What are VOCs?
VOCs are organic chemicals which evaporate or vaporize readily under normal atmospheric conditions and are harmful to human health. They typically have a low boiling point which causes large numbers of molecules to evaporate and enter the surrounding air. One example is formaldehyde, which has a boiling point of –2°F and will steadily evaporate unless it is kept in a closed container.
