Benefits of Aerosol

Environment

Long thought to be a threat to the environment, aerosol products can actually be beneficial.

  • Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. Aerosol product containers are fully recyclable.
  • Fresher Air. Aerosol-delivered disinfectants reduce the presence of germs on surfaces and unpleasant odors in the air.
  • Lowered Emissions. Automotive maintenance aerosol products are used to clean brake systems, lowering emissions.
  • Cleaner Water. New designs in the aerosol delivery of pesticides and fertilizers originally developed for use at vineyards in California make it possible to apply the insecticide directly to the plants, with little or no toxic chemicals settling onto the ground, preserving the purity of the groundwater.

Health

Aerosol products are used to administer a number of medications and treatments, helping us all breathe a little easier.

  • Pulmonary Therapeutics. Asthma sufferers require a fine mist that can deeply penetrate their bronchial area. Because of the versatility of aerosol delivery technology, asthma inhalers are now able to deliver a mist at just the right particle size and at the proper pressure.
  • Fewer Germs. Via aerosol products, disinfectants (antimicrobials) are thoroughly and easily applied throughout surfaces in hospitals, the home or at school, eliminating bacteria and reducing the threat of disease.
  • First Aid. Cuts and scrapes can be disinfected with a targeted spray that does not require direct contact with the wound, decreasing discomfort and delivering a highly effective amount of untainted disinfectant.
  • Clearer Vision. By using contact lens solutions applied via an aerosol spray, contact wearers no longer have to touch the tiny, delicate lenses.
  • No More Bug Bites. Insect repellents are more thoroughly applied to cover the entire body, protecting users from insect-borne diseases such as Malaria or the West Nile Virus.
  • Breathe Easy. New aerosol-delivered room sprays safely remove airborne bacteria.

Value

The rising use of aerosol technology in common household products reduces waste and increases the value of the purchases you make.

  • Right On Target. Aerosol technology produces precise amounts of product to an exact area, eliminating waste. You can aim and spray exactly where you want to, with maximum effectiveness.
  • No Mess. Aerosol products are also spill-proof.
  • Stays Fresh. Aerosol products are hermetically sealed, meaning no air gets in and no air gets out, like a vacuum, allowing cans to boast a long shelf life.
  • Save Money. Aerosol Duct Sealing prevents leaks in a home’s ductwork, saving up to 30% of the home’s heating or cooling energy.


Convenience

In our “point and click” society, aerosol products are easy to use and quick to apply.

  • Simple. No complicated pieces.
  • One-Step. No mixing or spilling.
  • Push-Button. Disinfectants and bug sprays can be applied with just the touch of a button, no repeat pumping required.
  • Possibilities. Some products we take for granted today would not be possible without aerosol technology, such as shaving cream, and the aforementioned insecticides and asthma inhalers.
  • An Extra Hand. The use of aerosol technology helps you deliver insecticides or disinfectants into hard-to-reach nooks and crannies.

Safety

The design of modern aerosol products increases safety in everyday activity.

  • Good Aim. Insecticides are directed precisely at the target, decreasing the amount of pesticide needed to do the job.
  • Child Resistant. Aerosol cans make it difficult for small children to access the contents.
  • No Stings. Long-range aerosol insecticides protect the user from being too close to dangerous insects, preventing injury from wasp stings or spider bites.
  • Self-Defense. Aerosol technology is used in personal self-defense products such as pepper spray, pepper foam, and pepper foggers.
  • Say No To Drugs. Aerosol technology is being used to fight the war on drugs. Law enforcement officers use a special aerosol spray to identify confiscated illicit substances, or to detect the trace presence of any drug residue left on a surface, even human skin.
