Dekorativne stenske obloge - Zvitki

Ta evropski standard se uporablja za vse stenske obloge v obliki zvitkov, namenjene za obešanje na notranje stene, predelne stene ali strope z lepilom, katerih prvotni namen je dekorativen. Kljub temu pa lahko določene stenske obloge zagotavljajo manjšo absorbcijo zvoka in slabše lastnosti toplotne upornosti.
Podaja tudi vrednotenje skladnosti ter ocenjevanje in preverjanje stalnosti delovanja (AVCP) izdelkov z zahtevami tega standarda.
Ne uporablja se za stenske obloge, katerih prvotni namen je konstrukcijski ali zaščitni (npr. pred paro ali vlago).

If none of the heavy metals and specific elements, listed in Table 2, is actively added in manufacturing

process of the wallcoverings in roll form or found in any of their raw materials and it is not known that it

may occur in any stage of their production process, the performance of migration of the heavy metals and

specific elements from wallcoverings in roll form shall be assessed and expressed, as specified:

NOTE In Annex B, guidance is given on such supplier's declarations or manufacturer's declaration.

b) in 4.3.3, otherwise.
4.3.2 Assessment without testing

Such wallcoverings in roll form are deemed to satisfy the requirements and the performance of migration

of the heavy metals and specific elements from them, as listed in Table 2, may be assessed without the

need for testing (CWT) and expressed as “compliant”.
4.3.3 Assessment based on test results

4.3.3.1 For performance of migration of any of the heavy metals or specific elements from

wallcoverings in roll form, as listed in Table 2, the following values (both in mg/kg), shall be determined:

a) an analytical value, A, obtained in the test performed in accordance with EN 12149:1997, Clause 4

(Test A), and

b) a corrected value, C, calculated according the following Equation, where B is analytical correction

factor from Table 3 for the corresponding heavy metal or specific element:
C = A – (A × B)/100

EXAMPLE Analytical result for lead (A) is 120 and corresponding analytical correction factor in Table 3 (B) 30 %.

Corrected analytical value, C = 120 – (120 × 30)/100 = 120 – 36 = 84 mg/kg ≤ 90 mg/kg.

This is regarded as satisfying the respective maximum migration requirement, specified in Table 2.
