DEFINITION: Terrazzo is a type of composite material that is commonly used for flooring and wall cladding. It is composed of a mixture of marble or other natural stone chips, glass, and/or other aggregates that are embedded in a cement or epoxy matrix. The surface is then polished to create a smooth and durable finish.
Terrazzo is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, and can be customized to suit specific design requirements. It is a highly durable and long-lasting material, making it ideal for use in high-traffic areas such as commercial buildings, airports, and schools. It is also relatively low maintenance, requiring periodic sealing and regular cleaning to maintain its appearance. Terrazzo can be used for both indoor and outdoor applications, and is considered an environmentally-friendly option due to its use of recycled materials.
