This paper describes the olfactometric assessment of volatile organic compounds emitted by coating films.
It describes the measurements of concentration, intensity, hedonic tone and character of odor caused by emissions of volatile organic compounds. VOCs’ emitted in to the small-space chamber with capacity of 1 m3 were tested by dynamic olfactometric method. Paper also contains a comparison of olfactometric air pollution of two different types of coating films. The work is aimed to determine the relationships and dependencies between the measured values of volatile organic compounds obtained by the gas chromatography and reported sensation.
