Aerosol cans contain both the product and a pressurized propellant. These products may have hazardous characteristics, such as ignitability (e.g. paints or lubricants) or toxicity (e.g. pesticides or chlorinated cleaning products). Additionally, most aerosol containers pose an ignitability hazard because they contain highly flammable propellants such as propane and butane. Finally, the pressurized aerosol cans themselves may present a safety hazard under heat and/or pressure if not properly managed.
