(tuh-raz-oh)

Noun
A mosaic flooring or paving consisting of small pieces of marble, glass, or granite set in mortar or epoxy and given a high polish.

Terrazzo (tuh-raz-oh) is a composite material, poured in place or precast, used for floor and wall treatments. Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor and wall treatments. It consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable material, poured with a cementitious binder (for chemical binding), polymeric (for physical binding), or a combination of both. Once the terrazzo has hardened, it is ground down to expose the interior of the marble chips among the colored matrix.

Terrazzo varies according to its matrices, aggregate, substructure, appearance, and texture. Depending on the existing floor, owner preferences or architectural design, there are many suitable options available that will yield a beautiful flooring system.

An extremely versatile material, terrazzo is probably the most widely used of all hard flooring, particularly in heavily trafficked areas. It is found in shopping malls, airports, railway and underground stations, hospitals and supermarkets.

What does terrazzo consist of?

In addition to marble chips, other materials may be used to complement the terrazzo floor. Glass, metals or mother-of-pearl may be used to create an attractive and unique floor surface. Different sized chips may be used together to create an exciting look.

These aggregates are mixed into a matrix that consists of portland cement, epoxy resin, or some other bonding agent.
