VOC detection
VOC is affecting one of the main air quality inside the vehicle. VOC including alkanes, alkenes, aromatics, aldehydes or ketones and other substances, has a special smell irritating, and some have been classified as carcinogens. Suntech test can provide you with professional VOC automotive environmental testing services.

About VOC
Automotive interior parts of the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds, referred to as "VOC") is affecting one of the main air quality inside the vehicle. VOC including alkanes, alkenes, aromatics, aldehydes or ketones and other substances, has a special smell irritating, and some have been classified as carcinogens, such as vinyl chloride, benzene, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, are also part of VOC to the ozone layer damaging effects, such as chlorofluorocarbons and hydrochlorofluorocarbons.
VOC concentration is too high, can easily lead to acute poisoning, the light will be headache, dizziness, cough, nausea, vomiting; severe liver toxicity will appear, and even coma soon, and some may be life-threatening. VOC impact on children's health: The foreign medical studies have shown that living in the VOC environmental impact of the pregnant women, resulting in the probability of fetal malformation is much higher than normal, and there may be future intellectual development of children affected.

National status
Government agencies around the world are now developing a variety of separate policy to limit vehicle's air quality. In Europe and the United States, all car manufacturers are based on their customers to determine their own testing methods, it varies between companies. However, these car manufacturers to reduce volatile organic compounds in control and has been a consensus.
Other countries and organizations are also active in research and development related to the detection of VOC detection methods and standards. Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association is developing a "car VOC detection" and "reduce the car's own initiative VOC"; 2007, China introduced the industry standard HJ / T 400-2003, provides China's vehicle VOC and aldehydes and ketones Determination of sample material; ISO International Standards Committee Association for the Determination of vehicle pollutants also completed the first draft is currently being widely consulted; South Korea in late 2007 with the development of China's State Environmental Protection Administration of vehicle air pollutants like measurement method. With the introduction of these standards, OEMs will have to control air quality inside the vehicle.
