This Material Safety Data Sheet will keep you informed about how to safely work with Terrazzio. Caution: Don’t Eat Terrazzio. It will break your teeth.
We have 25 year old school installations that still look great today. The reason for our durability can be seen in our Test Data. The compressive strength of Terrazzio was tested by the equivalent application of 6 tons of pressure applied to the area of a fat man’s thumb print without any evidence of failure. This toughness translates to durability for the Life of Your Building.
SeALER & MAINTENANCE
Ease of maintenance is one of the greatest benefits of Terrazzio. The smooth natural polish applied to the hard stone in Terrazzio provides a dense surface that offers great resistance to staining and abrasion. For most applications, normal sweeping and mopping is all that is required after the Terrazzio has been properly Sealed.
