What is Linoleum?


By ProMatcher Staff



Linoleum is made from:

- Linseed oil (from the flax plant)
- Resins
- Wood flour/sawdust
- Limestone
- Pigments and coloring agents
- Powdered cork

Linoleum is a natural product that is commonly used to manufacture floor tiles. It is affordable, durable, and comfortable. Linoleum is naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. As a result, it is a popular flooring choice in hospitals, schools, stores and daycare centers. Linoleum tiles, when installed with the proper adhesive, can handle heavy foot traffic. Linoleum wipes clean and requires very little maintenance.


Top Brands

Linoleum flooring comes in both tiles and sheets. The tiles come in several different sizes and thicknesses. Linoleum sheeting panels are typically two meters wide and also come in several different thicknesses. Most linoleum flooring is made overseas and imported to the United States. Here is a list of some of the top brands:

1. Armstrong

2. Flexco

3. Torlys

4. Expanko

Environmental Impact

Linoleum flooring is currently coming back in style due to its relatively limited impact on the environment. Linoleum is made of all-natural and recycled products. Additionally, it does not release any potentially harmful fumes.
