VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOCs)

VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS (VOCs)
About: 


Organic chemicals that easily vaporize at room temperature.

VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects.

(GreenSpec AEP ’09)


VOCs are soluble and hence capable of causing emissions.

Wetter products can thus release more VOCs.

They vary according to their boiling points

VVOC (very volatile organic compounds):

VOC (volatile organic compounds):

SVOC (semi-volatile organic compounds):

TVOC (total volatile organic compounds)

(SEDA Chemical Reduction in Building ’08)


VOC criteria compliant with EN 13419
