Bad vehicle interior air quality caused by VOC emission could damage personal health


VOC emission from interior parts or components in vehicle cabin sometimes can make people feel dizzy and nauseous, and these VOC substances may further damage personal health in the long-term. Today, more than safety and physical appearance, people gradually care about comfort and odor in the vehicle cabin. Therefore, interior air quality in vehicle cabin is getting more attention in many countries, and most of the car manufacturers have included this issue into their production standards to ask suppliers to conform to.


Furthermore, some countries bring this issue into national regulation. For example, China has established related standard, test method, and inspection rule in GB 18352.6-2016 to improve vehicle interior air quality in light motor vehicles sold in China market. The authority inspects the VOC emission randomly, makes grade to the result, and the grade will be published on the website for the consumers to search. VOC substances, Formaldehyde, Acetaldehyde, Acrolein, Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, Xylene, Styrene, are especially concerned. And interior materials like plastic, foam, leather, adhesive, film, etc. are highly potential to emit VOC substances under the circumstances of high temperature in the vehicle. Considering the influences of climate change, in-car temperature could be rising rapidly, thus, how to apply low VOC emission materials to the design in development phase becomes a crucial issue to control the vehicle interior air quality.
