2.0mm thickness, $3.40/square foot
by Forbo
$30.60
The sheet thickness or gauge is 2.0mm. The rolls are 200 cm (78.74") wide and up to 32 m (105') long. The sheet product is available by the square yard. Rolls are cut to size based on the number of square yards purchased. Please enter below the number of square yards you would like to purchase.

In most cases, you will want to order about 10% more than the actual area you plan to cover. If you know the number of square feet required, you can calculate the approximate number of square yards to order by dividing your square footage by nine. You may want to make adjustments to your yardage based on your room configuration and your plans for seam placement.

Country of Manufacture: Ireland

Colors/Options

Due to the way its made, don't be surprised if your tiles have a yellowish tint on it when it's delivered. This is oxidized linseed oil, which can color the surface in the final stage of manufacturing. The tint will disappear (usually within 24 hours) as soon as your floor is exposed to the light. Also, because linoleum is a natural product, there may be slight color and structural differences between production batches, samples and the delivered goods.

Installation

In order to get a perfect floor it is important to prepare and to pay attention to a proper installation of the floor covering. We offer an assortment of high-quality installation products and tools, which helps you obtaining the desired result. Key factors for successful installation of a floor are:

Jobsite Conditions: The installation should not begin until the work of all other trades has been completed, especially overhead trades. Areas to receive flooring should be clean, fully enclosed and weathertight with the permanent HVAC must be fully operational, controlled and set at a minimum of 68o F (20o C) for a minimum of seven days prior to, during, and seven days after the installation. The flooring material (including adhesive and welding rod) should be conditioned in the same manner for a minimum of 48 hours prior to the installation. Areas to receive flooring shall be adequately lighted to allow for proper inspection of the substrate, installation and seaming of the flooring, and for final inspection.

Substrates: Floors shall be sound, smooth, flat, permanently dry, clean, and free of all foreign materials including, but not limited to, dust, paint, grease, oils, solvents, curing and hardening compounds, sealers, asphalt and old adhesive residue. Wood floors should be double construction with a minimum total thickness of 1_̱. Wood floors must be rigid, free from movement and have at least 18" of well-ventilated air space below. Forbo floor coverings should not be installed over wooden subfloors built on sleepers over on or below grade concrete floors without first making sure that adequate precautions have been taken to ensure the structural integrity of the system, and to prevent moisture migration from the concrete slab. Concrete substrates should be prepared in accordance with the latest version of ASTM F 710, Standard Practice for Preparing Concrete Floors to Receive Resilient Flooring. Concrete shall have a minimum compressive strength of 3,000 psi. Patch and repair minor cracks and other imperfections using only the highest quality patching and leveling compounds in strict accordance to the manufacturer_s recommendations for their use and application. Floor covering should not be installed over expansion joints. Suitable expansion joint covers should be used. It is essential that moisture tests be conducted on all concrete floors regardless of the age or grade level. Conduct calcium chloride tests in accordance with the latest version of ASTM F 1869, Standard Test Method for Measuring Moisture Vapor Emission Rate of Concrete Subfloor Using Anhydrous Calcium Chloride. Measure the internal relative humidity of the concrete slab in accordance with the latest version of ASTM F 2170, Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Humidity in Concrete Floor Slabs Using in situ Probes. One test of each type should be conducted for every 1,000 square feet of flooring (minimum of 3). The tests should be conducted around the perimeter of the room, at columns, and anywhere moisture may be evident. Concrete moisture vapor emissions must not exceed 8.0 lbs. per 1,000 square feet in 24 hours when using Forbo L 885 adhesive or Forbo Sustain 885m adhesive or 10.0 lbs. per 1,000 square feet in 24 hours when using Forbo Sustain 1195 adhesive. Concrete internal relative humidity must not exceed 85% when using Forbo L 885 adhesive or Forbo Sustain 885m adhesive or 95% when using Forbo Sustain 1195 adhesive. A diagram of the area showing the location and results of each test should be submitted to the Architect, General Contractor or End User. If the test results exceed these limitations, the installation must not proceed until the problem has been corrected. Note: Moisture tests indicate conditions at the time of the test only. The absence of an acceptable vapor retarder under the slab, changes in the environment, or other circumstances beyond Forbo_s control, may lead to adverse changes in the moisture condition of the concrete. Forbo_s warranty shall not be extended to cover damage or failures caused by moisture conditions in excess of specified limits that occur after the time of initial testing or installation.

Adhesive: Use Forbo L 885, Forbo Sustain 885m or Forbo Sustain 1195 adhesive. Use a 1/16_̱ x 1/16_̱ x 1/16_̱ square notch trowel. Spread Rate: Approximately 125 square feet/gallon.

Heat Welding (OPTIONAL): Heat welding is not necessary for all installations, however it is optional. For seamless, hygienic watertight installation requirements, use Forbo Marmoweld welding rod. Welding rod dimensions: 4 mm; 165 linear feet per spool.

Flash Coving (OPTIONAL): Flash cove up walls to the desired height. Use Forbo L 885 adhesive or Forbo Sustain 885m adhesive. .
