Sherwin-Williams Recalls 'Hi-Heat' Aerosol Cans after One Explodes

The Sherwin-Williams Co. (Cleveland) is recalling about 3,000 Hi-Heat Aerosol Coating Cans. The aerosol cans can over-pressurize and explode, posing a risk of injury to consumers. Sherwin-Williams has received one report of a consumer who suffered serious facial injuries including a broken jaw, broken teeth and nose, a split lip, and a shattered eye socket when a can exploded.

The recall involves Thermo-Tec Hi-Heat aerosol coating used to color and protect Thermo-Tec automotive exhaust wrap. The part number (#12002) is printed above the UPC, and the date code (#B1815) is written on the bottom of the can. The 11-ounce aerosol can is mostly blue with orange and yellow flames and has an aluminum-colored cap. The can states "HI-HEAT COATING 2000°F" in large white letters on the front of the can.

Automotive supply stores, repair shops, and parts suppliers nationwide sold the equipment from August 2005 through June 2007 for about $20. Consumers should not handle the cans and contact Sherwin-Williams immediately. A representative will be dispatched within 48 hours to safely collect the recalled cans. Consumers will be sent a $15 check for each recalled can that is collected. For more information, call Sherwin-Williams at (800) 523-9299 or visit www.sherwin-williams.com.
