Abstract
To reduce the formation of ozone, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates volatile organic compounds (VOC) from a number of facilities and materials. The current EPA regulations require the use of EPA Method 24 to determine the VOC content of coatings and inks. Method 24 indirectly determines the VOC content of a coating by measuring the coatings volatile content using the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) method D 2369, water content by ASTM methods D 3792 or D 4017 and exempt compounds content by ASTM D 4457. EPA developed a method for measuring the VOC content of water-based coatings directly rather than indirectly as in EPA Method 24. In this method, a Perkin-Elmer Model ATD-400 automated tube desorber is used to thermally desorb the volatiles from a weighted sample of coating, and a flame ionizaion detector on a gas chromatograph (GC) is used to estimate the total amount of VOCs in the volatilized material. The purpose of this project was to conduct an interlaboratory study to evaluate the draft water-based coating method. A total of six laboratories participated in the interlaboratory study. Each of the laboratories was required to analyze four different water-based coatings following the procedure described in the draft method.
