Abstract The paper discusses experiments, conducted at EPA's Indoor Air Quality Research House, to measure airborne concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and particles during and following the spray-application of latex wall paint. (NOTE: Paint may be applied indoors by a variety of methods including brushing, rolling, and spraying. The spray-application of paint may result in exposure to both VOCs and aerosols.) Latex paint was applied to all four walls of a closed 30-cubic-meter bedroom by a professional painter using a commercial electric airless sprayer. VOCs were collected on Tenax (trademark) and XAD (trademark) - 7 sorbents and analyzed by gas chromatography. Total suspended particles and particles with diameters < 10 micrometers (PM10) and < 2.5 micrometers (PM2.5) were collected on filters and measured gravimerically. Particle concentrations and size distributions were measured with Aerosizer Particle Monitor.
