OK Bob here is the scoop, we use to use an epoxy ( S-200 ) under the seams, but Armstrong no longer recommends this. What you need to do is clean any dirt out of the area of concern, get a good linoleum adhesive and put glue under the seam, heat and roll the seam area using a seam roller and a hair dryer, after the seam has stayed in place clean it with mineral spirits ( don't use too much ), if your floor has a gloss finish you will need to get a Armstrong S-595 seam sealer kit, apply seam sealer and let cure for 24hrs. If this sounds like too much go to a specialized flooring store and have them do it for you, odds are it would not be much more to have it done by a professional.
