    This new ASTM publication gives you the latest information on ALL ASPECTS of floor polish in easy-to-understand terms.

    Ten peer-reviewed papers cover:

    A thorough review of the chemistry involved in floor polishes and associated coatings.

    Coating maintenance and static coefficient of friction (COF) includes papers that clearly define COF and how it is measured correctly in accordance with ASTM standards. There is also a general review of polish maintenance techniques and a critical paper encompassing the relationship between the static COF of newly applied floor polish and that same finish, which has been subjected to various industry standard maintenance techniques over time.

    Legal and regulatory issues discusses the legal aspects associated with a slip incidence, as well as the tools to prevent slip incidents. It also includes an actual case history, which provides a meticulous investigative outline for those involved in the discovery phase of a slip claim; and closes with a review of those regulatory issues that currently effect floor polishes.

    STP 1448 will help facilities better manage their floor care program, saving them time and money, while improving the overall appearance and safety. It has a broad base of appeal from the formulation chemist developing polishes to the facilities manager who is looking to better manage their floor care program.
