Sun tan oil aerosol use. Woman spraying sun tan oil on herself on a beach while sunbathing. This is an example of the use of Freon in aerosols. Freon is a trademark used by the DuPont Company to refer to a mix of liquefied fluorinated hydrocarbons as a propellant in aerosols to generate the dispensing pressure. Freon was developed by DuPont in the 1930s. Such chemicals, known generally as CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) were banned by the Montreal Protocol in 1987 due to their contribution to ozone depletion in the upper atmosphere. This image is from DuPont Product Information Photographs. It dates from around the 1950s.
