UPECA simple and significant method to define the grade of compatibility between the fioor and the settled function, that is between the fioor and the environmental features, is the “Classement UPEC”, french method constituted by the rating of the premises in relation to the severity of the application terms and to the consequent levels of performance required by the fiooring. The rating uses the following letters: U = grade of wear and abrasion resistance (indexes from 1 to 4 with number increasing in relation to greater resistance). P = grade of mechanical resistance (indexes from 1 to 4 with number increasing in relation to greater resistance). E = water absorption (indexes from 0 to 3 with number increasing in relation to better absorption). C = resistance to chemical products and staining (indexes from O to 3 with number incrasing in relation to greater resistance to acids, aikalis and staining products).
