What is Terrazzo?

Terrazzo has been around since the 16th-century. Originating in Italy, terrazzo is the product of quarry workers using marble chips and leftovers to decorate their own home. But despite its humble beginnings, it soon became a far more high-end product thanks to its popularity in Venice, where it became known as Venetian terrazzo.

These days this vibrant, characterful material is created by forcing marble segments and Portland cement binders together under huge presses, to create resin terrazzo and cement terrazzo, using specialized resins to make strong, durable, and stylish tiles.

FLOORING

Cement Terrazzo

Cementitious terrazzo flooring is the setting of the aggregates in cement. In comparison with epoxy terrazzo flooring, cementitious terrazzo is considerably thicker and heavier making it the ideal choice in some applications. Cementitious terrazzo flooring offers a wide range of elaborate designs that feature various color schemes and Earth tones. This type of terrazzo is significantly thicker and can withstand considerable impact. Cementitious terrazzo is durable and resilient, lasting many years with minimal maintenance.

Epoxy resin Terrazzo

Epoxy terrazzo is composed of a mix of epoxy and aggregates bound in a thin-set system. An unlimited array of colors along with shimmering pieces of glass, marble, or granite combine to a luxurious and smooth finish. The unlimited range of colors and intricate patterns provides infinite design capabilities.   Epoxy terrazzo has the advantage of speed of curing. You can expect the curing process to finish overnight. Polishing can be performed the very next day, accelerating the turnaround time of any project. For this reason alone, many commercial and institutional establishments choose epoxy terrazzo.

Hybrid Terrazzo

Hybrid flooring is made of a decorative, textured print layer that is sandwiched between a protective top coating and a rigid, waterproof core board.
The hybrid is very stable & as long as there is minimal settlement it is relatively crack free.
