4.1 Intended conditions of use and emission scenario
4.1.1 Product description
The glass that represent in general the main part of the glass product does not contain any VOC. Glass is manufactured in furnaces where the raw materials are melted at a temperature above 1 500 °C and therefore no organic compounds whatsoever are present within the glass itself. VOC in glass products are generally found in added components such as paint, plastic film, sealant, glue, etc. Moreover the organic containing component is rarely exposed directly to the indoor air but most likely placed against a hard surface (e.g. wall, ceiling, floor, frame, etc.).
4.1.2 Mirrors, painted glass, and adhesive backed polymeric filmed glass
Mirrors (EN 1036-1), painted glass (EN 16477-1), adhesive backed polymeric filmed glass (EN 15755-1):
the component that is susceptible to release VOC’s is applied on the back of the product on the entire surface; it consists of paint and/or adhesive polymeric film (see Figure 1). During use, the face covered is generally applied on to a hard surface such as a wall. Those products are used inside the building as decorative wall covering; they rarely cover all four walls of a room but more generally two walls or less.BS-EN-17416-2021
