7/8/2011

The word linoleum derives from the Latin terms linum as in “linseed” and oleum “oil”, and thanks to its composition of regenerative materials and is a durable material for floor or furniture covers thanks to its longevity. Cork or wood dust, linseed oil and natural resins, lime, color pigments and jute fiber mesh as the backing constitute the main components of linoleum. The Forbo company offers a broad but also highly specialized line of linoleum floor coverings for a vast array of different requirements: linoleum is the material of choice in the healthcare sector, for educational establishments, offices, hotels and the hospitality trade, for stores, industry, and even for sports floor coverings. Forbo has, moreover, developed a water-based surface protection for linoleum coverings. “Topshield” features two layers: the underlay section evens out irregularities in the surface of the material. The upper layer provides highly effective protection against dirt, scratches and traces of use; it facilitates cleaning and care while delivering long-lasting color beauty. If necessary, the surface protection can simply be renovated and in part even be refinished without much effort.
