Hydrogen Bromide Supplier to Mexico

Hydrogen Bromide (Br), a colorless, corrosive, irritating, toxic gas delivered in a liquid state by cylinders under its own vapor pressure, is one more benignly useful PurityPlus® specialty gas available to Mexico clients from Criogas.

This gas results from the direct reaction of high-purity hydrogen with elemental bromine and the carefully regulated reaction of sulfuric acid on certain brominated metals.

Hydrogen Bromide typically has been found useful for fumigation in agriculture. Lesser quantities are used as a catalyst in pharmaceuticals. Earlier on, it was also widely used in the synthesis of HALON compounds used in fire-suppression systems. The reason for this is, the HALON compounds thus produced are high-density inert gases that can eliminate ground-level oxygen to quench a fire in a tight space with only the lightest damage to property. HBr more recently has found use as a stratospheric ozone depleter and, that being the case, its use as a fumigant has been limited to conditions in which total recovery is possible. HALON fire-suppression systems subject to existing chemical inventories as more environmentally preferred alternatives become available.

Higher purities of Hydrogen Bromide are used by the electronics industry in some unique plasma etching processes.
