Dynamic Coefficient of Friction Testing

The Standard for Coefficient of Friction in the U.S. Tile Industry has Changed! DCOF AcuTestSM: The New and Improved Method for Coefficient of Friction.

Metropolitan Ceramics has had testing done for DCOF and the results are available on our website www.metroceramics.com .

According to the Tile Council of North America, many manufacturers will begin reporting only DCOF numbers as early as the beginning of 2014. Metropolitan Ceramics is among those who will follow this recommendation.

The DCOF test is significantly different from the static coefficient of friction (SCOF) test and the numbers from each test do not correlate.
