Strong incident sunlight perhaps lensed by a freak something on a window? how long will the can hold out in that configuration?

It's a bit like what do you call a flask with LN2 in it and the top clamped down? A bomb. I used to go get LN2 in smaller flasks and the tops would be clamped down, for transport back to the lab but NEVER whilst on the bench. Pit it down, let the clips off.

Any volatile liquid which can go gaseous in higher temperatures in a closed container can go boom under the right circumstances.

Also what is this can made of? Rust vulnerable mild steel by any chance? Or UV and time devolving plastic?
