Static Meshes have both Simple Collision (the Physics Bodies that you create in your 3D art package or in the StaticMesh Editor) and Complex Collision (per poly collision) which can be composed of several different materials each with their differing Physical Materials. To set the Complex Collision Physical Material see: Assign a Physical Material to a Material.
