VOC Testing & Analysis
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are compounds that are emitted from specific solids or liquids at room temperature or higher, their ‘volatile’ nature attributed to the fact that they have a high vapour pressure, resulting in many molecules being released into the air.
VOCs – including Semi-Volatile and Very-Volatile permeations are extremely varied and may come from natural or synthetic sources, and in some cases may have long term effects which may render them difficult to analyse in the short term.
VOC polymer and plastics testing include many volatile compounds, including testing for NIAS, testing on phthalates levels, and odour issues. The customer is subsequently provided a summary of the VOC analyses so that an engineering judgment can be made as to the usability of the material.
Our polymers VOC analysis includes VOC Evaporative Emission Testing, VOC testing for automotive industry, Identification of VOCs, Identification and quantification of residual solvents in packaging materials for food contact or pharmaceutical applications, odour analysis, identification and quantification of VOCs for medical devices and implants and identification of ‘off-gas’ products from pyrolysis of polymers.
Volatile organic compound analysis also includes
• Non-volatile Content
