Standard certified by France’s Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment which refers to floor coverings, the NF UPEC. Each letter of UPEC refers to a specific feature of the material: U – resistance to wear; P – resistance to perforation; E – resistance to the effects of humidity; C – resistance to chemical agents, such as detergents. The UPEC codes assign a numerical value to each letter, ranging from 0 to 4. The higher the number, the higher the resistance.
