Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) are chemicals that easily evaporate under normal conditions, and are highly regulated in everything from cars to furniture. We perform VOC testing to ensure that your products are compliant to all applicable health and safety standards.  

Because exposure to some of these chemicals has been linked to a variety of health issues, our VOC testing services ensure that products and materials comply with safety guidelines and legislation restricting the use of substances. We use a variety of test methods to evaluate a range of material types, and can assist with virtually any VOC testing project.

Performing VOC Testing

Because regulations require VOCs and SVOCs to be tested at extremely low concentrations, we use highly sensitive equipment to ensure that results are reported accurately and completely, even at low detection levels. 

Some of the methods we use include:

  • Thermal Desorption Gas chromatography / Mass spectroscopy (TD-GC/MS)
  • Headspace GC/MS
  • High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) 

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