In this work, the solubilities of blowing agents trichlorofluoromethane (CFC-11), dichlorodifluoromethane (CFC-12), chlorodi-fluoromehane (CFC-22), and 1,2-dichloro-1, 1,2,2-tetra-fluoroethane (CFC-114) in thermoplastic resins poly(styrene) (PS), high density poly(ethylene) (HDPE), low density poly(ethylene) (LDPE), poly(propylene) (PP), poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC), poly(carbonate) (PC) and poly(propylene oxide) (PPO) were modeled at several temperatures by using the Perturbed Chain-Statistical Associating Fluid Theory (PC-SAFT) (2) and the Sanchez-Lacombe (SL) (3) equations of state (EoS), by fitting one temperature-dependent binary interaction parameter.

While trichlorotrifluoroethane is exempt under California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations for smog forming compounds and is classed as |negligibly reactive' under the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) definition of a VOC, it actually destroys ozone in the stratosphere with a depleting potential of 0.8 of trichlorofluoromethane (Freon 11; standard).
