Linoleum is resistant to the short-term impact of weak acids and alkaline solutions.
When cleaned and maintained at regular intervals, linoleum can be considered highly resistant to ageing.
In accordance with applicable rules and standards, linoleum is also suitable for areas with increased slip hazards.
Do not require additional precautions during laying.
For regular care and maintenance, wiping the linoleum with a wet or damp cloth is sufficient.
Linoleum is a material with inherent permanent antistatic properties.
Over 95% of all color variations result from variances in lighting. The drying room film caused by the natural ingredients will reduce as exposure to light increases.
In Germany, the history of linoleum began in Delmenhorst in 1882. By 1912, 10 factories had been established. In 1926, the three Delmenhorst Hansa, Schlüssel and Anker factories and the Bietigheim and Maximiliansau production sites merged to form the Berlinbased Deutsche Linoleum-Werk-Aktiengesellschaft headquartered in Bietigheim from 1938). In 1969, linoleum production was concentrated at the Delmenhorst Schlüssel factory. In 1998, Armstrong World Industries Inc. took over the company, now a joint stock corporation, known as DLW since 1969. The company’s new name: Armstrong DLW AG.
Suitable for IT areas or other rooms used to accommodate data transmission systems.
Organic filler added to linoleum cement.
No hazardous waste is generated. Old floor coverings are sent to landfill, incinerated or composted. Offcuts from production are reused.
forms as a result of light deprivation. Light exposure reduces the film which builds back up again to a lesser extent when light exposure decreases.
Due to its largely natural ingredients, no harmful emissions are generated during the production and disposal of linoleum.
There are profile and skirting board systems. Installation as per manufacturer instructions.
Carried out after completion of construction project to protect the surface, makes regular cleaning easier.
Old grade no longer manufactured, with patterns and colors extending evenly through the entire layer.
Inlay works created by precision cutting ornaments in two or more sheets of linoleum in different colors. CAD-assisted development. Cutting is carried out on ultrasound cutting systems.
Linseed oil and products derived from it are characterized by yellowing in the dark. For this reason, linoleum has a yellow cast or “drying room” film, which fades when the material is exposed to light.
Strongest linoleum grade, 4.0 mm thick. Military tank test drives did not cause any damage.
Mix of linseed oil, resins and dry materials to create the linoleum binder.
Generated during the in-house recycling of production waste.
Extracted from the seeds of the oil flax plant and fed into the linoleum production cycle in naturally pure condition. Acts as a binder.
White pigments are used to brighten the dark brown base of the linoleum. All colored pigments used are toxicologically harmless and physiologically safe.
An outdated floor treatment. Regular wet or damp cleaning is sufficient.
Old grade no longer manufactured. The pattern was usually printed onto the right side, using a flat-bed printing method.
New permanent surface finish optimizing both cleaning and environmental performance.
For linoleum, this parameter ranges from 0.07 to 0.10 mm.
Usually 200 cm. Sheets rolled directly from production are 20 to 31 meters long.
In general, linoleum seams should be heatsealed with weld rods.
Linoleum has a very long service life, usually extending over several decades.
Linoleum rolls should be stored in upright position in spaces kept at normal temperature.
Linoleum is sensitive to moisture. For this reason, all requirements in respect of subfloor residual moisture must be met.
After curing, the linoleum surface is usually finished. An acrylate dispersion layer is applied and dried by infrared radiation.
Between 2.0 and 4.0 mm. In order to enhance impact sound and thermal insulation, a cork flour base may be laid (consisting of coarser cork flour without pigments and mineral fillers, thickness 2.0 to 3.2 mm).
Linoleum can generally be laid over subfloors equipped with underfloor heating systems.
