TECHNICAL INFORMATION

COF: Dynamic Wet .50-.60 ?

What is COF?

Coefficient of friction (COF) is the measurement of a tile's frictional resistance, closely related to traction and slipperiness. Both static and dynamic measurements can be taken. Static coefficient of friction (SCOF) is the frictional resistance one pushes against when starting in motion. Dynamic coefficient of friction (DCOF) is the frictional resistance one pushes against when already in motion. For SCOF and DCOF, a slip occurs when pushing off with more force than the surface can resist. That can happen when the angle of the force changes (e.g., pushing off harder while pressing down less) or when the floor surface becomes more slippery than anticipated.

While many tile products still show a "COF" value, many manufacturers have stopped reporting coefficient of friction per the ASTM C1028 method because the standard for tile floors has changed. There is now a >0.42 requirement, measured per the DCOF AcuTest℠, for level interior tiles that will be walked on when wet.

While the colors present on a single piece of tile will be indicative on the colors to be expected on the other tiles, the amount of colors on each piece may vary significantly.”

Environmental Rating: Standard

The concept of sustainability and "green" building practices has caused significant changes within the commercial and residential construction industry over the past decade. Building green is more than just an environmental buzzword though. In the end, the consumer also benefits from sustainability through less frequent maintenance needs and greater energy efficiency, resulting in lower costs over the life of a building, as well as a healthier indoor environment. When it comes to energy efficiency, durability and other green qualities, ceramic tile is unrivaled as an environmentally-friendly flooring material.

The Advantages of Tile
  • Tile is not an original source of contaminants.
  • Tile does not compromise IAQ during initial installation.
  • Tile will not act as a "sink" to absorb VOCs or other chemicals from surrounding materials. After tile is installed, it forms a completely inert flooring system.
  • Tile will not support bacterial or fungal growth, nor will it absorb or release other contaminants.
  • Tile offers ease of maintenance with simple, water-based cleaning materials.
  • Tile does not require solvent-based cleaners or sealers. Simple, water-based products keep tile well maintained and also protects our environment. Thus, tile offers significant advantages for indoor air quality during installation and for the lifetime of the tile’s use in the building.
