Question linoleum thickness

We're buying Armstrong sheet linoleum for our kitchen and they want to know what thickness we want...apparently there are three choices, including less than 2 mm, 2.5 mm, and more than 3 mm.

Anyone have any ideas on what a standard residential linoleum thickness would be? Pro/cons on paying for the thicker?

The thickness of the wear layer is critical to the performance of vinyl floor covering. Thickness is usually measured in mils. The thicker the wear layer the better. Thicker wear layers stay looking new longer, resist staining, scratching, tearing, gouging, and indentations. Higher grade vinyl will have better warranties such as mildew and asphalt tracking.

Thanks for the reply. I actually called Armstrong's technical help line. Suprisingl, they told me that the 2mm linoleum Marmorette product was made specifically for residential applications and anything thicker would be throwing money away.
