Abstract

The Korean Ministry of the Environment revised a few sections of the regulations in the Law of indoor air quality management for the reinforcement or adjustment of the regulation criteria standard for releasing pollutants from building materials. Especially, in case of sealant, the contents covering liquid building materials, excess standards and testing methods have been added simultaneously in this revision, As a result it is impossible to compare original standards with revised standards directly. For this reason, this study reviewed revised test method of sealant pollutant emission rates in terms of impact and validity in comparison with the original test method. Through this study, the basic properties of revised pollutant emission control standards was assessed. Especially in sealant, since each product has a wide deviation of time required for complete drying, it is proved that there are a large number of products that are not hardened completely in test time. The result of our experiments on the revised test methods showed that this revised test methods yield emission rates that are two and half times less than those of the original testing method. To apply the revised test method of sealant to all the sealant products, It is necessary to extend the test period or improve specimen to fit the test method for quickly drying sealant products.
