VOC emission testing of automotive interior parts

Emissions and odor behavior of components.

With new user interfaces, innovative materials, and corresponding customization options, the importance of material quality and processing in the vehicle interior is increasing. DEKRA assists you with examinations of vehicle interior components for emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as condensable substances (FOG) that affect indoor air quality, health, and driving comfort.

Safe protection through emission testing

In the DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited DEKRA laboratory, our experts use test chamber and odor measurements as well as pollutant analyses to investigate and evaluate the odor and outgassing behavior of automotive interior parts under various environmental influences. For this purpose, we offer emission measurements and analysis procedures in accordance with all relevant limit values and standards, such as VDA 270, VDA 276, VDA 277, VDA 278 and DIN ISO 12219.
