BS ISO 19322:2015 pdf download – Resilient floor coverings — Specification for Floor coverings based on thermoplastic polymers
1 Scope
This International Standard specifies the characteristics for resilient floor coverings based upon thermoplastic polymers, supplied either in roll, plank or tile form.
To encourage the consumer to make an informed choice, this International Standard includes a classification system (see ISO 10874) based on intensity of use, which shows where these floor coverings should give satisfactory service. It also specifies requirements for marking.
This specification does not apply to floor coverings specified in the standards ISO 10581, ISO 10582, ISO 10595, ISO 11638, ISO 10575, ISO 10577, IS0 24011, ISO 26986.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms apply
Homogeneous floor covering
floor covering with one or more layers of the same composition and colour, patterned throughout its thickness
heterogenous floor covering
floor covering consisting of a wear layer and other layer(s) which differ in composition and/or design and can contain a reinforcement
factory finish
transparent coating applied during the manufacture. It shall be not thicker than 0.03 mm
Note 1 to entry: This coating should not be counted as part of the wear layer.
product with backing
floor covering consisting of a homogeneous or heterogeneous surface layer and a backing of any material different from the surface layer or a foamed layer
Note 1 to entry: Typical example backing may include materials such as cork, foams, polyester, jute, etc.
permanent surface damage of visible physical nature (furrows)
thermoplastic polymer
polymers whose the thermo-mechanical transformation is reversible and leads to linear arrays (onedimensional chains
the part of a flooring composition consisting of thermoplastic polymeric resins, plasticizers and stablizers
binder content
percentage mass fraction of the binder with respect to the layer in the floor covering containing the binder 4 Requirements
Type text here – use subclauses if required e.g. 4.1 or 4.1.1. For example:
4.1 Identification requirements
4.1.1 Homogeneous floor coverings
Products described in this International Standard shall be identified by binder content by mass as shown in Table 1.BS ISO 19322 pdf download.
