ASTM D 5087-2021 “Determination of the Amount of Volatile Organic Foods (VOC) Emitted from Solvent-based Automotive Coatings and the amount Removed (Reduced) in voc Control Devices”

Meaning and use
4.1 This test method provides basic engineering data that can be used to determine the amount of VOC that can be delivered at the entrance of VOC control equipment (especially for the automotive industry). 6 Generally, this procedure can be used to determine the amount of VOC produced from the coating in the oven and incinerated, although the same procedure can be followed for other forms of VOC emission reduction (i.e., carbon, adsorption, etc.).

4.2 If all key factors (e.g., temperature, cleanliness, vibration, accessibility, etc.) can be adequately controlled, the test method may be suitable for direct use in the production environment.

4.3 The total amount of VOC removed from the process by the VOC control device is a function of the available amount given by the test method and the VOC removal efficiency of the control device.

1.1 This test method includes determining the amount of volatile organic compounds (VOC) released from the applied solvent-based automotive paint that can be used for delivery to VOC control equipment. This is achieved by measuring the weight loss of newly coated test plates subjected to solvent evaporation or baking in laboratory simulations of the production process.

1.2 This test method is applicable to VOC released by flash steaming and baking after painting.

1.3 This test method is applicable to solvent-based automotive paint materials and is intended to represent or simulate the production process. The same general principles apply to water-based paints containing volatile organic compounds (VOC), although this article does not provide specific procedure details to distinguish VOC from water.

1.4 This standard is not intended to address all, if any, safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of users of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health and environmental practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory restrictions prior to use.

1.5 This international standard is based on the internationally recognized standardization principles established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guidelines and Recommendations issued by the WTO Committee on Technical Barriers to Trade.
