The Marmoleum Slate Collection offers an authentic-looking slate with embossed surface texture and marbled colors. These combine to evoke a timeless aesthetic of stone with the warmth and purity of linoleum. All the colors remind us of real slate found around the world. There are five slate varieties ranging from dark anthracite grey to lighter varieties as well as two qualities in which copper and metal colour tones are mixed to create a beautiful shimmer on top of the slate surface. This product received the Reddot Design Award in 2017 for its innovative close-to-nature design.
Like all Forbo Marmoleum sheet products, the Slate collection is made with 98% natural ingredients (78% pre-consumer recycled). Forbo Marmoleum uses 100% renewable electricity to manufacture its products and is CO2 neutral. Marmoleum is free of PVC, PET, synthetic rubber and plasticizers.
Marmoleum is used in numerous schools, hospitals and commercial buildings in part because it has natural bacteriostatic properties (natural antimicrobial) which are confirmed by independent laboratories, even against the bacteria MRSA. Marmoleum sheet floors will not off-gas hazardous chemicals; this makes them safe for everyone, even the chemically sensitive. In addition, natural anti-static properties reduce the accumulation of dust, as well as the risk of electric shock, and make for easy dust and damp-mop cleaning.
Marmoleum slate complies with REACH, the highest European standard (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) as well as the highest California standard CARB2. Marmoleum is SMART certified as a sustainable product.
Unlike vinyl flooring, Marmoleum is easier to clean, lasts longer and is biodegradable.
Marmoleum sheeting may be applied over subfloors made of plywood, concrete, Vinyl, VCT or other resilient materials as long as it meets the conditions noted in the substrate evaluation & preparation guidelines. See pdf in side bar. Same for ceramic tile which also may require a leveling product to fill the grout lines so it does not telegraph through. In all cases a bond test must be conducted to make sure the adhesive is able to set up and cure properly.
This new slate product doesn't look cheap or plastic like a slate wannabe. The embossing is highly random and the colors are very matte, just like real slate. It also has better slip resistance. Marmoleum is our most popular eco-friendly floor for all the right reasons; it's natural, durable, sustainable, fairly priced and easy to maintain. What more could you ask for?
