Abstract
Emissions of materials currently used for constructing show cases have been studied by means of thermal extraction. The most abundant compounds in the broad spectrum of identified substances were n-butyl acetate, ethoxypropylacetate, 1-methoxy-2-propylacetate and ethyl-3-ethoxypropionate. These are used as solvents and additives in coating and adhesive formulations. Additionally, ketoximes, cross-linking agents in neutral curing silicones, were conspicuous compounds. Materials, whose emissions cause adverse health effects, were detected and should be used with caution.
