Check out the smaller computer sales stores. There is usually a stock of keyboard duster on hand, same price as the larger chains, just find them and it, check the ingredients. 90% of my duster (when I bought it, before propane) came from this type of store, a small computer sales/upgrade type business. Also look into places such as Future Active and other electronics type stores for it, but ask for electronics freeze spray or something along those lines. It's used to rapidly cool down things such as CPUs to try to detect heat related problems. The freeze spray tends to be tetraflourothane as well, just the way you load your mags is different. Where with duster you hold the can upside down to get the liquid in the mag, the freeze spray you hold right-side-up. Duster spits out in a pressurized vapour, freeze spray spits out in a cold liquid. Same shit, but duster has no internal tube, where freeze spray has a tube like spray paint that loads from the bottom instead.

I don't think the dust off stuff is tetra, I believe it's only di-fluoroethane

Duster troubles

I think you will see the tetraflouroethane disappear as it is actualy illegal to vent this gas into the atmosphere... it is a known ozone degrader.
It was used as a refrigerant gas... but no more due to the restrictive licenses and special handeling required.

This is why you see this type of gas duster gas being replaced with Diflouroethane.. it is not a proscribed gas.

Many retailers are not replenishing their stocks of tetraflouroethane,, and some brands that used to be tetra are now diflouroethane.

go Propane!!

Last I was there, Grand and Toy here in Winnipeg stocked Tetra. Some Radio Shacks I've checked in the past (before they became The Source) stocked Difluoro, so it seems to depend on the location with the Shack.

Hmm, guess I should take up that guy's offer on a bulk order of tetra duster...

Anyone want to join in? I'd be down for a few cans. Retail is around $12.99 (was on sale for $10.99) but apparently they can do "much better" on a bulk order of several cases. Don't ask for a firm price because I don't have one. If interested, PM me with desired quantity and I'll see if there's enough interest to warrant troubling them for a price quote.

Its the Fellow ones. And yes it says Tetra-goodness
