Leininger, A., K. Scott, C. Sarsony, L. Huff, C. Blackley, AND M. Stockton. CATALOG OF MATERIALS AS POTENTIAL SOURCES OF INDOOR AIR EMISSIONS - VOLUME 1. INSULATION, WALLCOVERINGS, RESI- LIENT FLOOR COVERINGS, CARPET, ADHESIVES, SEALANTS AND CAULKS, AND PESTICIDES. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/R-93/108a (NTIS 93-212041), 1993.

Impact/Purpose:

information

Description:

The report discusses and presents data on constituents and emissions from products that have the potential to impact the indoor air environment. t is a tool to be used by researchers to help organize the study of materials as potential sources of indoor air emissions. ncluded are sections on seven product categories: insulation, wallcoverings, resilient floor coverings, carpet, adhesives, sealants and caulks, and pesticides. ach section presents a classification scheme for the product, sales and usage volume data, qualitative data on product composition, and quantitative and qualitative data on emission rates to the indoor air. missions information is presented only for volatile organic compounds (VOCS) because these are the compounds most likely to be emitted from materials found in homes and office buildings. ata tables summarizing available emissions and constituent data are provided, and are organized according to the classification scheme for each product category.
