Installation

Forbo Connect Training Program

Forbo Flooring Systems Australia introduces Connect
A key part of the Forbo Connect Program is an installer and floor contractor technical training. Training can either be conducted at your company location or on-site if working on a Marmoleum specification above 500m²* In NSW we offer training at our head office at Wetherill Park. *Due to practicality and training resource. Smaller area projects will still be considered in application and design.

Floor Care

Cleaning Linoleum Flooring

Reminder: Newly installed floors should not be wet cleaned within 3 days of installation.

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable UV Crosslinked Topshield2 finish. Forbo recommend using Forbo monel cleaning agent.

Monel is a residual soap film detergent which requires basic floor care tools when maintaining Marmoleum and vinyl in areas of high traffic concentration, abrasive sand, and grit or where the floorcoverings will receive minimal maintenance due to time restrictions and where limited use of appropriate cleaning machines is necessitated.

Marmoleum is naturally bacteriostatic or antibacterial (due to linseed) so adding large amounts of disinfectant to the bucket is not necessary.

If ever there was a miracle cleaning product, Forbo Monel is the one. Monel is an effective PH neutral cleaner and has a matt finish that protects Forbo's Marmoleum, vinyl and timber floor coverings.

Monel is used in minute dilutions and can be used in commercial machines or at home with a cap full and mop and bucket.

Helpful Hints

Removing rust marks: cut a lemon in half, squeeze the lemon juice onto the mark and let soak for a few minutes, rub the wetted mark with a clean rag to help agitate the mark, once removed rinse over with clean water.

Removing scuff marks: Attach a new tennis ball to a broom handle (saves bending down) then gently rub the scuff mark until it is removed.

Cleaning Chemicals: Neutral alkaline (pH) is 7. Forbo recommends neutral detergents that are pH 7 (neutral) to a range when mixed with clean water not to exceed 8.5 pH.

The Forbo Monel film can be lightly buffed to give a slightly shinier appearance by using a low speed buffing machine fitted with a white buffing pad. Do not use any type of high speed
buffing machine on Monel as the Monel is a modified soap residue which can be easily damaged and removed by this process.

Always check that chairs and table legs have felts or plastic end stoppers on the bottom. Unprotected metal chair legs may damage your floor. Mobile petition boards generally don’t come with felt or plastic feet. Over time when exposed to moisture from wet mopping, the powder coated feet of these petition boards may bleed their colour into the floor. Please add felts or plastic furniture feet to these mobile petition boards.

As a general rule when using cleaning brushes; test the rigidity/hardness of the brush by moving it slowly down your forearm. If the brush leaves a red mark or chafes it is too hard to be used for manual or mechanical cleaning of Forbo Marmoleum or vinyl floorcoverings.

As a general rule contaminated cleaning water should be changed every 30 m2 of floor area.

Protect newly laid floors

Use Entrance Systems

Keep your floor and premises looking clean & presentable with proper entrance flooring. Forbo Coral reduces cleaning time by up to 65% and can stop up to 95% of dirt and moisture from entering a building. Whether it be a single classroom or large multi-purpose building, Coral can help extend your internal floors life and reduce cleaning costs.

Forbo Marmocar

The Forbo Marmocar is a very useful aid for the transporting and unrolling of 2 metre wide rolls of floor covering. Because of the sliding mechanism of the upper tipping part, little effort is required for one person to load and unload the rolls. The upper part (slide) can be separated from the lower part, which is particularly useful for transporting the Forbo Marmocar.

Specification
Maximum weight of the roll: 300 kg
Maximum diameter of the roll: 40 cm

Welding

To weld or not to weld?

In most of the cases welding a Marmoleum floor is not required. Skilled installers can make perfect joints without using a welding cord. However, sometimes local laws or regulations could make that you need to make sure you put a welding cord between two sheets.

For both situations, Forbo Flooring offers the best solutions. Think about installation guides, instruction videos and welding rods specifically developed for Marmoleum floors.

Visit our Net fit or welding installation page to get more information.

Multi colour welding rod

UNI VS MULTICOLOUR

Marmoweld is a welding rod specifically developed to weld Marmoleum. For all Marmoleum colours we have developed a matching Marmoweld colour. It is available in uni-colour (round rod) or in multi colour (square rod).

For the seams of Marmoleum you can either choose to weld it or the perform a net fit installation, more information on these two options can be found at:WWW.FORBO-FLOORING.COM.au/NETFIT

How to weld linoleum flooring

After installing the floor you have the option to weld the seams. This is in many cases not really necessary but some cases ask for it. In this instruction video, we show you how to weld properly.

Marmoleum sheet wall installation

Marmoleum Sheet Wall Installation

Marmoleum are available in rolls 2.00 metres wide and up to 34 lineal metres in length and can be installed with the roll lengths aligned either vertically or horizontally.

Vertical seams can be avoided in most cases with horizontal alignment, but longer lengths may be challenging to install. Material waste is often reduced with vertical alignment.

Heat welding of the seams is not necessary; however external abutments can be covered with a contrasting cover strip or in such cases vertical heat welding may be required.
