This document specifies the requirements for cork floor coverings made from agglomerated composition cork, with or without a decorative surface layer, with or without applied colours, supplied in tile form which are designed to be used with a factory finish and/or an in situ finish.
The cork floor decorative surface layer can be made of cork or other bio-based decorative materials, e.g. wood or bamboo veneers, linoleum, leather or natural fibres.
This document includes a classification system based on intensity of use which shows where cork floor tiles with a factory finish can give satisfactory service (see EN ISO 10874). It also specifies requirements for marking, labelling and packing.
