Technician analyzing VOC testing data

ISO 12219-4 Testing

Applied Technical Services performs ISO 12219-4 testing to serve our clients in the automotive manufacturing industry. Many common products and materials emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), including vehicle interior components. VOCs negatively impact air quality, with the potential to irritate the eyes, nose, and throat. People spend a lot of time in cars, so manufacturers must ensure that VOC content does not exceed regulated limits for any interior material. ISO 12219 outlines several methods for testing automotive VOCs, including static chamber, micro-scale chamber, small chamber, and bag testing. Each test targets different types of compounds or materials. ATS performs several of these standards, including ISO 12219-4 testing.
The ISO 12219-4 Testing Standard
ISO 12219-4 is both a quantitative and qualitative method for analyzing emissions from car trim materials. This method uses small test chambers to simulate real service conditions. ISO 12219-4 tests for vapor-phase organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) in a volatility range of n-hexane to n-hexadecane. The standard also covers volatile carbonyl compounds, including formaldehyde.
