AATCC TM134-2019, Test Method for Electrostatic Propensity of Carpets
Developed in 1969 by AATCC Committee RR32; jurisdiction transferred in 2007 to AATCC Committee RA57; revised 1975, 1979, 1991, 2001, 2011,2016, 2019; reaffirmed 1986, 1996, reaffirmed and editorially revised 2006; editorially revised 2007, 2008, 2013. Related to ISO 6356.)
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. It is recommended that specifiers evaluate results with caution as large variations were noted during inter-and intralab testing using this test method.
