|Title = The Influence
of Specific Ventilation Rate on the Emission from Construction Products
|Abstract = Very
little experimental data exist validating the influence of temperature,
ventilation rate, air velocity, humidity and adsorbed pollutants from other
sources on emission rates from construction products. Experiments were
performed using small scale climate chambers including the new CLIMPAQ
quantifying emissions from test specimens of linoleum, acrylic paint, nylon
carpet, and sealant. A trained sensory panel voted on the decipol scale
and chemical analysis identified and quantified the major pollutants after
the specimens had been conditioned in the chambers for six days. When specific
ventilation rate (I/s m²) is low, the rate has a significant influence
on emission rates. In both sensory and chemical terms emission rates increase
when ventilation is increased. For low ventilation rates the emission rates
may be proportional to the specific ventilation rate and for higher ventilation
rates the emission rates stabilize independent of ventilation.
