ASTM D6177: Standard Practice for Determining Emission Profiles of Volatile Organic Chemicals Emitted from Bedding Sets
SDO: ASTM: ASTM International
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This practice covers the procedures for estimating emission profiles of volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) from bedding sets when a new bedding set is first brought into a house, based on emissions testing in environmental chambers.
Emission profiles from bedding sets are determined from air concentrations measured in environmental chambers.
VOC emissions from bedding sets, as in the case of other household furnishings, usually are highest when the products are new. Procedures described in this practice also are applicable to used bedding sets.
The practice is applicable to VOCs and not to semivolatile organic chemicals or nonvolatile organic chemicals.
This practice summarizes procedures for sample selection and handling. This practice also refers to pertinent sampling procedures and analytical methods for emission testing, but does not include technical details on selection of appropriate collection media and analytical methods or on sampling and analytical equipment and associated procedures.
Emission profiles based on this practice may be used for estimating human exposures to VOCs.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulating limitations prior to its use.
