Tin trou­ble

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Help! -

Has any­one else found that aerosol cans left in sheds on gal­vanised shelves/chip­board will leak their con­tents? Is this some­thing af­fect­ing cans from par­tic­u­lar man­u­fac­tur­ers, as other aerosols have not suf­fered the same fate? Jay Evans

I have come across this on tins which have been sit­ting on metal shelves. I sus­pect the prob­lem is due to con­den­sa­tion be­com­ing trapped in the con­cave base of the tin, pro­mot­ing cor­ro­sion which weak­ens the seams and al­lows the con­tents to leak out. It would be in­ter­est­ing to hear from read­ers if they have ex­pe­ri­enced sim­i­lar prob­lems and which tins were most af­fected.

The reader's tins that have caused prob­lems while sit­ting on a shelf.
