ASTM F510

Standard Test Method for Resistance to Abrasion of Resilient Floor Coverings Using an Abrader with a Grit Feed Method

This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the abrasion resistance of resilient flooring using an abrader with a grit feeder.

Resilient Floor Coverings-Tiles of agglomerated composition cork with polyvinyl chloride wear layer-Specification

This European standard specifies the characteristics of agglomerated cork with a wear layer based upon polyvinyl chloride and modification thereof.

EN 660-2

Resilient floor coverings - Determination of wear resistance - Part 2: Frick-Taber Test

This European Standard describes the Frick-Taber method for determining the wear resistance of the wear layer of polyvinyl chloride floor coverings under laboratory conditions.  The test method is applicable to floor coverings with smooth surfaces.  It can be used to determine the wear resistance of surfaces against abrasion and particularly for ranking different wear layer types within one type of product.

EN 14354

Wood-based panels - Wood veneer floor covering (Annex D)

This Annex specifies a test method to determine the resistance to wear of lacquered wood veneer floor covering

.

ISO 24338

Laminate floor coverings - Determination of abrasion resistance

This International Standard specifies two methods (A and B) for measuring abrasion of laminate floor covering elements.  The tests described measure the ability of the surface layer to resist abrasive wear-through.  The resistance to wear according to method B is evaluated by abrading the face of test pieces with a specified abrasive applied by means of two loaded wheels.  The number of revolutions of the test specimen required to cause a defined degree of abrasion is measured by both methods.

IKEA Spec. No. IOS-TM-0002

Surface Resistance-Test Methods (section 9)

Description of a method that measures the ability of a coated surface to resist abrasive wear-through to the underlying substrate by assessing the resistance to liquid paraffin (fat) in the abraded area. The method is used on coated wood, foiled and laminated substrates in applications where high surface resistance is required.

NOTE: Optional accessories may be required to comply with these test standards.
