Forbo Marmoleum Composition Tile (MCT)

100% natural linoleum 2.0 mm tile in 25 designer colors

Forbo Marmoleum Composition Tile (MCT) offers a competitively-priced, safe and sustainable alternative to vinyl, VCT or laminate tile flooring. It’s a chemical-free eco-friendly flooring made from rapidly renewable and bio-based materials.

Marmoleum is called the 40-year linoleum because it’s highly durable and long-lasting in both residential and commercial applications. Its through-body color hides scratches and is easily reparable. The TopShield finish also protects the surface making it easy to maintain with a damp mop.

Marmoleum MCT comes in 25 colors from natural to bright. This makes it a beautiful green flooring choice for kitchens, rec rooms, bedrooms, living rooms, basements and offices.

The sustainability of Marmoleum from “field to field” (flax field to compost pile) is the most transparent and sustainable of any flooring material. As such, Marmoleum carries more environmental certifications that are third-party, independent and LCA-based (life cycle assessment of multiple attributes), than any other flooring material. Marmoleum has, through clear third-party, publicly disclosed, verifiable documentation, the lowest environmental footprint of any manufactured flooring material. Sustainability has been integrated into every step of the process, from supply chain, through manufacturing, to installation and use, and finally end of life.

Why we like it

Marmoleum has been our most popular green flooring for the past 12 years for all the right reasons! Out of all the green flooring we carry, we give it our highest rating for performance, eco-friendliness, carbon footprint and sustainability. MCT is reasonably priced and relatively easy to install compared with sheet goods. There are infinite color combinations that make for a seriously fun floor.
