Contract Flooring Supplies provides the full range of linoleum products from Forbo. This wonder product is a natural floor 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 fibres provide the material for the membrane onto which the linoleum is calendared.
Marmoleum, the Forbo linoleum brand, is special in that it is created entirely from raw materials obtained from their natural habitat right where they grow and renew, often in just 12 months. Jute and flax are annual crops that can be harvested just like wheat or corn. Extracting rosin is a continuous process, while wood flour – a waste material from the timber industry – is derived from European production forests. Limestone is available in abundance.
Marmoleum is durable, long lasting and naturally bacteriostatic which means it is resistant to MRSA and E-Coli and is approved by Allergy UK.
Available in a colourful patterned, solid, linear or marbled effect.
