Durability

Stone is a hard material that is naturally shock-absorbent. Unfortunately, in large sheets or sections it can become brittle, especially following exposure to elemental forces and human weathering. Terrazzo’s structural characteristics, however, combine stone’s benefits with the elasticity of softer, long-lasting materials like epoxies, polyacrylates and resins. Terrazzo’s hybrid approach to protecting floors and feet has many enticing results. While forward-thinking aesthetic appeal, comfort and ease of maintenance are certainly among its positive features, Terrazzo’s endurance is what really draws people in. Like Roman roads of ancient, modern terrazzo relies on an interchangeable mix of varying types of substances. Regardless of your needs, a terrazzo can be made using components that will hold up. This affords modern architects and builders design options that would otherwise be completely inaccessible. In most cases, glass and other fine materials are wholly unwelcome in floors that might take some foot traffic. In terrazzo coatings, even fragile items such as beautiful recycled glass take part in amazing mosaic-like floor treatments. It’s simple to substitute synthetics or granite aggregates that will increase strength or add chemical resistance. Most terrazzo coatings are non-reactive. Labs and industrial centers constantly try to improve the visual feel of their work spaces, and terrazzo is an inexpensive, mar-resistant canvas. Remember, durability isn’t only a result of material choice. The application in which a material is used is just as critical as how it’s put together and Terrazzo is designed to abide.
