AATCC TM134-2016, Electrostatic Propensity of Carpets
Developed in 1969 by AATCC Committee RA32; transferred to RA57 in 2007 (revised 2011, editorially revised 2013, revised 2016)
1. Purpose and Scope
1.1 This test method assesses the static-generating propensity of carpets developed when a person walks across them. This method uses controlled laboratory simulation of conditions, that may be encountered in use. The simulation is focused on the use of those conditions, which are known from experience to be strong contributors to excessive accumulation of static charges.
1.2 This test method does not include standards of performance. The specification requirements pertinent to any given application can vary considerably, depending on the specific demands of the application.
