Fun to design, easy to install Marmoleum click is an ecologically produced, natural linoleum on HDF with a cork layer, that comes in approx. sizes of 12 x 36 inch panels (actual panel size 300mm x 910mm) or 12 x 12 inch squares actual square size 300mm x 300mm). Its unique construction with the patented click system, combined with a broad color palette, give you a naturally cozy flooring.

Natural raw materials
Linoleum is produced from renewable materials: linseed oil, rosins, wood flour, jute and ecologically responsible pigments. The harvesting or extraction of these raw materials consumes relatively little energy.

 

Linseed oil, which is obtained by pressing the seeds of the flax plant, is
linoleum’s most important raw material (and the origin of its name).
Throughout the years, linseed oil has been used for many purposes,
ranging from cooking to providing quick relief to people suffering from
a cold.

Rosin, which is tapped from pine trees using a method that does not harm their growth, provides the binding agent for linoleum. Together with the
linseed oil, rosin gives linoleum its unique combination of strength
and flexibility.

Wood flour is used because it has the unique characteristic of being able to bind with the pigments. This gives our linoleum products their beautiful colours and ensures their long-term colour-fastness.

 

Cork flour is the ground bark of the cork oak. We source ours from plantations in Mediterranean countries. The bark is peeled every seven to ten years without damaging either the lifespan or the health of the tree. Cork flour is used as a raw material in Bulletin Board and Corklinoleum.

Limestone is found all over the world in enormous quantities. In its very finely ground form, it is an important raw material for linoleum.

 

 

The vibrant, beautiful colors of our linoleum are created by using ecologically responsible organic pigments. The pigments used in our products do not contain heavy metals (such as lead or cadmium) or other harmful substances, and do not pose a threat to the environment.

Jute, which is spun from the fibres of jute plants in India and Bangladesh,
is the preferred backing of our products because of its natural origins. Not only is there an abundant, renewable supply of jute, but it also provides critical export opportunities for these developing economies.
