Standard Test Method for Embossed Depth of Resilient Floor Coverings
|Publication Date:||10 March 2001|
|ICS Code (Floor coverings):||97.150|
1.1 Two important characteristics involved in the manufacture of resilient flooring relate to the smoothness of the wear surface and the hardness of the layers under the wear surface. The surfaces may vary from completely textured areas to portions that are flat but separated by textured areas. This test method covers flooring with these interrupted wear surfaces which are not supported by soft, cushioned layers.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
