ISO 12219-3 VOC Testing
Applied Technical Services conducts ISO 12219-3 VOC testing to identify the presence and content of VOCs. VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) are chemicals that will emit as a gas at room temperature or higher. They are present in many common materials, including the fabrics, adhesives, leathers, and types of vinyl used on the interior of cars. These compounds can be organic or manmade and will give off an odor. VOCs negatively impact air quality and can pose a risk to human health. Therefore, governing bodies such as the EPA have regulated the emission of volatile organic compounds. Several methods and standards are available for VOC testing. Various time frames, applications, testing requirements apply, and some are manufacturer-specific. At ATS, we offer a wide variety of VOC testing options.
