AbstractPublished emission data of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from building materials and furnishings are reviewed. The building materials and furnishings reviewed include coating materials (i.e., wood stain, varnish, wax, and paint), installation materials (i.e., adhesive and caulking), wood products, vinyl coverings, linoleum, and carpets. These emission data are summarized in tables and analyzed systematically. The emission data of the same type materials from different laboratories are compared. The emission characteristics and emission range of individual materials are given.
