Several aerosol propellant applications of chlorofluorocarbons were examined to identify existing and technologically feasible alternatives. Associated cost factors were also considered. Interested parties brought these chlorofluorocarbon applications to the attention of an interagency work group (EPA, FDA, and CPSC) as being possible 'essential uses' of these substances. The applications examined under the task were: agents for latent fingerprint development, anti-spatter compounds for welding, aerosol spray to produce smoke or fog, spray mold release agent for medicine tablets, leather spray polish preservative, high voltage spray insulation, clipper coolants and lubricants, moisture removal spray, engine degreasers, electric shaver cleaners and lubricants, aircraft deodorant spray, products for the airline industry, and contact cleaner/lubricant.
