Forbo is no stranger to offering nature-friendly products. With Forbo Desktop, the manufacturer is once again proving not only its expertise but also its talent for innovation. This door panel is made of natural materials: it is manufactured from finely ground linoleum granules. These consist of oxidised linseed oil and natural pine rosin, to which wood flour and colour pigments are added. Forbo Desktop is designed using a calendering process that presses the material onto an impregnated paper base. It is then finished with a water-based, cross-linked acrylic treatment that protects the surface while maintaining the flexibility and feel of linoleum. This allows you to create a healthy environment in your home!
Your door panel has many advantages that make it a high-quality product. First of all, the natural composition of the product. Forbo Desktop linoleum offers a finishing touch to your furniture such as desks, chairs, stools, cupboards and doors. Thanks to the flexibility of linoleum, your product can be applied to the surface of any structure. You can then enjoy the elegance and durability of your Forbo Desktop with complete peace of mind. Table linoleum offers a warm and comfortable feel. This will make your decoration unique, with a soft atmosphere. In addition, the natural properties of the Forbo Desktop give it a beautiful patina effect over time.
Forbo Desktop is available in 1.83 m wide rolls and is 2 mm thick. This means that your door and furniture covering will protect your furniture effectively. It is highly resistant to permanent indentation (< 0.20 mm), so you can place various objects on the surface without damaging the linoleum. However, it is recommended to use undercuts and under-glasses under flowerpots, vases or glasses, in order to protect your linoleum table as much as possible.
Forbo Desktop is highly resistant to scratches and stains. However, beware of sharp objects that could cause scratches on the surface. Stains (ink, coffee, tea, red wine, etc.) should be removed immediately so as not to leave any traces. Due to its composition based on natural raw materials and its surface treatment, Forbo Desktop has antistatic properties. This gives it a real advantage over other furniture finishes because the surface actively resists the build-up of static charges. This quality prevents dust and dirt from settling and keeps the material unstained, hygienic and clean.
In addition, Forbo natural linoleum offers a delicate, warm and pleasant finish, a material that leaves no residual fingerprints and is easy to clean! You will not be outdone by the colours. They are durable and retain their appearance for many years. As linoleum is a natural material, a colour change can be observed in the first few days. This is due to the natural oxidation of the linseed oil in contact with UV light.
As the installation of this product is technically demanding, it is recommended to call in a professional installer. This type of product must be glued. Your linoleum door and furniture coverings are treated in the same way as wood. Professional installers will have no problem installing this material, particularly because of its flexibility.
Your Forbo furniture linoleum is supplied in rolls and can be laid horizontally or vertically, as well as on curved surfaces. Your linoleum is also flexible enough to cover corners and achieve a perfect finish. Good to know: this product folds much more easily lengthways than widthways.
Your Forbo Desktop can easily be installed on the most common substrates such as MDF, particleboard and plywood as well as on composite materials. You will need to ensure that your surface is free of irregularities, which would preclude a smooth, flat finish.
For installation on a curved surface, please note that the minimum bending diameter of your door panel is 5 cm. Finally, it should be noted that Forbo Desktop can be installed both manually and industrially. For more information about the installation of your product, please refer to the installation instructions provided by the manufacturer.
Just as charcoal black and charcoal grey remain the classic colours preferred by designers, the new Forbo furniture linoleum collection now offers a range of contemporary and modern colours that complement current interior design trends. You'll love the vibrant shades of your Forbo Desktop Linoleum: green, red, orange, blue, and turquoise, you're sure to find something to suit you! Ash, cream or pastel shades will add a touch of softness to your decor.
With its matt surface, your door and furniture trim is ideal for creating a welcoming, elegant and warm space.
To maintain the natural shine of Forbo Desktop, it is important to maintain it properly.
After installation: Clean all traces of glue and/or fingerprints with a clean, damp cloth. If necessary, use a neutral detergent.
Regularly: Clean with a damp cloth, with or without a neutral detergent. As mentioned above, clean any stains immediately.
Occasionally: To brighten up your Forbo Desktop, apply a 5% neutral pH detergent solution in water. Allow the product to work for 10 minutes and then gently scrub the surface with a soft bristle brush. Collect the dirty water before rinsing with clean water and allowing the surface to dry. Apply a thin film of undiluted TAWIP Phenix Maintenance. Finally, polish vigorously with a clean cotton cloth.
