Reaction To Fire EN 13501-1
Standards and Accreditation – Meets & exceeds the requirements of BS EN 685: 1996 (resilient and homogeneous and heterogeneous PVC floor coverings), BBA 96/3229/3 (laminate floor coverings) and BS EN 649: 1997 (resilient floor coverings).
Maintenance costs – eco tile is a loosely laid system, so that in the event of damage or excessive wear, individual tiles can be lifted out and replaced, which significantly extends the life of the PVC industrial floor and reduces maintenance costs.
Sustainability – eco tile is 100% recyclable. At the end of the product life cycle, the tiles can be granulated and reused to create a new floor. Most floor coverings have a limited lifespan, which is due on the one hand to wear and tear, and on the other hand to the wishes of the building owner to modernize or change the appearance of the building. Most unusable flooring is disposed of in landfills because once it has stuck to the floor, it cannot be reused. Not only can eco tile tiles be recycled, there is also a large market for used tiles.
Life Expectancy – 25+ years
VOC content – trace elements of volatile components of modifiers and additives that are not based on PVC. Significantly lower VOC levels compared to resin-based flooring systems or compared to levels that occur when adhesives are used to glue traditional flooring in place.
Silencing – may sound reductions of up to 46dB of reach be.
Hardness – Standard ISO 868 – eco tile 6mm, 7mm and 10mm – 89-92 Shore A / eco tile Comfort 76 Shore A
Resistance to natural light – EN 20105-B021 – 5 (no damage)
Anti-slip properties – EN 13893 – 0.75
Mean value of slip resistance / slip potential and mean surface roughness
|Profile tile||47 / Low||69 / Very low||31.7|
|Smooth||36 / low||69 / Very low||37.9|
|Durable||44 / Low||69 / Very low||33.4|
Fire behavior – eco tile tiles do not support combustion and achieve class 1 in the flame spread test according to BS 476: Appendix 7 / European classification: BFL
Frictional Wear – Group T
Mechanical resistance – 17 N / mm2 according to DIN 53516
Dimensional Stability – BS EN 434: 1994 – Maximum dimensional change <0.1%
Compressive Strength – ISO 6721-1: 1994, ISO 6721-2: 1994, ISO 6721-6: 1996: 520kg / cm²
Chemical Resistance – Good resistance to the most commonly used chemicals. Ecotile offers good short to medium term resistance, but as with most materials, long term exposure can damage the elastomer, color and stability of the tile. In the event of an accident, we recommend that the tiles be cleaned as soon as possible and, if necessary, lifted off to remove any chemicals that may have seeped underneath. EN 13529 – Common Acids, Oils & Gas Oil – No Deterioration / Solvents – Not resistant to prolonged contact
Color fastness -> 6 (EN 20105 BO2: Method 3)
Cleaning – Daily Cleaning – Use a rotating scrubber-dryer or wet cleaning.
