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

Multi colour welding rod

Marmoweld

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).

On the Marmoweld page you can find more information about these products.

Floorcare

Forbo FloorCare method for Linoleum floors

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable Topshield finish. The Forbo FloorCare system for linoleum supports 2 different methods, the Spray method and the Monel method, which are determined by the availability of dedicated tools.

The Spray method is the most effective and economical method and is performed by using a one-disk or rotary machine. For situations where a rotary machine is not available or practical, the manual Monel method can be applied.
