    This specification covers the performance, quality, packaging, and marking requirements for flexible wall coverings as a finished product. Also included here are wall preparation and covering installation procedures. The manufacturers shall be responsible for thorough testing and inspection under representative field conditions prior to introduction of new finished products on the market.

    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 the performance, quality, packaging, and marking characteristics of flexible wall coverings as finished products.

    1.1.1 Whenever this specification refers to wall coverings, it is intended also to refer to ceiling coverings of the same type.

    1.1.2 This specification does not apply to wall coverings intended to be applied to exterior walls.

    1.1.3 This specification does not apply to rigid panel products, irrespective of whether or not they include a flexible lining or veneer.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems has the potential to result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.3 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.
