Consumer Product/Paint and Coatings Testing

ECA performs EPA Method 24 for the analysis of volatile organic compounds in paints and coatings and printing inks. EPA Method 24 uses ASTM procedures for volatile matter content, water content, density, volume solids, and weight solids of surface coatings and printing inks. We also use CARB Method 310 to analyze for volatile organic compounds in consumer products. CARB Method 310 is primarily used to assess the amount of volatile organic compounds in antiperspirant, deodorants, and aerosol coating products. This test involves the measurement of VOC’s and moisture, with the addition of ammonium ion, propellants, acetone, and alcohols when required. Please contact us with your testing requirements.
