Abstract:

This report presents the findings of a study performed to assess certain physical properties of four types of conductive flooring-conductive terrazzo, conductive vinyl, conductive rubber, and monolithic trowel-on. The study provides comparative data on which specifications for flooring in explosive manufacturing, loading, and handling facilities can be based. No attempt was made to judge whether any particular material met any existing criteria. The results show a wide range of properties with respect to resistance to chemical attack, spark resistance, and electrical resistivity. Author
