Incombustible Linoleum. [Newspaper Article] — Cobram Courier — 28 May 1914
Incombustible Linoleum. ~r The manufacture of incombustible linoleum, or, to speak more accu rately, of linoleum that burns with difficulty, has been it goal long aimed nt by linoleum factories. The at tempts previously mado have been based on tho plan of adding incorn i bustible matter, such us asbestos or ammonium salts, to the mass , during* Uie&lt; procoss of fabrication. Far more promising is a new scheme, described in "Technischo Monnishcfte," in which magnesium carbonato is added to thu mass. All the carbonates have the property of giving o/T carbon dioxide when heated nt high temperatures. This, as is well known, is a veiy heavy gas, which does not rise, but creeps along the floor. For this reason in case of a Tire it would tend to cut o;T the. supply of air from the lino« leum. Magnesium carbonate is cho sen because it breaks up at lower temperatures than any other car bonate. The principal involved is, of course, one commonly used in the manufacture of chemical /ir...
