GLOSSARY: Static-control Floor Finish

Waxing

A non-permanent conductive or static-dissipative coating periodically applied to existing floor surfaces. Floor finishes ground personnel, equipment, or other objects touching the floor finish and dissipate charges to ground. Some finishes control the generation and accumulation of static charges associated with certain charge-generating flooring materials.

Because finishes wear off over time, without constant electrical testing there is no way to know when they’ve lost conductivity. For this reason, they do not provide reliable static protection.
