Abstract
CFCs have been used extensively in aerosol products, mainly as a propellant but also as a solvent and as the active ingredient in the product. There is a wide variety of alternatives available as substitutes for CFCs in aerosols. The optimal choice varies with the product under consideration. Each alternative has its own unique set of properties such as solvency, performance characteristics, costs, etc.
