The drive behind emission testing is to limit the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) released into indoor environments. VOCs include a variety of chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Concentrations of many VOCs are consistently higher indoors (up to ten times higher) than outdoors. Formaldehyde is one of the best known VOCs (constantly making news and under increasing state and federal regulation. It is often associated with glues and resins used in composite/engineered woods and certain finishes associated with a wide variety of construction materials, furniture and interior finishes./nMAS provides both static and dynamic emissions testing services to determine the type and concentrations of chemical compounds potentially off-gassed from finished products and raw materials into the indoor environment. MAS scientists have worked closely with regulators and industry organizations to ensure that consumers indoor air quality concerns are addressed. Helping to meet the growing demand for “green building” products, MAS provides independent testing programs for IAQ validation.
