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.

Marmoleum is still found today in many public buildings worldwide from the new opera house in Olso or the latest tribal art museum from Jean Nouvel in Paris. Marmoleum remains a classic that is loved by Architects because of its authenticity and versatility.

Marmoleum, a natural talent and now CO2 Neutral

There's a craft to making really good Marmoleum. Fortunately, we've had 100 years experience in getting it just right. Forbo's Marmoleum is made from 97% natural raw materials. So it's no surprise that it is the world's leading sustainable resilient flooring. Marmoleum is what it is, a genuine authentic floor. Marmoleum is a future proof option that is now manufactured CO2 neutral and all because of the growing phase of the natural ingredients and not due to offsetting.

How it's Made
• Made from 97% natural raw materials, 72% of which are renewable and will grow back within 10 years
• A world first CO2 produced flooring
• The **flax plant
is where we derive Marmoleum's key ingredient, linseed oil.
• Marmoleum is made with 43% recycled content to reduce the need for virgin raw material
• Marmoleum is 100% biodegradable
• Of all the electricity we buy, 100% comes from renewable sources. This means our linoleum production sites are part of an effective environmental management system and achieve ISO14001 certification.

How it Performs
• Our Marmoleum performs well from the minute it's installed, but it also becomes stronger over time, making it more durable. And because it lasts for so long, and is so easy to clean, Marmoleum has a very low cost of ownership
Topshield2 finish, which, together with naturally antibacterial ingredients, means the floor is hygienic and needs less cleaning with fewer harmful chemicals
Approved by Allergy UK and with TVOC's 30 times lower than the European norm and CO2 emissions 50% lower than other resilient flooring, you can relax knowing that Marmoleum contributes to a healthier indoor environment
• Through our Back to the Floor scheme, we can collect installation off-cuts from our Marmoleum floors and recycle them back into Forbo products at our plant in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

Marmoleum Raw Materials

Infection Control

Ultimate in Natural Infection Control

Marmoleum's ability to naturally inhibit the growth of bacteria stems from the natural raw materials that go into its production, namely linseed oil. An inherent property of the product and bio-based raw material origins, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed. Proven by leading laboratories to have an inhibitive effect on common and not so common micro-organisms.
