Project Number 1



Summary: The lab conducted performance tests for drying, gloss, impact, small load, abrasion, coefficient of friction (static and kinetic) and rolling loads. One oil based floor coating was used as the benchmark for the water based products.

Test Objective: To evaluate the performance of water based floor coatings and compare them with traditional oil based coatings.

Problems with Current Method: N/A

Purpose of Cleaning: N/A

Product Use: Flooring materials

Cleaning Chemicals: None
