    Significance and Use

    3.1 This test method is used to determine the effect of plasticizers in tile on the floor polish itself. If the floor polish is softened by the plasticizers in the tile it will become an adhesive and adhere to the metal glide that is placed on the polish under standard weights at standard temperatures. Various degrees of attack on the polish are evaluated by the damage to the tile underneath the polish.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method2 covers a laboratory procedure for determining damage resulting from metal glide adhesion on floor surfaces.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the 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. Specific precautions are given in 8.2.

    1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
