1 Scope
This document specifies the characteristics of plain and decorative linoleum on a corkment backing as a compound floor covering, supplied in roll form.
To encourage the consumer to make an informed choice, this standard includes a classification system based on intensity of use, which shows where resilient floor coverings should give satisfactory service (see EN ISO 10874). 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 document.
