Epoxy.com Epoxy Terrazzo

100% Solids Epoxy Terrazzo Binder

DESCRIPTION

Please note:  Epoxy Terrazzo is not for the do-it-yourselfer or non-epoxy terrazzo contractor.  It takes many years of practice to develop the necessary skills to grind Terrazzo.  If your primary business is NOT terrazzo installation, you cannot successfully install this material.  Instead you should use Epoxy.com Chip Flooring.

Epoxy.com  EPOXY TERRAZZO is a 100% solids, two component epoxy resin system containing colored pigments and mixed with a wide selection of decorative aggregates. Epoxy.com  EPOXY TERRAZZO is trowel applied to a 1/4" to 3/8" nominal thickness to provide an attractive terrazzo finish. Epoxy.com  Epoxy Terrazzo provides outstanding durability and wear resulting in the lowest life cycle costing of any flooring system available. Epoxy.com™ EPOXY TERRAZZO does not support bacterial growth and is also available in a conductive form to eliminate static electricity.
