Aerosol format appeals to 9 out of 10 consumers – new survey from BAMA

The vast majority of consumers – 92% – say they buy or use aerosols. This was discovered via the recent online omnibus survey undertaken for BAMA by research consultancy, Populus.

It was found that 9 out of 10 people who buy or use aerosols have particular reasons for doing so and understand some of the key and unique benefits.

SSG Valve Production Development On Track


Salvalco Green AirSalvalco’s well-travelled team has now returned from its recent time spent in China.

Major progress has been made with the pre-production moulds which have now been checked, tested and approved by Salvalco’s Production Director Gary Hawthorne, who with two of his colleagues spent almost two weeks checking every dimension of the moulds and the valve pieces being produced.

All is now set for the next phase of testing to begin before full production goes ahead towards the end of the year.

Revolutionary Eco-Valves for a Safer, Cleaner Environment

In the face of growing concern over the years about the dangers of using Liquified Petroleum Gas [LPG] in aerosols, there have been enormous and exciting breakthroughs in aerosol technology. Alternatives to standard aerosol mechanisms are welcomed, due to a number of factors. They are extracted from oil or natural gas, they are a source of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), plus the fact that they can be hazardous to transport. There is also the accepted damaging effect that these sprays have on the environment.

New Uses & New Technology for Aerosol Sprays

Anyone who has been watching the World Cup 2014 in Brazil will have noticed the latest innovation in the referee’s pocket – Vanishing Foam. Vanishing Foam is a wonderful little breakthrough in enforcing the rules of the game. It is used when the defending team feels the need to build a wall to defend a free kick to be taken in a dangerous area of the pitch. Typically, the referee does two things. First, he marks a horseshoe shape around the ball at the spot from where the free kick must be taken. Second, he draws a line 10 metres from the ball, behind which the wall is formed.

One of the fascinating elements to anyone interested in behaviour management is that not a single player has advanced beyond the line drawn by the referee. Nor has a single free kick taker moved the ball outside of the area drawn. Such a small thing – such a simple thing – and the game progresses faster, with less acrimony from both sides, thanks to a small breakthrough in the use of aerosol spray foam.

Eco-Valve – Helping to Bring You Clean Fresh Air

Eco-Valve replaces LPG as an aerosol propellant – This eliminates VOC and gives excellent spray performance from compressed air.

The Salford Valve Company Ltd is a UK company formed to manufacture and to sell a family of newly-designed and patented aerosol ‘Eco-Valves’. These valves will be capable of use in 85-90% of the worldwide aerosol market, which is currently at a volume of 15 billion cans.

Dangerous LPG Replaced by Compressed Air

Salvalco Eco-Valve enables aerosols to use inert compressed gas as the propellant for aerosols (compressed air or nitrogen) – rather than the current use of Liquified Petroleum Gas (propane or similar). LPG is used because it provides ‘flash-vapourisation’ on exit from the aerosol can, and this maintains the delivery and spray characteristics.
