Officially the Determination Of Staining And Resistance To Chemicals (EN ISO 26987:2012), a sample of PRF™ has been made in contact for at least 2 hours with several chemicals and commonly used products. The testing body then evaluated the specimen flooring against any sign of staining, dulling, softening, and swelling.
