Notes: The use of floor tiles with recovered materials content may be appropriate only for
specialty purpose
uses (e.g., raised, open-web tiles for drainage on school kitchen flooring). Such
specialty purpose uses
involve limited flooring areas where grease, tar, snow, ice, wetness or similar substances
or conditions are
likely to be present. Thus, EPA has no recovered materials content level
recommendations for floor tiles made
with recovered materials for standard office or more general purpose uses.
The recommended recovered materials content levels are based on dry weight of the raw
materials, exclusive of
any additives such as adhesives, binders, or coloring agent. EPA's recommendation does
not preclude agencies
from purchasing floor tiles or patio blocks manufactured from other materials. It simply
recommends that
procuring agencies, when purchasing floor tiles or patio blocks made from rubber or
plastic, purchase these
items made from recovered materials when these items meet applicable specifications
and performance
requirements.
