This practice covers the procedure for determining the acceptability of concrete floors for the installation of resilient flooring. It also includes suggestions for ensuring that the constructed concrete floor is acceptable for such installations but does not cover tests for adequacy of the concrete floor to perform structural requirements. A permanent, effective moisture vapor retarder, of the specified thickness and permeance, is required under all on- or below-grade concrete floors. Concrete floors for resilient floorings should be permanently dry, clean, smooth, structurally sound, and free of substances that may prevent adhesive bonding. Surface cracks, grooves, depression, control joints or other non-moving joints, and other irregularities should be filled or smoothed with latex patching or a recommended underlayment compound. The surface of the floor should be cleaned by scraping, brushing, vacuuming, or any other method. All concrete slabs should be tested for moisture regardless of age or grade level while all concrete floors should be tested for pH before installing resilient flooring.

Scope

1.1 This practice covers the determination of the acceptability of a concrete floor for the installation of resilient flooring.

1.2 This practice includes suggestions for the construction of a concrete floor to ensure its acceptability for installation of resilient flooring.

1.3 This practice does not cover the adequacy of the concrete floor to perform its structural requirements.

1.4 This practice covers the necessary preparation of concrete floors prior to the installation of resilient flooring.

1.5 This practice does not supersede in any manner the resilient flooring or adhesive manufacturer's written instructions. Consult the individual manufacturer for specific recommendations.

1.6 Although carpet tiles, carpet, wood flooring, coatings, films, and paints ae not specifically intended to be included in the category of resilient floor coverings, the procedures included in this practice may be useful for preparing concrete floors to receive such finishes.

1.7 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. See 7.1, 7.1.1, and 7.1.2 for specific warning statements.

1.8 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.9 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
