They do absorb the VOCs, and what you propose will work….for a short time. The carbon will loose it’s effectiveness, most likely in a short time. What you plan might be an expensive solution…..but it will work. If you want to prove this (that it works) for your self, it’s easy. Put the activated carbon filters on your respirator, and then step into an area where you’ve been spraying a finish with VOCs. You won’t smell anything; that is, until the filters are used up.
