Country of Manufacture: Germany
Marmoleum Textura Slate tiles are ecologically-produced, bio-based, natural linoleum that comes in approx.sizes of 10" by 20" (9.8 x 19.7 inch tiles, actual size 25 x 50 cm) and 20" by 20" (19.7 x 19.7 inches, actual size 50 x 50 cm).
The tiles are 2.5 mm thick (approximately .1 inches) and are sold by carton with 53.82 square feet per carton.
Due to the way its made, don't be surprised if your tiles have a yellowish tint on it when it's delivered. This is oxidized linseed oil, which can color the surface in the final stage of manufacturing. The tint will disappear (usually within 24 hours) as soon as your floor is exposed to the light. Also, because linoleum is a natural product, there may be slight color and structural differences between production batches, samples, and the delivered goods.
Adhesive: Use Forbo T 940, Forbo Sustain 885m or Forbo Sustain 1195 adhesives. Use a 1/16" x 1/16" x 1/16" square notch trowel. Spread Rate: Approximately 125 square feet/gallon.
