The paper discusses a series of tests, designed to evaluate the performance of the Field and Laboratory Emission Cell (FLEC) as applied to the testing of emissions for two indoor coating materials (floor wax and latex paint). The tests included validation of the repeatability of the test method, evaluation of the effect of different air velocities on source emissions, and a comparison of FLEC versus small chamber characterization of emissions. The FLEC exhibited good repeatability in characterizing emissions when applied to both sources under identical conditions. Tests with different air velocities showed significant effects on the emissions from latex paint, yet little effect on emissions from floor wax.
