Standard Test Method for Determining Visible Abrasion Resistance of Glazed Ceramic Tile
|Publication Date:||15 December 2009|
|ICS Code (Terracotta building products):||91.100.25|
This test method is designed to measure the resistance of tile surfaces to visible surface abrasion. Certain irregular surfaces may not be evaluated properly by this test method because of wear patterns.
This procedure does not make provisions for the apparent difference in abrasion values between light and dark colored tile.
This procedure does not optimally evaluate loss of gloss with abrasion.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
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.
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.
