Aerosol Product Classification

Aerosol Product Classification

Aerosol products are a serious fire protection challenge because they contain products under pressure that might spray burning material throughout a building when a container fails due to heat. Aerosol products contain a “base,” which is the product being sold (in this example, windshield de-icer) and a “propellant,” which is the pressurized liquid or gas that expels the base product from the container.  This "Coffee Break Training: capsule explains classification for fire protection purposes.
