cocoa

Innovation that comes naturally. Marmoleum Cocoa embraces our ethos of sustainable design and truly is a new addition to our Marmoleum flooring. By using a waste product from another industry we are collaborating to reduce waste, improve recycling and contribute to a better environment.

By adding Cocoa shells to the traditional Marmoleum ingredients we have created an innovation in construction and aesthetics. The result is a new and exciting surface texture that is both natural looking and contemporary in feel.

The inclusion of cocoa adds a rich granular look that is fresh, modern and also provides dirt hiding properties.

    Welding
    In the majority of installations, Marmoleum does not need to be welded as it is completely dimensionally stable and will not shrink. However, if welding is
    the preferred option, there are matching welding cords for every Marmoleum design.

    Coving
    A full range of pre-formed skirting and corner pieces are available to ensure a smooth, hygienic finish to your Marmoleum installation.

    LRV
    In architecture, Light Reflectance Value (LRV) is a measure of the percentage of visible and usable light that is reflected from a surface when illuminated by a light source. The LRV can be linked to a number of decisions on which a colour can be chosen. The approximate LRV of a colour indicates the amount of visible light that a colour will reflect. Black has a light reflectance value of 0% and absorbs all light. White has a light reflectance value of 100% and keeps a building light and cool. It also links to the use of electricity where lighter colours need less lighting, which is a direct saving for the environment. All Forbo products carry a light reflection value, which can be found in the text next to the enlargement of the tabletop.

    NCS
    NCS colour coding describes the colour of any material. With numeric colour codes, so called NCS Notations, such as NCS S 1080-Y70R, any colour can be described precisely. NCS has defined 1950 standardised colours at every 10th step of the colour space to represent the entire colour space. Each notation's colour sample is visually identical to any other colour sample of the same notation, whether it is a standardised colour or a colour in between the 1950 standard colours. This way you can find matching flooring colours with other coloured items in a room.

    The 'Natural Colour System' NCS has been developped in order to indentify the colour value, its intensity and hue for a product. By using the NCS maesurement system, colours and colour groups can be identified and matched regardless of the material that has been used. In this way colour coordinates for different aspects of the interior of a building can be determined. All Forbo Flooring products carry an NCS code, which can be found next to the enlargement of the tabletop and in our downloadcenter.
