Interior Finishes. Floors, Walls, Ceilings: Performance Criteria. Interim Report.
State Univ. Construction Fund, Albany, NY.; State Univ. of New York, Albany.
A research program and the testing methods it developed are described, indicating the performance criteria of interior finishes for walls, ceilings and floors. Material exposure criteria are given with the probability of damage ratings for--(1) physical impact, (2) chemical damage, (3) biological, food and water damage. The relationship of interior space function and exposure classifications to material finishes is disclosed for material handling, storage, utility, heavy equipment, and physical activity for instructional and commonly used facilities. Testing methods, procedures, and standards used in the research program are described in this interim report. Resistance of finishes to wear, slippage, washability and fading are revealed. Seminar participants are listed. A performance rating chart is enclosed. (TG)
