English term or phrase: gas tight
Keep receptacle tightly sealed.
Do not seal receptacle gas tight.

Por lo que estuve buscando, gas tight podría ser "hermético", pero tightly sealed también puede ser hermético (si bien me inclino a pensar que es simplemente bien cerrado en este caso). Me gustaría entender bien la diferencia, ya que de lo contrario parecería ser algo contradictorio.

Se trata de un aerosol.

Gracias!
