Epoxy Terrazzo Flooring
Epoxy Terrazzo Installation Process
The First step in Epoxy Terrazzo installation is to do Surface Preparation, Then We Install the divider Strip. We mix the two-component epoxy resin with the desired decorative aggregate and then pour the material onto the slab. If different colors of terrazzo mix are used, the sections are separated by divider strips made of zinc, brass, or other materials. The dividers not only delineate the design, they also are used at control and expansion joints in the concrete slab to help prevent the terrazzo topping from cracking due to joint movement. Thin and flexible, the divider strips can be bent by hand on the jobsite or reshaped in the factory into intricate designs. It’s usually affixed to the slab with an epoxy adhesive
We trowel the epoxy mixture to the top of the strips and then allow it to cure overnight . The following day, we mechanically grind and polish the surface using progressively finer-grit abrasives to reveal the natural beauty of the decorative aggregate. The final step is to apply a sealer, which makes the surface more resistant to water, chemicals, oil, grease, acids, and solvents.
Terrazzo Floors is suitable for , Commercial Buildings, Schools, Business, Schools, Grocery Stores, Airport, and many others surfaces, and again the colors are vast and durable. The color and design possibilities with epoxy terrazzo are limitless, allowing the creation of elaborate works of floor art.
The epoxy resin cures overnight and can be polished the next day, permitting faster project turnaround. Traditional terrazzo may require several days of curing before polishing can begin. In addition to faster curing and finishing time, epoxy terrazzo is also lighter in weight ,than thicker cement-based terrazzos. This makes the material more suitable for multistory use.
