This European Standard specifies the methods of test for determination of the properties of high-pressure decorative laminates as defined in Clause 3. These methods are primarily intended for testing the sheets specified in EN 438-3, EN 438-4, EN 438-5, EN 438-6, EN 438-8, and EN 438-9.
The precision of the test methods, specified in this European Standard, is not known because inter-laboratory data are not yet available. When inter-laboratory data will be obtained, precision statements will be added to the test method at the following revision. For those test methods having an end point determination based on subjective judgement, it is not meaningful to make a statement of precision.

This document specifies the requirements related to dimensional, mechanical, optical and thermal characteristics of thermoplastic films for mulching applications in agriculture and horticulture.
These mulch films are intended to be removed after use and not incorporated in the soil.
These mulch films are not intended to be used for soil disinfection by fumigation. Films for this application are in the scope of prEN 17098-1[1].
It specifies a classification for durability of mulching films and the test methods referred to in this document.
This document is applicable to thermoplastic mulch films, used for agriculture and horticulture in Europe, based on polyethylene and/or ethylene copolymers, of the following types:
-   transparent films;
-   black films;
-   reflective films (e.g. white films, black/white films and black/silver films);
-   films of other colour(s) for weed control (e.g. green, brown).
This document also defines installation, use and removal conditions of mulch films.
NOTE   Mulch films are considered as highly contaminated by soil and vegetal residues: the observed rates (or levels) of contamination of mulch films can vary from 70 % to 90 %. Therefore the film thickness is a key factor on the rate of contamination, the thinnest films (e.g. less than 25 µm) will be the mostly contaminated, difficult, expensive to remove, recover and recycle.

ISO 19712-1:2008 also specifies property requirements for the various types of solid surfacing materials covered by this classification. Requirements are specified for the types that are most generally used, but additional types may be added as required. The specified limit values apply to the most commonly used types of material, but within each classification it may be possible to obtain variants having much higher performance values.
These materials are characterized by their homogeneous appearance, renewable surfaces and inconspicuous seams. They are generally classified as solid surface sheets (designed for horizontal, vertical, wet and dry applications) and solid surface shapes (including, but not limited to, kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, vanity tops, showers, tubs and spas).
The important properties of solid surfacing materials are water resistance, thermal shock resistance, heat resistance, impact resistance, stain and chemical resistance, cigarette burn resistance, colour stability, hardness, bacterial and fungal resistance, cleanability, hygiene, seamability and renewability.

ISO 75-3:2004 specifies a method for the determination of the temperature of deflection under load of high-strength thermosetting laminates and compression-moulded long-fibre-reinforced plastics in which the fibre length is greater than 7,5 mm. The flexural stress used is not fixed, as in ISO 75-2, but is a fraction (1/1000) of the initial (room-temperature) flexural modulus of the material under test. This allows the method to be applied to materials with a wide range of flexural moduli.

This International Standard specifies a procedure for determining the in-plane shear stress-shear strain, shear modulus and shear strength of fibre-reinforced plastic composites by the +/- 45° tension test method. The method is suitable f for use with the following materials: - thermoset and thermoplastic matrix laminates made from unidirectional layers and/or fabrics including unidirectional fabrics, with the fibres oriented at +/- 45° to the specimen axis. the lay-up shall be symmetrical and balanced about the specimen mid-plane.

This document specifies characteristics for compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels both for non-structural uses in interior or external wall and ceiling finish applications (including in suspended ceiling).
This document deals with compact laminate panels of thickness 2 mm and greater.
The compact laminate panels are produced by using a high pressure process and the HPL composite panels are produced bonding an HPL sheet to a substrate.
This document covers compact laminate panels with the following types of laminates:
-   compact laminates, as defined in EN 438 4:2016;
-   exterior-grade compact laminates, as defined in EN 438 6:2016;
-   pearlescent compact laminates, metal compact laminates and wood veneer compact laminates, as defined in EN 438 8:2018;
-   coloured core layer compact laminates and metal reinforced core layer compact laminates, as defined in EN 438 9:2017.
This document covers full size and cut-to-size compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels, e.g. tiles and sidings.
This document specifies only compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels mechanically fixed using e. g. screws or rivets.
Both the compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels may contain flame retardant to improve their reaction to fire performance.
This document also specifies provisions for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of the characteristics and includes provisions for marking these panels.
This document does not cover:
a)   HPL sheets less than 2 mm thick as defined in EN 438-3:2016, EN 438-8:2018 or EN 438-9:2017, which are not glued on a substrate;
b)   overlaid or veneered wood-based panels, where the overlay/veneer is not an HPL;
c)   HPL composite panels intended for use as floor coverings;
d)   panels used for fire protection of walls or ceilings;
e)   performances of installed systems for walls and ceilings with compact or composite high pressure laminate panels.

This part of this European Standard specifies requirements for compact laminate produced by using an high pressure process and HPL composite panels for interior and/or external wall and ceiling finishes (non-structural) including suspended ceilings.
It covers full size and cut-to-size panels.
The compact laminate panels and HPL composite panels allow to be mechanically fixed using e. g. screws or rivets.
This part of this European Standard also specifies test methods, provisions for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of these products and includes requirements for marking.
This part of this European Standard does not cover:
a)   HPLs less than 2 mm thick as defined in EN 438 part 3, part 8 and part 9 not glued on a substrate and placed on the market as a separate product;
b)   overlaid or veneered wood-based panels, where the overlay/veneer is not an HPL;
c)   HPL composite panels intended for use as floor coverings;
d)   panels used for fire protection of walls or ceilings.

This European Standard specifies the methods of test for determination of the properties of high-pressure
decorative laminates as defined in Clause 3. These methods are primarily intended for testing the sheets
specified in EN 438-3, EN 438-4, EN 438-5, EN 438-6, EN 438-8, and EN 438-9.
The precision of the test methods, specified in this European Standard, is not known because interlaboratory
data are not yet available. When inter-laboratory data will be obtained, precision statements
will be added to the test method at the following revision. For those test methods having an end point
determination based on subjective judgement, it is not meaningful to make a statement of precision.
