Standard Test Method for Determining Visible Abrasion Resistance of Glazed Ceramic Tile
|Publication Date:||10 April 1999|
|ICS Code (Terracotta building products):||91.100.25|
1.1 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.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This procedure does not make provisions for the apparent difference in abrasion values between light and dark colored tile.
1.4 This procedure does not optimally evaluate loss of gloss with abrasion.
1.5 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.
