ASTM D8142 Testing – VOC

Testing in accordance with ASTM D8142, Standard Test for Determining Chemical Emissions from Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Insulation using Micro-Scale Environmental Test Chambers, is a test standard frequently used to analyze for volatile chemical compound emissions in SPF.  Applied Technical Services provides ASTM D8142 testing with the capability to confirm sampling time to 24 hours (for some compounds such as TCPP).  This testing process identifies volatile organic compounds that emit from SPF products.  Depending on your emission testing needs ATS can analyze samples either pre- or post-application. Analytical data collected from SPF emissions testing can assist in product development, manufacturing quality control, and real-world comparisons.

ATS performs our ASTM D8142 testing services using the microchamber and Thermal Desorption (TD) unit coupled with our gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS) instrumentation to identify and quantify the amount of VOCs present in SPF materials. Reporting specifically identifies the compounds detected during the sampling.

Sampling in Accordance with ASTM D8142 Testing – VOC

The ATS micro-chamber/thermal extractor is used to sample VOCs and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) emitted from SPF.  This sensitive instrument has four small cylindrical chambers that allow for rapid sampling, making TD-GC/MS the most relevant choice for measuring chemical emissions from a wide variety of product and material samples.  Using TD and GC/MS in tandem like this has become a preferable option for various industries to verify regulatory compliance, as it offers quick and inexpensive screening for compounds of interest.
