    CFC (Chlorofluorocarbon) solvents must be eliminated to prevent damage to the earth's ozone layer. Elimination of all solder fluxes from the soldering process eliminates the need to clean a soldered printed circuit board (PCB) with CFC solvents to prevent the possibility of leaving ionic contamination on the PCB. Thus...
