Natural CO2 Neutral Flooring

A true natural beauty

At Forbo, we have been inspired by what is all around us and we are convinced that our best engineer is nature. With its help, we have created Marmoleum.

Marmoleum is a unique linoleum floor covering made of natural raw materials such as linseed oil, wood flour, limestone, resin and jute. These raw materials are obtained from their natural habitat, where they grow and renew themselves, often in just 12 months. Forbo is of course committed to work with respect with the women and men supplying our raw materials.

Linseed oil is pressed from the seeds of the flax plant. The linseed oil is heated together with pine resin to form a linoleum paste. To this paste we add wood flour, a waste product from the certified forestry industry. Limestone is available in abundance and is the fourth ingredient added to the linoleum mixture to make linoleum granules. Organic pigments and natural iron oxide provide the colouring for the granules. The fibres of the jute plant are used for the jute mesh carrier on which linoleum is calendared.

By learning to work with our planet and its organic cycles, we are able to make one of the most sustainable floor coverings. Marmoleum has been awarded a large array of international environmental certificates such as the Nordic Swan and the Blue Angel. In addition Marmoleum floor coverings improve the environmental and well-being score in building rating schemes such as LEED, BREEAM and the Well building standard. Read more about the eco labels that have been awarded to Forbo&#39;s products.

CO2 Neutral Flooring, cradle to gate, without offsetting

By specifying Marmoleum you are choosing a floor that is CO2 neutral, naturally.

The volume of CO2 absorbed by the raw materials used to create linoleum as the plants, trees and crops are grown exceeds the amount of CO2 that is emitted while making the product. Our Marmoleum is produced in a modern, energy efficient environment using 100% green electricity.

All this results in a CO2 neutral, natural, circular floor covering solution.

Every square meter of Marmoleum provides a bonus for the environment and helps reduce CO2 emissions. Marmoleum fits into any sustainable interior. We have a choice: by using durable materials in our homes, offices, schools, trains, hospitals and shops, we can create better environments!

Performance

A strong floor

Marmoleum with Topshield pro is the ultimate floor covering in many ways. Developed with the latest technologies and based on our years of experience, our Topshield pro finish features a two layer system and can therefore be repaired or refreshed in cases of damage or after years of use. The Topshield pro primer bonds with the linoleum surface, creating an initial protection layer. The second layer provides a tough scratch-resistant and dirt repellent finish. Both layers are thermally and UV cured. Because the floor lasts for so long and is so easy to clean, Marmoleum has a low cost of ownership.

Marmoleum with Topshield pro is a ready to use floor that requires no initial maintenance or polymer application and that offers 3x better protection:

1. Better lasting wear resistance
2. Better stain resistance
3. Better cleaning and maintenance

For more information, please download our Topshield pro brochure

Or you can watch our Marmoleum Topshield pro video

Marmoleum with Topshield pro offers you:

Proven performance: millions of m2 sold and continuous improvement based on the latest technology
Health consciousness: Marmoleum is naturally bacteriostatic, Allergy UK approved, has low emissions and is free from toxins and plastics
No chemicals: no wax or polish needed to ensure optimal appearance for years
Water tightness: resistant to water even during long exposure, without the need for welding
Superior hygiene: bacteria such as MRSA cannot grow on the surface of Marmoleum, making it naturally bacteriostatic.
Durability and great appearance: the hard-wearing and durable surface ensures easy cleaning

Infection Control

Infection Control

Marmoleum's ability to 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, the anti-bacterial qualities of Marmoleum won't diminish over time, giving peace of mind and constant protection from the moment it is installed.

Making Marmoleum

We take pride in creating Marmoleum

The craft of making Marmoleum originates from the 19th century. Making linoleum was literally a handmade process, one in which the mixing, maturing and calandering of the raw materials was a trade mastered by few.

The craft of manufacturing linoleum has developed over the past 150 years into a lean, automated and energy-efficient production process. Forbo has driven this development with its Marmoleum brand. Making Marmoleum is still an art, which is not taught at any trade or craft school. In fact, only a handful of people know how to make Marmoleum. Determining the right mixture of ingredients, maintaining the right time for the raw materials to settle and applying the correct temperature and pressure are skills that our experts must master. We are proud of our experts as much as they take pride in creating every piece of Marmoleum.
