Chlorofluorocarbons - gaseous compounds used in refrigerants and aerosols, which are harmful to the ozone layer.
Chloro Flouro Carbon
a fluorocarbon with chlorine; formerly used as a refrigerant and as a propellant in aerosol cans; "the chlorine in CFCs causes depletion of atmospheric ozone"
Carbon Fiber Composites
Chlorofluorocarbons such as CFC113, used as a solvent for removing flux residues.
Chlorofluorocarbon, a chemical compound found in many aerosol products or manufacturing processes and believed to be responsible for depleting the Earth's diminishing ozone layer.
Chlorofluorocarbons A family of inert, nontoxic, and easily liquefied chemicals used in refrigeration, air conditioning, packaging, insulation, or as solvents and aerosol propellants. CFCs drift into the upper atmosphere where their chlorine components destroy ozone.
Chlorofluorocarbon, any of various compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen, chlorine, and flourine used as refrigerants, now thought to be harmful to the earth's atmosphere
Any of various halocarbon compounds consisting of carbon, hydrogen, chlorine, and fluorine, once used widely as aerosol propellants and refrigerants. Chlorofluorocarbons are believed to cause depletion of the atmospheric ozone layer.
Chlorofluorocarbons. A fully halogenated molecule which contains one, two or three carbon atoms and at least one atom each of chlorine and fluorine. Although chemically inert in the lower atmosphere ( troposphere), CFC decomposes under UV radiation, in the stratosphere, where it releases chlorine, which destroys ozone. CFCs are used as refrigerants, solvents, and foam blowing agents. The manufacture and use of CFCs in industry has been severely curtailed following the Montreal Protocol and subsequent amendments. For further information about CFC, see the CFC table and the NOAA Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory site.
a chlorofluorocarbon that is now not allowed to be used as a refrigerant, typically R11 or R12
Chlorofluorocarbon. A vehicle air conditioning system that uses R-134a refrigerant instead of CFC-based chemicals (usually known as Freon).
Chlorinated Fluorocarbon; illegal to use.
A class of refrigerants. Generally refers to the Chlorofluorocarbon family of refrigerants. Sometimes called Freon
Chlorofluorocarbon, ozone depleting substances, used as a refrigerant in mechanical refrigeration systems; phased out under Montreal Protocol
A non-radiatively active anthropogenic compound made of one or two carbon atoms, chlorine, and fluorine; CFC's interact with UV radiation to chemically destroy ozone in the stratosphere.
a fluid used as a refrigerant in an EES; toxic if released into the air. Non-toxic refrigerants are now being produced (also see Refrigerant).
