Floor Care

Floor Care for Eternal Sheet Floors

Forbo Eternal products are a homogeneous sheet vinyl that have lacquered finish wear layer that is transparent, allowing for easy cleaning
and provides a natural appearance to the floorcovering. This finish ensures a maximal wear resistance and maintains the design of the
floor. A non woven, fully impregnated, glass fleece layer functions as the backbone of the floor, ensuring dimensional stability. Adding to
stability and the high quality standard of Eternal is the optimized calendared backing, a firm but flexible and embossed layer to allow easy
installation. The backing layer, which is a substantial part of the construction, contains 40% recycled content.

There are generally three types of cleanings are performed on Eternal Sheet Vinyl. The first is an initial cleaning. You would want to wait a minimum of five days following the installation before conducting initial cleaning or other wet cleaning procedures in order to allow the adhesive to dry and cure properly. The initial cleaning is done for new installations exposed to normal construction soil and traffic.

The second type of cleaning is a routine cleaning. The routine cleaning should be performed a minimum of once a day, depending on the application, type of traffic and hours of operation.

The third, and final, type of cleaning is an interim cleaning. The interim cleaning should be performed as needed, depending on the application, type of traffic and hours of operation.

Additional maintenance may be performed if necessary.

Forbo offers a full line of cleaning products including a Neutral pH Cleaner, Spray Buff, Mop on Restorer, Heavy Duty Cleaner, Matte Floor Finish (for commercial use), Gloss Floor Finish (for commercial use), Hydrogen Peroxide Cleaner, Adhesive Remover, & a Residential Floor Finish.

Installation

In order to get a perfect floor it is important to prepare and to pay attention to a proper installation of the floor covering. Forbo offers an assortment of high quality installation products and tools, which helps you obtaining the desired result. Key factors for successful installation of a floor are:

Jobsite Conditions
Areas to receive material should be clean, fully enclosed and weather tight with the permanent HVAC in operation. A minimum temperature 68º F (20º C) should be established at least seven days prior to beginning the installation, maintained during the installation, and for at least seven days following the installation. The installation should not begin until the work of all other trades has been completed, especially overhead trades. Any areas to receive material should be adequately lighted to allow for proper inspection of the substrate, installation, seaming and for final inspection.

Subfloor Preparation
The installation of a floor starts with the subfloor, which must be sound, smooth, flat, clean, and permanently dry. In order to ensure that the moisture condition of concrete substrates is within acceptable limits, it is critical that moisture testing be conducted on ALL concrete substrates, regardless of age or grade level, including those where resilient flooring has already been installed. Moisture testing should not be conducted unless a stable, conditioned environment as described under the Jobsite Conditions section has been established. The 3 moisture testes that Forbo recommends conducting are as follows: a Calcium Chloride (Moisture Vapor Emission) Test, a Relative Humidity Test, and a pH Test. Performing adhesive bond tests is also highly recommended. Bond testing will aid in identifying both the working characteristics of the adhesive (open time and working time) for the site conditions, and also any potential bonding problems.

Material Storage and Handling
Areas where materials are to be stored should be a stable, conditioned environment as described under the Jobsite Conditions section. All materials and adhesives should be acclimated to these conditions for at least 48 hours prior to the installation. Material should be delivered to the job site in original, unopened packaging, with all labels intact. All rolls should be stored standing upright, labels up, to ensure that the color, roll and batch numbers can be easily read.

Scribing and cutting
A good start makes all the difference: pay extra attention to the first sheet of floor covering! A set of professional installation tools contributes to a perfect result.

Adhering
A perfectly installed floor requires perfect adhesion. Forbo recommends using our V 885 adhesive for Vinyl sheet installations. The flooring material must always be placed into wet adhesive and rolled immediately with a 100 pound roller. Check for adhesive transfer frequently. There must be a wet transfer of adhesive to the material backing in order to achieve a secure bond. Always carefully read and follow the instructions on the adhesive label regarding the use and application of the adhesive, and always review and follow safety and health warnings included on the label and MSDS. After installation, make sure that the room is ventilated, in order to allow the adhesive to dry. Heavy foot traffic and rolling loads are not recommended over a freshly installed floor, until the adhesive has set thoroughly, which in normal conditions takes about 72 hours.

Seaming
The seams should be heat welded no sooner than the day following installation.

Sustainable and Durable

Committed to our environment

The Eternal general purpose vinyl collection is a prime example of Forbo’s commitment to protecting the environment and investing in a sustainable future. The Eternal collection is produced using “green” energy and modern production technology that reduces the processes involved to a minimum. Eternal conforms to all standards, including the new VOC emission classes. And Eternal is made in Europe for largely European markets, reducing transportrelated
carbon emissions. The easy cleaning, minimum demand for detergents and long lasting performance contribute to a better environment in many ways.

Compliance Plus
As a principle, Forbo works to “Compliance Plus” - a commitment set by our own standards and one that goes beyond government regulations and requirements – and we see investments in people, processes and products that further improve our environmental performance as investments for the future, not a cost of doing business. We use independent Life Cycle Assessments to constantly seek ways to measure and minimise the environmental impact of our products from raw material extraction to end of life.

Reducing cleaning & maintenance
Reducing cleaning is another element in sustainability and performance. The PUR Pearl finish makes the product easy to clean and its lasting performance means that Eternal will stay in prime condition, even under heavy traffic conditions. In addition, installing one of our entrance flooring
products will help cut dirt and moisture penetration by up to 90%.
