AbstractA total of 52 building materials were tested for 124 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in small-scale (50 L) and micro-scale chambers (44 mL) in accordance with ASTM standards. The test materials included 25 dry building materials (vinyl flooring, area rugs, laminated flooring, solid wood flooring, interior panels, structural materials, insulation and acoustical ceiling tile) and 27 wet materials (paint, wood finish/stain, polyurethane coating, adhesive and caulking).
