Chlorofluorocarbon or CFC are a class of chemicals that were used as refrigerants, propellants and solvents few years ago. These were found to degrade ozone layer and hence have been banned in several countries and replacements (mainly hydrofluorocarbon or HFC) are being used. The limited use of CFCs for various items is being stopped and CFCs are in accelerated removal phase around the world.
Pretty much all the items do not contain CFCs, since their use is extremely limited.
Items or products in which CFCs are no longer used include refrigerators, air conditioners, medicinal aerosols (inhalers), shaving cream, foams (earlier used as blowing agent), solvent, degreasing agent, centrifugal chillers, reciprocating & screw chillers.
A number of items are exempt from the ban on CFC in US including aircraft maintenance solvents and creams.
