Terrazzo is a type of flooring made of small pieces of rocks like marble or granite. They are set in concrete and then polished to make a smooth surface. Terrazzo comprises two main types of materials, or “matrices.” They are cement and epoxy resin. Today, there are different ways to install terrazzo systems. Let’s look more closely at the different types of terrazzo systems that are on the market today.
Types Of Terrazzo Flooring
- Terrazzo Sand Cushion
This system is composed using a half-inch cement matrix topping. It is made up of a layer of sand, a layer of insulation, a wire reinforcement, and an underbed. It needs a 2.5- or 3-inch-deep depression in the slab.
- Bonded Terrazzo
This system comprises a cement matrix topping that is half an inch thick—a sand-and-cement under-bed sticks to the concrete slab. On top of that, the terrazzo is poured. It needs 1.75 inches to be taken off the concrete slab.
- Monolithic Terrazzo
This system comprises a cement matrix topping that is half an inch thick. It consists solely of the bonding agent and the terrazzo topping.
- Rustic Terrazzo
This system comprises a textured cement matrix topping that is not ground. This system can be used with both bonded and monolithic systems. It needs a two-inch-deep depression. The texture of its surface sorts it.
- Terrazzo Thin-Set Epoxy
This system is made up of a resin-based matrix topping that is 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch thick. Aside from marble, it can be made with glass, synthetic, or granite aggregates. This system is known for having bright colors and lasting a long.
Which System For Terrazzo Should You Pick?
So, which matrix and system do you need? Well, it depends on what you’re doing. Is your project a remodel or a brand-new building? If it’s a remodel, was the terrazzo flooring there before? What sort? What would the slab look like if there was no terrazzo? These are just a few questions you’ll need to answer to determine which system will work best for you. Our experts will help you to choose the best for you.
Terrazzo Flooring By Epoxy Floorings Dubai Will Save You Time And Money
You can save money and time by pouring terrazzo over most surfaces instead of tearing up a floor and pouring a new concrete slab. It can be poured right on top of a surface already there as long as the surface underneath is strong and stable. Only when a tile is loose or broken, or the floor is made of a soft material like carpet, vinyl, or VCT, should a terrazzo overlay not be poured over it. It is quick and easy to pour epoxy terrazzo over an existing floor. Our experienced installers can use a trowel to spread the material one day, wait for it to harden overnight, and then polish it the next day. By choosing Epoxy Floorings Dubai, you can save money on building costs and make room in your budget for a terrazzo floor that will last as long as the building itself.
