Metered Aerosols Have Had Their Time!

Consumers are increasingly aware of the threats that products pose to our planet and future resources. Given this awareness, why would companies continue to choose products laden with health hazard warnings? Metered aerosols not only present significant health risks to users but also have serious environmental impacts. Making sustainable choices today is essential for ensuring future generations can enjoy the wonders of nature.

Here are some of the most common hazards found in metered aerosols:

Health Hazards

  • Harmful if Inhaled: The chemicals used in metered aerosols can be detrimental to respiratory health, leading to chronic issues for employees exposed over long periods.
  • Causes Serious Eye Irritation: Direct contact or even prolonged exposure to aerosol particles can cause severe eye irritation and discomfort.
  • May Cause Drowsiness or Dizziness: Many aerosols contain solvents and other chemicals that can cause dizziness or drowsiness, impairing workplace safety and productivity.

Environmental Concerns

  • Gas Under Pressure: Aerosols contain pressurized gas, which poses a risk of explosion if not stored or disposed of properly.
  • Extremely Flammable: The flammable nature of these products increases the risk of fire, especially in environments with high temperatures or open flames.

Company Image and Reputation

  • Negative Environmental Impact: The use of harmful chemicals and non-recyclable components can damage a company’s reputation in an increasingly eco-conscious market.
  • Potential Regulatory Issues: Stricter regulations on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and hazardous chemicals mean that companies using traditional aerosols risk non-compliance, leading to fines and legal issues.
