Printer-friendly version

ASTM International’s resilient floor coverings committee (F06) has approved two new standards that define compositional and performance requirements for heterogeneous polyurethane flooring. The two standards will be used by flooring manufacturers, architectural and design firms, facilities personnel, specifiers, and building owners.

According to ASTM International member Todd Jones, the performance requirements section of the standards (F3403 and F3404) includes resistance to chemicals, heat and light, static load recovery, residual indentation, flexibility, and castor chair testing.

“The standards will validate the differentiated performance characteristics of this entirely new category of floorcovering,” says Jones, Vice President, Windmoeller Inc.
