About the product

Historically, the fully halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) used by the foam plastics manufacturing industry have been extremely varied. This report details for each foam type the technically viable options available to eliminate CFC use as of 1998. Updates are given on the progress made by each product group in reducing CFC consumption and a status report on transition out of CFCs across major geographical regions are included.
