Odour testing in the automotive sector
Odour testing of the materials used in vehicle interiors is now common, and includes many standardised tests developed by international car manufacturers.
How can we help?
Alongside the popular VDA 270 and VDA 278 tests, and specific manufacturers’ standard checks on individual components (e.g. Nissan NES M 0160, Toyota TSM0505G and BMW GS 97013), Odournet also performs individual conditioning and evaluation procedures.
Our automotive odour testing is thorough and comprehensive. We will evaluate the whole vehicle interior, to determine the overall odour character of the vehicle. Sample preparation takes place in accordance with ISO 12219-1:2012 – Interior air of road vehicles. This test can also be used to find any ‘interfering’ components that may cause an undesirable odour.
