Pretty good.

Except here:
Do not use on or around flammable material or dry grass. // Ne pas utiliser sur près de substances inflammables ou sur de l'herbe sèche
"ou" is without an accent.

"ou" mean "or"
"où" mean "where"

What about about "despositif", device?

Also for the description of flash, are we going with lumière or e'clair? I have lumière in the descriptions below.
Sounds good to me.

"Flash" is hard to accurately translate, I'd go with :

Explodes with flash // Explose avec un flash lumineux.

But lumière is good.

For "engin" vs "dispositif", those are synonyms. They both mean the same thing.

Looking at other instruction books makes me think "dispositif" is the most commonly used.

And just to reassure you, this is international french. No slang has been used in what I've seen up til now.

Great thanks fellas! I'll replace l'engin with dispositif and fix the "au" and that should be that hurdle cleared. I may hit you guys up again when we need to do box/case labeling.
