    Significance and Use

    3.1 Installations of resilient floor tile require tight joints if satisfactory appearance is to result. The quality of cut of resilient tile is determined by this test method.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers a means of measuring and evaluating the quality of cut (joint tightness) of square or rectangular resilient floor tile. Characteristics that detract from a monolithic (seamless) appearance, such as burred, chipped, nicked, or beveled edges, or bow cut or rounded corners, are measured or observed, 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.

    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.
