Corques Liquid Lino (CLL)

CLL - a liquid applied linoleum creating a resilient floor covering

CLL Starts a Revolution

Introducing Corques Liquid Lino® (CLL)

Manufactured in The Netherlands by Duracryl International, CLL is a new liquid poured version of linoleum which is applied seamlessly on site.   The 150 year old concept of factory manufactured linoleum in rolls and tiles has now been perfected to provide superior benefits to several industries.

Corques Liquid Lino® is a blend of pure natural materials which are cork, vegetable oil, linseed oil, wood flour, limestone and natural color pigments.  On site, CLL is poured directly onto the subfloor, where it sets overnight to create a seamless durable and natural looking resilient floor.

With 54 standard color choices, CLL provides a color freedom that can be personalized to your environment.

Medical

Medical facilities face a number of challenges when it comes to their flooring needs.  CLL provides a seamless solution that can be poured directly over many existing medical floor coverings.  CLL is an all natural antimicrobial system which is non-toxic during and after install.  We can also provide multiple colors including directional lines within the floor that is seamless.

Another issue medical facilities face is the downtime it normally requires to install new flooring by having to shut down a large area due to a harsh chemical smell, toxic dust particles floating beyond the install area and time required for the new floor to be installed.  With CLL, this is simply not the case.  There is no toxic smell, dust particles or debris created with a CLL install.  The time required would be 2.5 days including prep time for existing flooring.

Along with the sustainability and low maintenance, we can install a thin pad under the CLL which gives a better anti-fatigue benefit for staff that stand in certain areas for a long period of time such as a nurse’s station or in a surgery room.  The pad also increases noise reduction.

The finished product is a durable resilient floor that can be easily repaired within minutes back to its seamless state.

Airports

Airports set the standard for high traffic among all facilities on our planet.  Durable resilient flooring is a must because they take a beating.  CLL’s ability to be long lasting with very low maintenance and requiring no harsh chemicals is a top set of benefits for an airport.

CLL also has another very unique benefit… advertising.  Advertising can be installed under our DuraShield clear coat for a seamless durable way to provide sponsored areas to help offset the overall cost of the floors themselves.  Want to trade out the sponsors every 6 months?  No problem.  We can send our install team back in to change out your advertising.

Fast install time is a must in a facility this busy.  We can install CLL at a pace of 10,000 sq. ft. per day with a 5 day minimum.  Multiple colors can also be achieved with one added day.  With 54 stock colors, a wide range of design options can be achieved.  We can even provide custom colors for large installs. 

Slip resistance is another key benefit for decreased liability for public safety.  Our standard CLL comes with a rating of R9.  R11 can be achieved upon special request.

Retail

Low maintenance and the ability to have multiple colors to separate retail departments are two of the top benefits for retail stores.  By adding logos in the floor from sponsors can increase brand awareness and sales.  

Due to the excellent properties in wear and tear, chemical and scratch resistance of the Corques resilient floors are minimal maintenance costs.  Labor costs to maintain CLL are minimal and can pay for the total cost within 5 years depending upon your labor rates and supplies used.  No need to use harsh chemicals for cleaning since CLL should be cleaned with water and a mild soap. 

With different DuraShield® wear layers, custom slip resistance properties can be achieved.  This without sacrificing the cleanability of the floor.  Areas with different slip resistances can be combined seamlessly in one area.

Also, by simply installing a seamless advertisement in the floor you can offset the cost for most or even all of the Corques Liquid Lino installed in a retail setting.  Grocery stores and big box retailers can also highlight specific areas without degrading the advertisement on the floor.  You no longer have to deal with the advertisement peeling up or being scratched by buffing machines or everyday wear and tear.

Restaurants

While durability and maintenance can be big benefits for restaurants, the non-slip and anti-fatigue properties can also be no-brainers.

With different DuraShield® wear layers, custom slip resistance properties can be achieved for added public safety.  This without sacrificing the cleanability of the floor.  Areas with different slip resistances can be combined seamlessly in one area.  Our standard Corques Liquid Lino® floor comes with a rating of R9.  R11 can be achieved upon special request.

Standing behind the bar making drinks for customers can be very hard on the bartender’s feet and legs.  CLL can be poured directly over our InstaLay padding for an anti-fatigue affect.  

Another benefit for adding the InstaLay padding to your CLL floor is that it makes the floor technically a “floating floor” which is not a building fixture.  This creates additional tax depreciation benefits for the CLL floors installed.  Of course, you will need to consult with your tax preparer to the specific ways to take advantage of this added tax benefit.

CLL’s resistance to staining, abrasions, small scratches, indentations, and cracking make it ideal for any restaurant dining and bar areas.  Light food prep areas are also a good area.

Education

The one place where we don’t want harsh chemicals used for cleaning floors is our schools.  With all of the toxins children are exposed to on a daily basis, our schools should be a place where they can feel safe.  We are proud to say the Corques Liquid Lino is free of heavy metals, PVC, plasticizers, formaldehyde, chlorine and VOC’s.

Even during install, CLL has no chemical odor or release of toxins in the air since it is made form all natural materials.  When cleaning a CLL floor, no harsh chemicals need to be used. 

When children get sick, germs can spread fast.  The antimicrobial materials that make up CLL make it hygienic so there is no worry of unwanted microbes.  Even on rainy days where children are tracking in everything from outside, CLL floors are water tight for easy clean up.

Due to the liquid installation of CLL, repairs of damaged spots can be done quickly and easily, repaired spots are nearly invisible.  After decades of intensive use or if a design change is needed, Corques Liquid Lino floors can be resurfaced quickly and inexpensively.  There is no need to remove the CLL floor.  All design changes can be made on top with our DuraShield® coating.
