What are Wear Resistant Floors?

When evaluating flooring materials, wear resistance refers to the life of the floor. How will it hold up under foot and mechanical traffic? Will continuous use of the surface cause scuff and scratch marks? Some surfaces hold up better than others. Wear-resistant floors are specially formulated to stand up to harsh conditions and heavy traffic. They also stand up to dirt, grime and routine cleanings. Stonhard floors are tested to meet standards set forth by the American Society for Testing and Materials. (ASTM D-4060, CS-17 http://www.astm.org/Standards/D4060.htm)

Many environments benefit from wear-resistant floors, especially those with heavy foot and equipment traffic.

Benefit highlights include:

  • Keeping floors attractive for many years without having to repair or replace
