This document specifies a test method to determine the top layer delamination of multilayer parquet elements according to EN 13489 with different structures, dimensions and adhesives for internal use as flooring, at the time of the first delivery of the product.
The document specifies 2 pre-treatments (PT1 and PT2) of the test specimens.
The test methods described in this document allow to determine the minimum top layer bonding quality, also for the use application on floor heating, and for the identification of bonding failure.
NOTE 1   For this application, the pre-treatments have proven to be suitable.
This document does not apply to the bonding quality of plywood if it is in use in the multilayer parquet construction.
NOTE 2   This standard doesn’t allow to estimate the compatibility of use in wet conditions.

This document specifies characteristics for adhesives for floor coverings, which comprise:
— resilient floor coverings (such as those manufactured from plastics, linoleum or rubber);
— textile floor coverings.
Adhesives for floor coverings are intended for use within a building according to the manufacturer's specification.
This document specifies requirements for establishing performance characteristics of adhesives for floor coverings with regard to their determination, evaluation and expression.
This document comprises all kinds of adhesives for floor coverings irrespective of the chemical composition and the mechanism of setting. Products according to this document can be put on the market as liquids, pastes and film adhesives for floor coverings. The products can be one-component or multi-component.
This document also defines a special kind of adhesives for floor coverings, which facilitate the easy removal of the floor covering after the utilization and where the need for a permanent bond is not always required. These types of floor covering adhesives are referred to as low peel strength, release bond adhesives.
This document does not:
— cover adhesives for bonding parquet to the subfloor, adhesives for bonding laminate floor coverings and adhesives for ceramic tiles;
— make provisions for testing the bond strength of low peel strength, release bond adhesives for floor coverings;
— take account of all influences which may occur in practice.

This document provides recommendations for the installation and use of textile floor coverings on stairs for both residential/domestic and contract/commercial purposes. It covers all products composed of textile material with a pile or non-pile use surface including the use of such products in tile form. This document is applicable only to carpets that are intended to be installed without the use of protective stair nosings. For carpets that are intended to be installed using protective stair nosings, the overall use class determines the stair suitability. NOTE 1 The use of stair nosings/edgings in public areas is often the subject of local bye-laws and legislations. NOTE 2 In many split-level dwellings, a room can have one or two steps between different levels. This situation differs from a stairway in several important respects: — the steps are usually wider and therefore traffic intensity in any one place is usually lower; — the carpet can be bent over steps in either the machine direction or the across-machine direction. On a stairway, it is normal practice to lay the carpet with the pile lying down the stairs.
