Standard Test Method for Determining Amount of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) Released from Solventborne Automotive Coatings and Available for Removal in a VOC Control Device (Abatement)
ORDER

Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the amount of volatile organic compound (VOC) released from applied solventborne automotive coatings that is available for delivery to a VOC control device. This is accomplished by measuring the weight loss of a freshly coated test panel subjected to solvent evaporation or baking in a laboratory simulation of the production process.

1.2 This test method is applicable to the VOC released from flashoff and baking operations after the paint has been applied.

1.3 This test method is applicable to solventborne automotive coating materials and is intended to represent or simulate the production process. The same general principles apply to waterborne coatings that contain volatile organic compounds (VOC), although specific procedural details are not presented herein to differentiate between VOC and water.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
