Handling/Disposal
Handling:
Pressurised container: protect from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures exceeding 50 deg C (120 deg F). Do not pierce or burn after use. Keep away from all sources of ignition. Fires involving aerosols with flammable contents are severe and can spread quickly. Warehouses or stores containing aerosols should therefore be separated from other areas by a fire resistant construction. Stores should be well ventilated. The natural ventilation in a large open warehouse building will normally be suitable. Use good industrial hygiene practices in handling this material. When using do not eat or drink.
DO NOT reuse batteries. Batteries contain 0%mercury/0%lead/0%cadmium.

Disposal:
Dispose in accordance with all applicable regulations.
