Volatile Organic Compounds Test
Volatile Organic Compounds Test
Due to their potential adverse impacts on the environment and on human health, VOCs are regulated in the manufacture of many products, especially those for indoor use where concentrations can be highest but also on paints and lacquers. The environmental effects of VOCs include:
- Direct effects and after photochemical conversion to secondary pollutants
- Ground ozone formation
- Damage to materials and buildings
Effects on human health from VOCs tend to be chronic, rather than acute, but can include:
- Skin and eye irritation
- Respiratory illness
As a result, more and more countries have opted for guidelines to reduce concentrations of VOCs in consumer products. You need to be aware of the VOC requirements for your products and its compliance.
