    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers polyolefin composition tile with either smooth or embossed surfaces flooring application for use in commercial, light commercial or residential surfaces flooring application.

    1.2 This specification covers a tile that shall be composed of binder, fillers and pigments. The binder shall consist of one or more resins of polyolefin, polyolefin copolymers or polyolefin ter-polymers (or other suitable), or any desirable combination. Other suitable polymeric resins may be incorporated as part of the binder provided the polyolefin portion of the binder system is greater than 50 %.

    1.3 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.

    1.4 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.5 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.
