    Abstract

    This specification covers floor tiles made of a homogeneous mixture of linoleum cement binder calendered or pressed onto a fibrous or suitable backing 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 document. The floor coverings shall be of the following types: Type Ilinoleum floor tile with fibrous backing; Type IIlinoleum floor tile with special backing; Type IIIlinoleum floor tile without backing; and Type IVstatic dissipative linoleum floor tile with or without backing. Materials shall be tested and the individual grades shall conform to specified values of physical properties such as wear surface, size, thickness, and squareness; performance requirements such as residual indentation, static load resistance, flexibility, dimensional stability, resistance to chemicals, resistance to heat, resistance to light, and static dissipation.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers floor tiles made of a homogeneous mixture of linoleum cement binder calendered or pressed onto a fibrous or suitable backing. This specification also covers linoleum floor tile without backing.

    1.2 Four types of linoleum floor tile are covered. The floor covering is 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 document.

    1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Sections 7 and 8, of this specification.

    1.4 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 requirements prior to use.

    1.5 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
