Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor and wall treatments. It consists of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, or other suitable material, poured with a cement binder (for chemical binding), polymeric (for physical binding), or a combination of both. Metal strips often divide sections or changes in color or material in a pattern. Additional chips may be sprinkled atop the mix before it sets. After it is cured, it is ground and polished smooth or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface.
As a flooring material, terrazzo is relatively low maintenance and, for that reason, is a popular choice in public buildings such as schools, office blocks, and hospitals.
The care and maintenance of terrazzo are similar to that of natural stone.
