Consumer Education: What does VOC mean?

Self-tutoring about consumer education: the tutor looks up the meaning of VOC.

VOC (noun):
Volatile Organic Compound. Such a compound evaporates readily at room temperature. Therefore, if poisonous, it can produce dangerous fumes while opened, during application, and while drying.

Two examples of VOCs in the consumer’s context:

  1. A product might contain a VOC that keeps it fluid to facilitate application.
  2. A VOC may be contained in a thinner or cleaner for organic products.

There are other examples of VOCs as well, some of which I hope to discuss in future posts.
