The report gives details of a small-chamber test method, developed by the EPA for characterizating volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from interior latex and alkyd paints. Current knowledge about VOC, including hazardous air pollutant, emissions from interior paints generated by tests based on this method are presented. Experimental data were analyzed to demonstrate the usefulness of the method and test results in terms of emission characterization, material selection, exposure assessment, and emission reduction by product reformulation. The conclusions drawn from the Experimental results were used to develop a standard practice that is presented (as a draft) in an appendix to the report.
