    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers the comparison of the performance of water-emulsion floor polishes on test floors against a reference material. It is applicable to the following types of polishes:

    1.1.1 Wax emulsion polishes,

    1.1.2 Nonbuffable emulsion polishes,

    1.1.3 Detergent-resistant emulsion polishes, household type, and

    1.1.4 Detergent-resistant emulsion polishes, industrial type.

    1.2 Gloss, leveling, discoloration, traffic marking, slip resistance, and removal ease of these types of floor polishes is rated in comparison to a reference material. Where applicable, detergent resistance is also evaluated. This method is not to be considered as a recommended maintenance procedure.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
