    ASTM F1913

    Abstract

    This specification covers sheet floor covering having a vinyl wear layer without backing. Products also may contain a clear specialty performance top layers. This type of floor covering is intended for use in commercial and light commercial buildings. The wear layer shall have a vinyl plastic binder and may include pigments, fillers, extenders, and other ingredients. This layer shall be stabilized against heat and light deterioration. The binder content of the PVC-pattern portion of the wear layer such as vinyl resins, plasticizers, and stabilizers shall be a minimum of 50 %.
