Active Standard ASTM F3008 | Developed by Subcommittee: F06.80
Book of Standards Volume: 15.04
This specification defines the requirements for the compound and physical characteristics of cork floor coverings made from agglomerated composition cork supplied in tile form, to be used with a factory finish or an in situ finish, or both. Cork floor tile covered by this specification shall have a smooth surface and be classified as Class I (Types A and B) and Class II (Types A and B). The standard covers information in the invitation to bid or purchase order, materials and manufacture, physical properties, performance requirements, workmanship, finish and appearance, sampling for testing physical characteristics, inspection, certification, product marking, and packaging and package marking.
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.
1.1 This specification covers requirements for the compound and physical characteristics of cork floor tile. This standard specifies the requirements for cork floor coverings made from agglomerated composition cork supplied in tile form, which are designed to be used with a factory finish or an in situ finish, or both.
1.2 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.
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.
