VOC Emissions

VOC Emissions
What Are VOCs?
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted by many common materials at room temperatures. Their presence has a negative effect on air quality, as they are harmful to humans in large quantities. VOCs are thoroughly regulated by industry standards for that reason. Manufacturers and OEMs turn to respected testing companies like Applied Technical Services to perform VOC emissions testing on their products, to ensure they are consumer safe and regulation-compliant.
