BS EN 688:2011

Resilient floor coverings. Specification for corklinoleum

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : May 2011



This European Standard specifies the characteristics of corklinoleum, supplied in roll form. To encourage the consumer to make an informed choice, the standard includes a classification system based on intensity of use, which shows where resilient floor coverings should give satisfactory service (see EN 685). 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 excluded from this standard.
