Armstrong linoleum is designated 100% bio based by the USDA. All Armstrong linoleum products are made from natural ingredients such as including linseed oil, wood powder, resins, and ground limestone. The product’s rich colors come from mineral pigments- and the flooring has an all-natural jute fabric backing. All Armstrong linoleum products have NATURCote™ II, which is a UV-cured coating protecting the floor from scratches and scuffs, as well as reducing the time needed for any maintenance.
This durable, versatile and green flooring is no longer your grandmother’s linoleum. Styles and designs have reinvented linoleum into a fashionable flooring option. Armstrong linoleum flooring is available in wide range of colors and patterns, from traditional marbled patterns to contemporary flecked designs or graphic patterns. Buyers can also find linoleum products in warm, organic earth tones that will accentuate the natural aspect of the flooring.
Hardwood is one of the most sustainable flooring types as it can last generations. Over 90% of Armstrong’s wood is manufactured in the USA using local raw materials, thereby further enhancing the sustainability of Armstrong’s hardwoods. Armstrong also manufactures exotic hardwoods by practicing sustainable forest management.
All Armstrong hardwood flooring is manufactured from only the finest wood specimens, both domestic and exotic. With types ranging from engineered wood, or constructed flooring which is realistic but far more durable than solid hardwood, to solid hardwood to parquet wood flooring, Armstrong hardwood floors are uniquely strong and amazingly durable for today’s busy lifestyles. For easy to install hardwood floors, consider locking hardwood floors.
