Floor Care

Our linoleum floors are easy to clean and maintain thanks to their durable Topshield2 finish. Marmoleum with Topshield2 is the only resilient flooring with an occupancy-ready finish. This means that at the time of installation, cleaning with a neutral pH cleaning solution is all that is necessary. The Topshield2 finish also provides exceptional performance against soiling, staining, scratching, and scuffing. Topshield2 has been designed to create a Marmoleum that meets the demands of everyday use and is even more resistant to dirt pick-up, less prone to wear and has improved resistance to scratches and stains, and thus creating a floor that demonstrates a lasting performance over time.

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. Think about installation guides, instruction videos and welding rods specifically developed for Marmoleum floors.

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.
