The promotion of knowledge, the stimulation of research, the development of specifications, test methods, definitions and nomenclature, and practices for resilient floor coverings, including linoleum, vinyl, vinyl composition, asphalt, rubber, cork, and the like, in which the wearing surface is non-textile. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM Committees and other organizations having mutual interest.
Gouge resistance, impact, indentation, resilient floor coverings, scratch
This laboratory test procedure addresses the need to generate reproducible gouges on materials such as resilient flooring by combining an impact and scratch test. By calculating the resulting indentation and groove damage, resistance to gouging can be quantified and compared.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this
