Aerosol-can problem prompts Sherwin-Williams recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Sherwin-Williams will voluntarily recall 3,000 “Hi-Heat” aerosol coating cans because of reports the productcan become over-pressurized and explode.

The company has received one report of a consumer who suffered serious facial injuries, including a broken jaw, broken teeth and nose, split lip and a shattered eye socket, when a can exploded, according to the commission.

The recall involves Thermo-Tec Hi-Heat aerosol coating used to color and protect Thermo-Tec automotive exhaust wrap. The 11-ounce aerosol can is mostly blue with orange and yellow flames and has an aluminum-colored cap.

The product primarily was sold through stores that carry automotive supply items, repair shops and parts suppliers.
