DLW Linoleum is a long-lasting floor covering made from renewable raw materials whose environmental impact is so low that it can hardly be reduced further. In view of the scientific demands for protecting the environment, there is a hardly a product out there that meets this criteria!

Kind on resources
The raw materials for DLW Linoleum are 98 percent organic or mineral-based, with naturally renewable materials accounting for 80 percent. DLW Linoleum is produced entirely without crude oil.

Easy on the environment
As linoleum largely consists of renewable raw materials, it is more or less CO2-neutral over its entire life cycle. It is manufactured using a traditional formula without plasticisers, chlorine or heavy metals. The linoleum waste occurring during production is recycled during manufacture.

With linseed oil Armstrong is using a raw material of food-grade quality. All other raw materials are safe to health and even comply with the stringent requirements of the European Toy Safety standard (EN 71).

DLW Linoleum has been awarded the following environmental labels: Blue Angel, Scandinavian Swan Label, Austrian Environment Certificate, BRE Global Limited and the LEED Certificate. The production plant at Delmenhorst has been awarded the EC ecological audit and the EMAS environmental certificate. The facility is regularly inspected by the organisation GUT Zertifizierungsgesellschaft für Managementsysteme and environmental experts.

Armstrong is an active partner in the DGNB, the German Association for Sustainable Construction and is a member of ERFMI, the European Resilient Flooring Manufacturers’ Institute.

It has been confirmed by the German Federal Environment Agency: DLW Linoleum releases so few organic substances into the indoor air that its emission value falls well below the threshold level. According to AgBB-Evaluation (Committee for sanitary assessment of construction products) all DLW Floorings achieved the limit value of indoor air pollution.
