Aerosol Product Benefits

One of the earliest aerosol product benefits came in World War II when the American military needed a way to protect soldiers from disease carrying mosquitoes. The solution to that problem was development of aerosol technology to deliver insect repellant from a spray can. Since then aerosol products have become a significant part of modern life; making life easier and protecting our health.

Other Benefits Aerosol Products Provide:


Aerosol cans are hermetically sealed, so their contents cannot leak or spill. And aerosol containers are tamper-resistant and tamper- evident.


Aerosol containers are designed to deliver the right amount of product exactly where it’s needed. Using an aerosol package reduces waste and spillage


Aerosol containers control the particle size, the spray pattern, the volume dispensed per second and the concentration of the spray for maximum effectiveness. The hermetically sealed package protects the product and extends its useful life; aerosol paints and finishes, for example, can be stored without risk of evaporation.

Clean and Sanitary Use:

Aerosol products can be applied without contact, protecting users from mess, germs and, in case of burns or lacerations, with a minimum of pain. Family members can hygienically share aerosol personal care products. In addition, the sealed can prevents any product contamination.

Special Products:

Aerosol containers give consumers the use of products— from shaving cream and long-distance spray insecticides to asthma inhalers and other medical products—which would be unavailable otherwise.


Aerosol containers are spill proof, which is helpful for medical and personal care products used by travelers, children, nurses and the elderly. They eliminate the need for mixing containers and applicators. They can be stored and used in the same container, often for long periods of time.
