Terrazzo is a composition material that is poured in place. It consists of marble chips, colored glass, or granite and is made with either a cement or epoxy binder. It is poured, cured, then ground and polished. Terrazzo does not wear out or need to be replaced every few years, and it offers the beauty and the elegance of its marble and granite cousins at one-third the cost.
Terrazzo is easy to clean and maintain because of its smooth seamless application. This makes it ideal for places where sanitary conditions are a must. It is also a good choice for restoration and renovation of buildings through the use of 1/2″ monolithic cement terrazzo and the low weight 3/8″ thin-set epoxy terrazzo systems.
