corkment

A Corkment underlay can be used in combination with regular Marmoleum to achieve an impact sound reduction of 14dB. First the Corkment should be installed - with the jute side up - at right angles to the same direction as that of the Marmoleum sheet.

Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to set. Then install the Marmoleum on top of the Corkment. Follow the standard installation procedures.

    Environment

    Marmoleum: magnificent by nature

    Created from natural, renewable materials, Marmoleum flooring is the most sustainable resilient flooring available. It contains no phthalates, no plasticisers and no mineral oil.

    The key raw materials used in the Marmoleum production include:

    ● linseed oil, which comes from the flax plant seeds
    ● wood flour from controlled forests and
    ● jute, the natural backing onto which the linoleum is calandered.

    Marmoleum flooring has received many worldwide quality marks and certifications for being environmentally friendly. We are proud that environmental experts confirm our statement. Read more about our Eco labels.

    CO2 neutral product range
    Because of its unique properties, its natural ingredients and its modern manufacturing process, Marmoleum is a CO2 neutral product range, measured from cradle to gate. Find out more about the sustainable character of Marmoleum on our CO2 neutral section

    Topshield2 is Forbo Flooring's high-performing UV-finish which is applied to all Marmoleum floor coverings. Topshield2 prevents staining, scuffing and scratching for lasting appearance retention and provides for easy cleaning and maintenance at lower intervals.

    Topshield2 finish

    Floor performance in the real world

    Topshield2 is a floor finish, developed 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.
