Marmoleum, Forbo's main linoleum brand, stands for versatility in application as well as in colour and design. In addition this natural floor covering is extremely duarble and offers the most sustainable choice whenever a resillient floor is considered.

All Marmoleum floors now include Topshield2, a double UV cured finish that takes care of beautiful floors with a lasting appearance retention.



Ease of maintenance

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable Topshield2 finish. The Forbo Floorcare system for linoleum supports two different methods, which are determinded by the availability of dedicated tools: the Spray method is the most effective and economical method and is performed by using a one-disk or rotary machine. For situations where a rotary machine is not available or practical, the manual Monel method can be applied.

The Spray method Mechanical floor care, using a rotary machine.
In most situations the Spray-method is the best option. Spray-cleaning will keep the floor in optimal condition and inhibit the adhesion of dirt. The Spray-method provides a dry and hygienic environment.

The Monel method Manual Forbo floor care, using basic floor care tools
The Monel method (or ‘soap film method’) is the best option when a rotary machine is not available or not practical. A water-soluble Monel film prevents stubborn dirt from adhering to the flooring surface. Monel provides a satin gloss and an improved slip resistance.

Floorperformance in the real world

Topshield2 is a floor finish, developped by Forbo for linoleum. Topshield2 has been designed as a highly performing finish to create a ‘ready to use’ Marmoleum. A floor that requires no initial maintenance or polymer application and is even more resistant to dirt pick-up, less prone to wear and has improved resistance to scratches and stains.

The reality of the day-to-day life of a floor is that it encounters both ‘use and abuse’ without being able to balance its performance with a prescribed cleaning and maintenance regime, as in reality, this is not always carried out exactly on time. The floor needs to withstand the traces of every day use; the weather of the season, the footprints and dirt carried into your house, the scratches and stains occurring by accident as well as the overall retention of the appearance of the floor over time. Even where every floor starts out as a new floor just after installation, it will need to keep up is performance over a lifetime of many years. Marmoleum has a proven track record and also now is the modern floor for lasting performance: today, tomorrow, forever.


Making linoleum
