Packaging Compatibility

The compatibility of the aerosol can and valve system with the product to be filled into the aerosol dispenser is critical in order to avoid the failure of the aerosol dispenser. Such a failure may result in the unintended discharge of the product or the complete failure of the aerosol dispenser resulting in instantaneous rupture of the aerosol dispenser.

In order to ensure that such failures of the aerosol dispenser should not occur, the product should be subjected to a stability test which checks the weight loss by the aerosol dispenser over an extended period at an elevated temperature as well as the corrosion or detinning of the aerosol material itself. The parameters which should be monitored during the performance of the stability test, in addition to the adherence to the product specification, are the weight loss of the aerosol dispenser, the spray characteristics of the aerosol dispenser, the complete discharge of the contents of the aerosol dispenser and the structural integrity of the construction of the aerosol dispenser. While the properties of the contents of the aerosol dispenser should be monitored during the performance of stability test, they are not covered by the requirements of this Code. Read more...
