About Marmoleum

About Marmoleum

Marmoleum, Forbo's brand of linoleum, is a natural floor made from 97% natural raw materials, 70% of which are rapidly renewable, along with a 43% recycled content. This makes Marmoleum THE sustainable flooring choice.

Natural raw materials
The key raw materials used in the linoleum production include linseed oil, which comes from the flax plant seeds, wood flour as production waste from controlled forestry plantations and jute, a crop whose fibres provide the material for the membrane onto which the linoleum is calendared.

What makes Marmoleum flooring special is that it is created entirely from raw materials obtained from their natural habitat right where they grow and renew, often in just 12 months time. Jute and flax are annual crops that can be harvested just like wheat or corn. Extracting rosin is a continuous process, while wood flour, a waste material from the timber industry, is derived from European production forests. Limestone is available in abundance.

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.

150 years of Linoleum

Celebrating 150 years of Linoleum

Frederick Walton
Frederick Walton discovered linoleum and patented its manufacturing process in 1863. It is quite remarkable that a product, discovered in the days of gaslights and horse-drawn carriages, is still used in applications for which it was originally designed, such as flooring in healthcare and educational facilities

Impressive references
Over 100 years and more, linoleum has found its way into an incredibly large number of buildings all over the world. It was the dining hall flooring for the famous Alcatraz prison in San Francisco, CA, as well as the elegant White House in Washington, DC. Not to be outdone, linoleum is also installed in the Kremlin in Moscow, the German Reichstag and Buckingham Palace. Even Anne Frank's house in Amsterdam (1938) featured linoleum, as did Sorbonne University and the Institute of Madame Curie.

Also today many of the new public buildings world wide are installed with Marmoleum flooring, from the new opera house in Olso or the latest tribal art museum from Jean Nouvelle in Paris. Marmoleum remains a classic floor covering that is loved by architects because of its authenticity, versatility and natural character.
