Answered: Legality of "Canned Air"

Over the past three years of competition my teams have been told that “Canned Air” like that sold as a computer electronics cleaner is illegal and should result in a disqualification. Recently at the U.S. Open there were multiple teams using it field side then going right back into competition. Then I heard someone say it was legal at the pit area, but not the fields. On further check of the forum I can’t see a ruling either way. Is “Canned Air” legal at the field and at the pits?

Thank you in advance for helping us stay legal!

Spraying “canned air” on your robot is legal.

Thank you Karthik.

You’re welcome!
