Environmental Solutions
Marmoleum® by Forbo Linoleum Inc.
Marmoleum flooring, like all linoleum products, is manufactured from readily renewable natural ingredients. Marmoleum will provide a very long useful life, with many naturally occurring, inherent performance benefits. At the end of its useful life, Marmoleum is biologically degradable, returning to the environment from which it came. Because the product is naturally organic, its performance is enhanced by time, as exposure to air serves to harden and increase its durability - yet the floor remains quiet and comfortable underfoot. Flooring also possesses naturally occurring anti-static properties and generates a natural bactericidal effect. Marmoleum by Forbo Linoleum Inc. Circle 904.
