OEMs and VOCs
Applied Technical Services performs PV 3942 testing to help clients determine the VOC content in their sample. Automotive companies and their suppliers must meet internal industry standards and regulations to limit the potential for passenger exposure to volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Automotive interior components have been identified as a specific concern by regulatory bodies because:
To ensure that their products meet these emission standards, OEMs and parts suppliers turn to third-party testing labs to determine the VOC content in their vehicle interior materials. ATS offers our expertise in performing chamber testing to answer these needs.
