A can of "compressed air" Ultrtech Power Products Air Duster listed as non-flammable on the front of the can, contains pure compressed R152a. The MSDS states the product 1,1,Difluoroethane as 100% volatile. The can was placed on the dashboard of a truck and ruptured filling the truck with flammable vapors. Any spark from the truck could have ignited the gas. No injuries occurred even though the truck was traveling on an interstate highway. The front windshield was destroyed from the sudden rupture. The product is mislabeled and will pose a threat when a consumer is using the product believing the contents are non flammable when they are highly flammable with an NFPA fire rating of 4.
