    Waterborne coatings use water as a solvent to disperse the resin used to make the coating or paint. Waterborne coatings release volatile organic compounds (VOC) when applied. ASTM D6266 measures the amount of VOC a coating releases. VOCs are bad for our health and our environment. VOC control devices are used to treat VOC pollutants. This test indicates the amount of VOC that will be delivered to the control device for treatment. The data obtained from this test is used in the designing, manufacturing, and quality control of VOC control devices. The total amount of VOC removed by the VOC control device is a function of the amount available as given by this test method combined with the VOC removal efficiency of the control device.

    Test Procedure:

    ASTM D6266-00 measures the loss of VOC from a freshly coated surface by:

    1.  determining the difference in weight of a coated test panel before and after various steps in a process, 
    2. analyzing a sample of the applied coating for VOC or water content, or both, by gas chromatography (GC), 
    3. calculating the VOC directly or after subtracting the water content.


    The weight of VOC available for abatement is reported.
