Typhoon Blast 70 Duster
Typhoon Blast™ and Typhoon Surge™ are the newest class of dusters from Chemtronics, specifically formulated to minimize the use of global warming compounds. They are formulated with HFO-1234ze, a new material that has a significantly lower global warming potential (GWP) than previous materials used for dusters. This new material has a GWP of less than 1, and compares very favorably to HFC-134a (GWP of 1300) and HFC-152a (GWP of 140). In addition, since it has a short atmospheric lifetime with a very low photochemical ozone creation potential, it is not expected to be classified as a VOC.

Is there something I can do with the extension tube (straw) so it doesn’t get lost?
The red cap on Chemtronics aerosol products like flux removers, degreasers, and Freeze-It Freeze Spray has a notch on the top. That is engineered for the straw to snap in and hold into place so you don’t loose it. The aerosol trigger sprayers that are common on dusters, freeze sprays, and flux removers, have two ways to store the straw when not in use. The hole at the back of the body of the sprayer is just the right size for the straw to slide into place for storage. The slot below the trigger is also the right size for the straw to snap into place, which also has the advantage of locking the trigger.
How do I figure out the shelf life of a product?
The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to https://www.chemtronics.com/coc. Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers: https://www.chemtronics.com/batch-codes.
Is air duster (canned air) safe on my computer and other electronics?
Yes, air duster is generally designed for use on electronics. There are a few things to watch out for: 1) avoid spraying the refrigerant liquid, which can happen if you shake the can, or angle it too much. The refrigerant is very cold, so can damage some sensitive electronics. 2) Avoid cheap retail dusters that contain bitterant. Many retail dusters have bitterant added to prevent huffing. When duster is used in the home, there is concern that the material will be purposely inhaled (called “huffing” or “dusting”) by minors, which can sometimes lead to tragic consequences. To avoid this, bitterant is added to make the duster taste bad. This same bitterant can lead to unwanted and potentially harmful residues on sensitive surfaces like electronic circuit boards.
How long does a can of air duster (canned air) last?
That depends on the size of the can and how much you use it. If the can and valving is intact and undamaged, it will not leak or spoil, so can sit on a shelf for many years.
How do you use air duster (canned air)?
The can of duster must be held in an upright position when spraying. Do not tilt can more than 40 degrees during spraying operation or shake during use. Before use, press actuator to clear valve of any liquid product. Extension tube can be used to remove dust in tight areas. Use short bursts to prevent cooling of can.
