Test Method for Electrostatic Propensity of Carpets
|Publication Date:||1 January 2019|
Purpose and Scope
This test method assesses the propensity of carpets to generate static when a person walks across them. This method uses controlled laboratory simulation of the conditions, that may be encountered in use. The conditions used in this test include those known from experience to be contributors to excessive accumulation of static charges.
This test method does not include standards of performance. The specification requirements pertinent to any given application can vary considerably, depending on the specific demands of the application. It is recommended that specifiers evaluate results with caution as large variations were noted during interand intralab testing using this test method.
