Linoleum: a hard-wearing, long-lasting flooring solution
Tarkett linoleum: Modern performances
How durable is linoleum?
Discover the superb durability of our xf²™ finish, with excellent resistance to mechanical wear and stains, making it ideal for demanding environments.
Exclusive xf² surface treatment for excellent durability
- The micro-reinforced polyurethane UV treatment seals and hardens the surface to make it more resistant to dirt and daily wear and tear.
- No need for polishing, stripping or polymer waxing during the product’s lifetime (provided that soil barriers are in place, furniture legs have appropriate protection, and regular maintenance and daily inspections are performed).
- Internal and external tests prove its superior resistance to abrasion and chemicals compared to typical competitor products on the market. Resistance to chemicals remains higher than competitors even after the abrasion test performed to simulate the use of the protective layer due to traffic.
- The improved gloss level provides a more refined matt appearance and enhances the authentic, natural feeling.
The traditional acrylic, non-PU, factory applied finish, ready to walk on. To be used when a non-PU surface protection is required. Now with improved durability against abrasion, it offers customers robuster protection and the option to apply an on-site treatment after installation or over time.
Naturally inhibiting bacterial growth
Tarkett lino has naturally anti-bacterial properties against the most common bacteria, such as E. coli and MRSA.
This is a particularly important feature in environments where good hygiene is essential such as schools and hospitals.
Linoleum floors for specific applications
We offer different versions of linoleum that are specially designed for specific applications in commercial spaces.
Acoustic floors offer both excellent impact sound insulation, sound absorption and good resistance to indentation. They also provide extra comfort underfoot, a key well-being factor in many environments such as educational facilities and hospitals.

Simplifying cleaning and maintenance
The linoleum’s xf²™ surface treatment means that polishing, stripping and polymer waxing is not necessary during the product’s lifetime (provided that soil barriers are in place, furniture legs have appropriate protection, and regular maintenance and daily inspections are performed). This means cleaning and maintenance become less frequent and less intense, thus reducing water, energy and detergent consumption for a reduced environmental footprint.
xf²™ linoleum’s lower life cycle cost
The initial investment and installation costs normally account for just a small proportion of a flooring’s total life cycle cost. The rest is cleaning and maintenance. As xf²™ linoleum requires no surface treatment after installation and no wax or polish over its lifetime, the total life cycle cost is significantly lower. Compared with other treated linoleum flooring, payback on the extra investment can be achieved within two years.
