Resilient Floor Covering Standards
ASTM's resilient floor covering standards are instrumental in specifying and testing the physical and mechanical properties, as well as in providing the installation procedures for resilient flooring, which includes linoleum, vinyl composition tile, and sheet vinyl among others. These standards help to determine the abrasion, puncture, and impact resistance, flexibility, electrical resistance, thickness, and heat and light stability. These resilient floor covering standards also allow product manufacturers, construction companies, and all other producers and users of resilient flooring materials to test floor coverings to ensure strength and quality towards safe utilization.
