intumescente

The very complex issue of the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the environment is also the subject of research and development regarding intumescent paints.

In fact, intumescent paints and varnishes are generally applied in much thicker layers compared to traditional decorative paints. The contained and released quantity of VOC can therefore be much higher.

Not to underestimate the fact that the intumescent film applied to the support releases VOC over time. The point of attention considering VOC emission is focused on the health of the internal environment and its future occupants.

Emission tests are carried out with special equipment in a closed test chamber. The presence of solvents that are potentially released by the product – which is applied in the average thicknesses used on site – are detected via instrumental analysis.

We can distinguish two different types of tests concerning the VOCs:

  • VOC Content – Verification and certification of the volatile organic substances contained in the product
  • VOC Emission – Verification and certification of the amount of VOCs released into the environment by the protective system applied and hardened after 28 days

This is the reason why Amonn has decided to test its intumescent products according to the Indoor Air Comfort (Gold).

What exactly is this all about? Eurofins “Indoor Air Comfort” (IAC) product certification is a tool to show compliance of a product with low VOC emissions criteria set out in Europe on two levels

  • The Standard level “Indoor Air Comfort – certified product” shows compliance of product emissions with the criteria of all legal specifications issued by authorities in the European Union and its Member States.
  • The higher level of “Indoor Air Comfort GOLD – Certified Product” shows further compliance of the product’s emissions with the criteria of many of the voluntary specifications issued by the most relevant eco-labels and similar specifications in the EU and requirements for the certifications of sustainable building. Hence certified products are those with the best-in-class low emissions, therefore good for indoor air quality.

The Amonn products compliant with the above legislation and in possession of the VOC EMISSION TEST REPORT– Indoor Air Confort GOLD® are:
