This study aims to characterize, from a numerical modelling, the sorption behaviour of a material (a plasticised flooring material) when it is exposed to a pollutant commonly encountered in indoor environments (formaldehyde). It deals with the influence of the pollutant concentration in the room air on the sink effect of the material. The numerical simulations are based on a macroscopic modelling using experimental test results obtained elsewhere. The consequences on the room inertia are also discussed, and analogies between mass transfer and heat transfer are highlighted.
