Linoleum is a performance bio-based material invented by Frederick Walton in 1855. Linoleum is made from linseed oil (flaxseed oil), resin, ground cork, and wood flour. It is often used for flooring, wallcoverings, and ceilings. It is a durable, economical, and sustainable solution for high-traffic areas. Linoleum can be embossed with patterns, painted with colors, or printed with a hardwood grain. Pigment can also be added into linoleum in the liquid stage. It comes in roll or tile format depending on the application.
