CORQUES LIQUID LINO FLUID APPLIED SEAMLESS RESILIENT FLOORING FOR HEALTHCARE/MEDICAL/LONG-TERM CARE/EDUCTAION

Sometimes you must stop and ask yourself…”Is there a better way?”

Is it possible to improve something that has been completed the same way since its invention?

If there was a better way would you embrace this change?

Vadel has searched the globe to bring you the most exciting advancement in the history of Resilient Flooring.

In 1860 the fabrication of linoleum was invented by the Scotsman Frederic Walton. Linoleum is made through the binding of linseed oil and natural materials such as cork and wood flour, mineral fillers, rosin and pigments. After the mixing of the ingredients, the linoleum paste is rolled out on a burlap sheet. For the hardening process the linoleum is kept hanging in the so called ‘drying chambers’ for several weeks at a temperature of 30 degrees Centigrade. Only when the linseed oil is oxidized the linoleum is ready for transport and installation. The rolls are about 30 meters long, 2 lm wide and weigh up to 200 kg. On site the linoleum is cut to measurement and glued to the subfloor. The joints are welded with welding cord. This process of fabrication is practically unchanged since its origin and takes place over more than 150 years.

Duracryl International has invented a new technique to produce linoleum on site. By adding an extra sustainable vegetable oil binder to the linoleum mix it is now possible to pour liquid linoleum. This extra binder creates a hybrid hardening within hours. The binder is based on natural renewable oil and works with and next to the linseed oil. All other materials of this liquid lino are the same as the ones of the linoleum made in a factory.

All known and proven characteristics of classic linoleum are now being improved with a labor friendly installation (approx. 15 kg), no joints, but seamless, no cutting losses, no maximum roll lengths, a high flexural strength and a high chemical resistance. Furthermore is the product hardening without external warmth and within hours.

The new linoleum was launched in the Netherlands in the beginning of 2016 and is branded:
