The practice is intended for determining volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from materials and products (building materials, material systems, furniture, consumer products, etc.) and equipment (printers, photocopiers, air cleaners, etc.) under environmental and product-usage conditions typical of those in office and residential buildings. It is for identifying VOCs emitted and determining their emission rates. It describes the design, construction, performance evaluation, and use of full-scale chambers for VOC emission testing. While limited to measuring VOC emissions, many of its general principles and procedures (e.g., methods for evaluating the general performance of the chamber system) may also be useful for determining other chemical emissions (e.g., ozone, nitrogen dioxide). Materials or products are placed in a full-scale test chamber within which temperature, relative humidity, and air change are controlled.
