BMW VOC Testing

chemical analysis

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) affect the air quality of vehicle compartments, which is commonly associated with that “new car smell.”  Automobile odor is a result of chemical emissions (off-gassing) from plastics, adhesives, coatings, foams, textiles, and leathers.  Applied Technical Services is an industry leader in automotive materials testing and performs BMW VOC testing for the German automaker and its parts suppliers.  Our experienced chemical analysis team supports OEM suppliers by helping them meet applicable specifications and requirements to bring their products to market.

Improving and managing car interior air quality by reducing the presence of off-gassing VOCs is imperative to passenger health.  In confined passenger spaces, VOC chemicals can concentrate to a point where they reach negative levels and can be released by high temperatures or a combination of heat and ultraviolet light.  VOC regulatory and voluntary standards constitute a critical quality control issue for the automotive industry.

Our chemical analysis lab performs BMW VOC testing using advanced Thermal Desorption (TD) and chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) instrumentation to measure the amount of volatile organic content present and identify compounds extracted from a sample.

Applied Technical Services’ lab maintains an ISO 17025 accreditation to perform a variety of VOC testing standards directly related to automotive interior parts that include:
