Marmoleum is USDA certified 100% biobased. This natural linoleum floor covering is made from 97% natural raw materials, 70% of which are rapidly renewable, along with a 43% recycled content. The key raw materials used in its production include linseed oil, which comes from the flax plant seeds, wood flour as production waste from controlled forestry plantations and jute, a crop whose fibers provide the material for the membrane onto which the linoleum is calendared.
Inspired by the natural texture of stone. Marmoleum Slate introduces a unique embossed texture that adds a new dimension to our Marmoleum flooring. The result is a surface that has the timeless aesthetic of stone with the warmth and purity of linoleum. The slate look is sophisticated and refined and plays with the light making your floor come to life. The embossing also improves the slip resistance of the floor (R10).

Colors/OptionsDue to the way it's made, don't be surprised if your Marmoleum Sheet has 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.
In order to get a perfect floor it is important to prepare and to pay attention to a proper installation of the floor covering. Forbo offers an assortment of high quality installation products and tools, which helps you obtaining the desired result. >View: Marmoleum Sheet Installation Guidelines
Care and Maintenance
Marmoleum 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.
We recommend waiting a minimum of five days following the installation before conducting initial cleaning or other wet cleaning procedures in order to allow the adhesive to dry and cure properly. The initial cleaning is done for new installations exposed to normal construction soil and traffic.
Additional maintenance may be performed if necessary.
