    Abstract

    This paper includes three sections. The first, “Crosslinked Floor Finishes (Zinc Metal),” reviews a position paper written by the Polishes and Floor Maintenance Division of CSPA (CSMA). Allowable zinc discharge amounts are regulated by the EPA through local POTW's (sewer districts), and are based on the receiving stream's natural zinc content. The second, “Maintenance Procedures For Flooring Containing Asbestos,” reviews a study done by the Polishes and Floor Maintenance Division of CSPA (CSMA) and the U.S. EPA. Review recommended procedures, resulting from the study, for stripping, buffing and high speed-burnishing asbestos containing floors. The third, “Americans With Disabilities Act, Accessibility Guidelines, Section. A4.5 Ground And Floor Surfaces Appendix B Slip Resistance Requirements,” reviews work done by the Polishes and Floor Maintenance Division of CSPA (CSMA) and the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board.
