellow Klear
Page Number: 4 of 7
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.

SECTION 11: TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION
ORAL LD50 (rat): 4200 mg/kg
DERMAL LD50 (rabbit): >2000 mg/kg
DERMAL LD50 (rat): >2000 mg/kg
INHALATION LC50 (rabbit): Not available.
SKIN IRRITATION (rabbit): Not an irritant
SeaKlear: Yellow Klear
Page Number: 5 of 7
EYE IRRITATION (rabbit): Slightly irritating
SKIN SENSITIZATION (guinea pig): Not a sensitizer
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
MUTAGENICITY: Does not induce DNA repair in cultured human epitheliod cells. Not clastogenic in human
lymphocytes metaphase analysis. Not mutagenic by the Ames test.
REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY: 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/day, and the acceptable daily intake (ADI) for sodium bromide from food and drinking
water in humans is 1 mg/kg/day. Comparable high doses of sodium chloride (table salt) similarly cause
malformations, embryo-fetal toxicity, and maternal toxicity in mice.
SECTION 12: ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION
ECOTOXICITY: Not available.
MOBILITY: Not available.
PERSISTENCE AND DEGRADABILITY: Not available.
BIOACCUMULATIVE POTENTIAL: Not likely to occur since this material is highly soluble in water.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
ENVIRONMENTAL FATE: Sodium bromide is an inorganic 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.)

96 HOUR LC50 (rainbow trout): >1000 mg/l
96 HOUR LC50 (bluegill sunfish): >1000 mg/l
48 HOUR EC50 (daphnia magna): >1000 mg/l
AVIAN TOXICTY:
ORAL LD50 (bobwhite quail): >2250 mg/kg
DIETARY LC50 (mallard duck): >5633 ppm
DIETARY LC50 (bobwhite quail): >5633 ppm
