Marmoleum from Mannington?

Looking for some flooring information. Stopped by a flooring dealership today and asked if they carried Marmoleum. They showed me a product from Mannington: LVT. They said it was this correct. There was nothing on the samples to indicate it was Marmoleum. Any thoughts? Looking to install in our "74" Tradewind. Thanks!

I just Googled Mannington LVT and it looks to be a vinyl floor tile (LTV for Luxury Vinyl Tile). Marmoleum is a different product.

Marmoleum is a trade name, like Kleenex or Xerox. Ask for linoleum instead, that is real linoleum. Many people call all sheet floor covering linoleum, but true linoleum is a different product, of which Marmoleum is one.

Marmoleum is made by Forbo. When we were shopping for linoleum, I think one dealer showed us a similar linoleum made by another company that may have been Manington.

Nope, not Mannington.

The two most readily available manufacturers for "real linoleum" are Forbo & Armstrong. As others have mentioned, "Marmoleum" is Forbo's trade name for their linoleum. A lot of folks used the term linoleum generically for sheet vinyl. I think this is because sheet vinyl replaced linoleum as the "new & improved" flooring in the late 50's when the "plastic revolution" started. It was offered in more vibrant colors and patterns - think the 60's.

Between Forbo & Armstrong's linoleums, they are pretty much the same except, Forbo offers many more colors & patterns. They are also the oldest manufacturer of linoleum - Armstrong company is the new kid on the block when it comes to linoleum.
