CoF = Coefficient of Friction

DIN = the equivalent to British Standards in the UK and stands for 'Deutsches Institut für Normung' or German Institute of Standardisation.

HSE = Health & Safety Executive

HSL = Health & safety Laboratories

Microns = 1 millionth of 1 metre (1 human scalp hair is approximately 100 microns)
