Car drivers will inevitably notice the layer of brake dust on their wheels after driving for a few days. This brake dust can be removed with brake cleaners, either through an aerosol can or a refillable compressed air container.

Aerosol brake cleaners use a propellant, such as carbon dioxide, to push the cleaner up and out of the can for application. On the other hand, refillable compressed air brake cleaners use pressurised air within a metal container to move the cleaner outward.


More cleaner product is available within refillable containers. This is due to the fact that, with each aerosol can purchased, 10 to 15 per cent of the container is strictly propellants, leaving less space for actual brake cleaner.


Environmentally, the use of aerosol cans places more harmful gasses into the atmosphere, contributing to the greenhouse effect and overall planet temperature increase. By using refillable compressed air containers, fewer containers are placed in landfills and only compressed air is released into the atmosphere.
