Voc Testing and Analysis

ISO 17025 Accredited Lab

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are compounds that are emitted from certain solids or liquids either at room temperature or at elevated temperatures. The method utilized for the analysis and detection of VOCs is called static headspace- gas chromatography. The technique involves heating the sample to a predetermined temperature with the resulting vapors (i.e. VOCs) being swept into the analytical column for separation and identification.

ATS tests for VOCs in a variety of products that include:

VOC Testing: Leather, Gasoline and fuel oils, Paints, Plastics and Polymers, Consumer products, Carpet, Automotive interiors, Water, and Fabrics

Test Methods Utilized: EPA Method 24
