Methyl BromideMethyl Bromide (CH3Br) is a colorless volatile liquid, highly toxic, having a sweet odor at high concentrations. It is used as an insecticide, rodenticide, fumigant, nematocide, chemical intermediate, and fire extinguishing agent. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Methyl Bromide. That’s why we suggest one of the following: FIRELoc, SUPERLoc
