Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers sheet linoleum floor covering. These floor coverings are intended for use in commercial, light commercial, and residential buildings based on serviceability characteristics. The floor coverings shall be of the following types: Type I; Type II; and Type III. The jute backing shall be firmly bonded to and partially embedded in the linoleum mix. The minimum amount of linoleum cement shall be 30 % when tested. The following test methods shall be performed: overall thickness; static load; resistance to chemicals; resistance to heat; resistance to light; flexibility; static dissipation; and wear surface.

1.1 This specification covers sheet linoleum floor covering.
1.2 Three types of linoleum floor covering are covered (see Section 4). These floor coverings are intended for use in commercial, light commercial, and residential buildings based on serviceability characteristics. General information and performance characteristics, which determine serviceability and recommended use, are included in this specification.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard; the values in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.4 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 11, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
