Resilient floor coverings - Specification for plain and decorative linoleum
|Publication Date:||1 March 2011|
|ICS Code (Floor coverings):||97.150|
This European Standard specifies the characteristics of plain and decorative linoleum, supplied as either tiles or rolls.
To encourage the consumer to make an informed choice, the standard includes a classification system based on intensity of use, which shows where resilient floor coverings should give satisfactory service (see EN 685). It also includes requirements for marking.
The term 'linoleum' is frequently incorrectly applied to a range of floor coverings, often to those based on polyvinyl chloride or rubber. Such materials are not included in this standard.
