The classification for the surface resistance to abrasion applies to foil, laminate, melamine faced boards, pigmented and transparent coatings. It does not apply to the surfaces covered by EN 14434. The classification for the surface resistance to scratching has two methods, A and B. Method A applies to all types of surface coatings and coverings except for melamine faced boards and HPL. Method B applies to all types of surfaces. It does not apply to finishes on leather and fabrics.
