  • WHAT MAKES TERRAZZO SUCH A GREAT FLOORING SYSTEM
  • -Terrazzo flooring has a long and rich history that dates back over 1500 years.-Terrazzo, from the Italian word for Terraces, is one of the original recycled products-created centuries ago by Venetian workers utilizing the waste chips from slab marble processing.-In the 18th century the trade was brought to the USA-Originally terrazzo was finished by hand-Galeras. They are hand held tools used for finishing and polishing terrazzo, a stone attached to a wooden handle held in place with a metal clip.-Early divider strips were made of wood and marble cubes. Later divider strips were made of zinc, brass, aluminum, and due to war world II plastic was introduced.-By 1924 electric grinding machines were introduced-Epoxy was introduced approximately 50 years ago and now makes up about 75 to 80% of the US market.
  • Sand Cushion Terrazzo:Description: A cement matrix topping underbed with wire reinforcing, isolation sheet, and sand layer system for interior floor use. This is the best cement system.Advantages: Due to the underbed's depth, wire mesh reinforcing, isolation sheeting and sand layer it will absorb minor substrate defects and prevent mirroring to the surface.Terrazzo bonded to concrete:Description: A cement matrix and underbed system for interior and exterior areas where conditions require 1.25" to 1.75" inches of recessed depth to be filled in addition to the .5" terrazzo topping.Advantages: With sand-cement underbed it has less dependence on the concrete slab for flatness when compared to monolithic.Monolithic Terrazzo:Description:This 1/2" thick cement matrix veneer placed upon a provided concrete slab is dependent on the concrete quality for flatness and crack prevention. On grade or below grade only.Advantages: Fast installation and the most economical price make it ideal where time and budget are critical but where the beauty, low maintenance and the performance of terrazzo is desired.Polyacrylate Terrazzo:Description: A nominal 3/8" think polymer modified cement matrix veneer placed upon a provided level concrete slab. Polymer provides strength to allow for thinner applications of cementitious systems. Advantages: Fast installation and moderate price range make it ideal to replace vinyl or carpet without depth transition difficulties; also good to use in areas subject to moisture vapor transmission where Epoxy terrazzo or other non-breathing floors will not adhere.
  • There are several different types of Terrazzo. We are going to start with Sand Cushion.
  • -Sand Cushion is cement matrix topping underbed with wire reinforcing, isolation sheet, and sand layer system for interior floor use.-This is the best cement based system and excellent choice for new construction.-Requires 3” Depressed Slab-Does not bond to structural slab-Typical Panel: 4’ x 4’-The advantages: due to the underbed’s depth, wire mesh reinforcing and sand layer, it will absorb minor substrate defects and prevent mirroring to the surface. -It’s approximate weight is 25-30 lbs. PSF. -The position of divider strips is essential to performance, serving a dual function: a control for anticipated contraction and an aesthetic enhancement in separating colors. 5 feet or less on centers. Architects should design structural inset expansion plates between areas where major movement is anticipated.
  • Then you have Thin-set.
  • Advantages: Unlimited matrix colors, color control, resiliency, chemical resistance and tensile-compressive strengths not found in cement based systems. Excellent for multi-colored patterns and designs. Light weight and flexibility make it ideal for multi-story use. It has the lowest maintenance cost due to non-absorbency. In sanitary areas can be installed with minimal dividers providing seamless characteristics. When uses in conjunction with a flexible membrane as a specified extra, it can absorb some horizontal concrete crack or control joint movement. It also has the quickest pour to grind installation time. Can also be used over properly installed and prepared plywood. Glass and other decorative aggregates increased costs.
  • -A nominal ¼” or 3/8” thick resin matrix veneer placed upon a flat concrete slab; also can be specified with glass, synthetic, or granite aggregates in lieu of marble to provide brilliant colors or chemical resistance. -Epoxy terrazzo has the greatest tensile, compressive, and flexural strength of any system.

  • Follow ICRI Guideline No. 03732, Selecting and Specifying Concrete Surface Preparation for Coatings, Sealers, and Polymer OverlaysSurface preparation requirement - remove laitance and obtain a uniform surface texture resembling ICRI CSP # 4-5 comparators. Mechanical bond is important!
  • GrinderNeedle GunScarifierBlast Track
  • Protection of flooring from other trades: Light Traffic: Brown craft paper works well (does not pose a risk for entrapping moisture) Heavy traffic (including lifts): Masonite or plywood with plastic sheeting underneath. Do not place masonite directly on resin floor material or discoloration may occur. Do not entrap moisture beneath the plastic or a white haze may form which can be difficult or impossible to remove, requiring a reapplication of a topcoat at the very least.
  • Floor buffing pic - http://www.cleaning4london.co.uk/floor_buffing_polish_london.html
  • First question is how much and first assumption is that epoxy terrazzo is very expensive. For these projects, that was probably true.
  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental DesignThis rating system encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of tools and performance criteria•Most reasonably well designed buildings can meet the requirements for basic certification (26‐32 points) at little or no additional cost.•Achieving certification at the Gold level (39‐51 points) or Platinum level (52‐69 points) will require a good deal of creativity and usually a cost premium.
  • Epoxy Terrazzo contributes to LEED credits in the following areas:Recycled materials within the Epoxy Terrazzo Systems can help contribute to the 10% or up to 20% recycled material costs based on the total value of the material for the project. Such as recycled aggregates, glass aggregates or glass filler.To meet the Regional materials credit for new construction, the costs of products manufactured or extracted within 500 miles must total a minimum of 10%-20% of the projects material costs. Such as sand, aggregates, and resins.Terrazzo floors typically last the life of the structure. If restored and refinished it can be used to assist towards 40% or 60% reuse for the Building Reuse Credit.Reclamation of waste from the construction process, as in glass or steel, can also be used for credit.When terrazzo is used extensively, an innovative design credit can be obtained if you show that the life cycle cost of epoxy terrazzo is lower than that of other flooring materials.Overall, on typical projects, terrazzo can realistically contribute to five LEED credits. On a case by case scenario, terrazzo may also be able to contribute for a total of 8 points.RECYCLED CONTENTTo meet the criteria for Credit 4.1 Recycled Content under the LEED rating system for new construction (version 2.2), use materials with recycled content such that the sum of post‐consumer recycled content plus one‐half of the pre‐consumer content constitutes at least 10 percent (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project.•A second credit, Credit 4.2, may be obtained if a total of the recycled content is at least 20 percent (based on cost) of the total value of the materials in the project.REGIONAL MATERIALS•To meet the criteria for Credit 5.1 Regional Materials under the LEED rating system for new construction (version 2.2), use building materials or products that have been extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as manufactured, within 500 miles of the project site for a minimum of 10 percent (based on cost) of the total materials value..•A second credit, Credit 5.2, may be obtained if the total value of the regional materials is at least 20 percent of the total value of the materials in the project.•Many commodity products, such as sand and other aggregates, include regional materials.In certain markets, cement and resins may be regionally produced.Aggregates and marble chips may be regional products.REDUCE CONSTRUCTION WASTE•To meet the criteria for MR Credit 2.1 Construction Waste Management under the LEED rating system for new construction (version 2.2), recycle or salvage at least 50 percent of non‐hazardous construction and demolition debris. Develop and implement a construction waste management plan that, at a minimum, identifies the materials to be diverted from disposal and whether the materials will be sorted on‐site or co‐mingled. •A second credit, MR Credit 2.2, may be obtained if at least 75 percent of non‐hazardous construction and demolition debris can be recycled or salvage d.
  • When terrazzo is used extensively, an innovative design credit can be obtained if you show that the life cycle cost of epoxy terrazzo is lower than that of other flooring materials.Another avenue of an innovative design credit is the use of color in your flooring design. Lighter colors with a glossy surface will reflect a lot more light that darker flooring materials, thus reducing overall energy consumption.A lighting consultant, would analyze the project layout and requirements for lighting levels.Under current LEED programs, there are no credits directly relating to the use of low‐emitting VOC epoxy products. However, an innovative design credit may be achieved for improving the indoor air quality through the use of zero VOC epoxy resins and their stable surfaces reducing air contaminants.
