Cement is the traditional material used for terrazzo, and in the EU, the standards of the material are often determined around this type of terrazzo.
Standard Terrazzo ingredients:
– approx.10-15% white cement, used as a binder;
– mixed with white Carrara powder, aka Calcium Carbonate.
It is a precast material composed of marble chippings bonded together with special resins and pigments.
– 93% marble chipping
– 5-7% (or under) resin binder.

Stone chips and other aggregates must go through an additional step – drying – before getting mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
COLOUR/ CHIP SIZE/ APPEARANCE
Higher definition of the marble chips and natural colours.
All standard-sized chips and up to 40 mm.
Some types of marble chips (mainly Carrara and other white or off-white marbles) may have a slight halo effect.
All standard-sized chips. Plus, can hold chips of up to 80 mm.
Standard sizes of cement terrazzo block:
253 x 142 x 70 cm
305 x 124 x 84 cm.
Standard size resin agglomerate block:
305 x 124 x 84 cm.
Terrazzo blocks are cut into slabs of:
253 x 142 cm, thickness 2 cm, 3 cm and thicker*
305 x 124 cm, thickness 2 cm, 3 cm and thicker*
Blocks are cut into slabs of:
183 x 123 cm, thickness 1.2 cm, 2 cm, 3 cm and thicker*
305 x 124 cm, thickness 1.2 cm, 2 cm, 3 cm and thicker*
Terrazzo slabs are cut into standard tiles of:
Thickness: 2 cm
Thickness: 3 cm.
Standard floor tiles:
30 x 30 cm
40 x 40 cm
50 x 30 cm
60 x 30 cm
60 x 40 cm
60 x 60 cm.
Thickness 1.2 cm.
Larger format tiles are available upon request.
Recommended thickness for larger tiles: 2 cm.
The tiles are thinner, thus, lighter in weight than terrazzo cement.
Both materials are suitable for a multitude of applications: floors, stairs, sills, wall-claddings and countertops.
SB and REG material ranges are suitable for outdoor application*.
