The NFSI B101.5-2020 Standard Guide for Uniform Labeling Method for Identifying the Wet Dynamic Coefficient of Friction (Traction) of Floor Coverings, Floor Coatings, and Treatments is now available for purchase.  The purpose of this standard is to offer, at the point of product sale, guidance to users/purchasers on the traction capabilities of the contents of the package through display of labels and markings.

The NFSI is dedicating this standard in memory of Catherine Eugenia “Jean” Biden.  In May 2009, Joe Biden’s mother was hospitalized after fall at her Delaware home where she suffered a fractured hip.  She passed away in January 2010 from complications caused by the fall.
