ASTM D6670:2018

Standard Practice for Full-Scale Chamber Determination of Volatile Organic Emissions from Indoor Materials/Products

This practice is intended for determining volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions from materials and products (building materials, material systems, furniture, consumer products, etc.) and equipment (printers, photocopiers, air cleaners, etc.) under environmental and product usage conditions that are typical of those found in office and residential buildings. This practice is for identifying VOCs emitted and determining their emission rates over a period of time. This practice describes the design, construction, performance evaluation, and use of full-scale chambers for VOC emission testing. While this practice is limited to the measurement of VOC emissions, many of the general principles and procedures may also be useful for the determination of other chemical emissions (for example, ozone, nitrogen dioxide).
Airmid provides environmental test chambers that are built in accordance with the ASTM D6670 standard.

The ability to accurately sample the air in a variety of different manners as befits each of the potential constituents of the Bioaerosols and then quantify them through highly sensitive , sophisticated laboratory techniques is what sets airmid apart.

Situated right beside our laboratories is a suite of climate-controlled testing chambers, the majority being full sized,  which can be adapted to meet almost any testing requirements, this is what allows airmid generate data of the highest standards. It is unique!

Our experience includes impedance and non-impedance based technologies, both free standing and in-duct. From HEPA/ULPA to UV, Ionization to Plasma fields, Photocatalytic to Ozone, either singly or in combination, gases and dry formulations, as well as other bespoke formulations, or large or small spaces, all are tested at Airmid Health Group.

Manufacturers who are seeking to have their products tested against a range of viruses, bacteria, fungal spores, allergens or toxins either in chamber-based studies, real life situations, or in vitro may wish to talk with Airmid health Groups scientists.  We provide:

  • Performance testing of existing products or protypes
  • Data to support marketing claims and product registration
  • Testing of new concepts, IP and designs as part of the product development journey  
  • Testing data beyond that currently required by ISO, ASTM and ASHRAE standards
