Development History

In Ancient Rome used a special technology for the manufacture of floor natural carpets and draperies. She was an impregnated fabric heated to a high temperature oil. Thus has improved strength and performance characteristics. In European countries this method of production of carpet covered only came in the 17th century. This is due to the high share of imports to Europe jute. The so-called cloth-sack cloth with high strength. The Calcutta jute is made from hemp with the addition of flax and Tossa jute. If you handle this fabric special, heated to a high temperature composition of natural wax, turpentine and dyes, the result is not only beautiful but also abrasion-proof floor coating.

The technology was originally developed for the production of MDF, but for several reasons it was abandoned.

What is it?

Many would like to know what it is – Marmoleum. In fact, for this beautiful and high-sounding title hides just linoleum. But the material is isolated from the entire mass of floor coverings, and for good reason. It is very similar to a traditional linoleum. However, the similarity is only external.


If you analyze the customer reviews of Marmoleum, we can see great interest and demand. This is due to the composition. The material – natural linoleum. For production today, as in 1863, used wood pore, flour, cork, jute fiber, natural colorants, and linseed oil. As you can see, there are not any synthetic component.

To burn this coating is possible only with the help of gas cutter. This allows the use of Marmoleum in the kitchen – the reviews confirm that on the floor smoldering cigarette without a trace.

It Is necessary to highlight the decorative effect. Coating can be painted in any shade or color, and change texture. There are compounds that mimic wood, stone and other materials.

The disadvantages include the weight. At high plasticity, and maintaining the emulsion may for a long time, the material has great weight. This is a big plus for flooring, as it will flatten the bumps. But due to the severity decorate the walls or ceiling is not possible.

Despite the strength of the adhesive brittle. Especially on the edges. To store and to transport and work with the material must be very carefully observing certain rules. So, slipping a roll only basis out and then – only once. If the shipment was made, that there are certain risks. Therefore it is better to purchase coverage from sellers, giving a guarantee.
