Hydrobromic AcidHydrobromic Acid (HBr) is a colorless or light yellow liquid with an accrid odor. It is a strong acid used for production of inorganic bromides. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Hydrobromic Acid. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
