VOC Analysis per EPA Method 24
EAG Laboratories has over 25 years of experience providing VOC testing per EPA method 24. VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are emitted as gases from industrial and consumer coatings products. Both industry and government standards strive to reduce environmental and human exposure to these harmful compounds.
Our VOC analysis lab can quantify the levels of your product to comply with government and industry standards for paints, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. Some clients submit finished products for evaluation, while others submit raw materials or additives to be used for future products. Customers may also be seeking independent verification for marketing claims of a low VOC paint or coating product.
We have analyzed hundreds of samples for VOCs. Our scientific staff is experienced in analyzing water based samples, solvent based samples and exempt solvent samples. We understand that different samples require different approaches and we never make assumptions about results. We go beyond simply reporting VOC analysis data, by verifying the results to ensure our clients are receiving reliable answers.
