ABSTRACT: Walking on the floor can cause electrostatic charging of personnel. The simple act of lifting the foot from the floor results in the
accumulation of electrostatic charge on personnel, their clothing, and whatever they are carrying. This phenomenon is referred to as
"Triboelectric charging" and can be minimized by treating and controlling the surface properties of the floor with a static dissipative
This document provides the Telcordia view of generic requirements for static dissipative floor finishes and floor finish removal
materials. The document includes electrostatic, mechanical, chemical, and environmental requirements.
