Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are organic chemicals that are present everywhere, including human-made and natural materials. The inherent low vapor pressure characteristic of these chemicals at room temperature causes a large number of these compounds to evaporate or sublimate into the surrounding air. Exposure to some of these chemicals has been linked to a variety of health issues and as a result their presence is restricted.

Detection of these compounds at extremely low concentrations is needed to assure material safety and requires specialized analytical instruments and test procedures. Our Engaged Experts at Element analyze VOCs using state-of-the-art instrumentation such as thermal desorption gas chromatography / mass spectroscopy (TD-GC/MS) and High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to provide our customers accurate and positive identification and quantification. Our low detection limits will assure that your product will be compliant in the industries and markets you serve. Element is accredited for testing of VOCs and SVOCs.

With the use of several large environmental chambers and a micro-chamber, Element is capable of testing and analyzing VOC emissions for automotive, building, office products and furniture.

In addition to volatile organic compound testing, Element has extensive chemical and mechanic testing capabilities, making us willing and able to support your testing needs.
