2022-11-09

The traditional terrazzo floor has advantages such as low cost, optional color matching and parquet, and convenient construction. However, the traditional construction technology causes the terrazzo floor to be very rough and hides dirt and filth, which brings serious obstacles to daily sanitation and cleaning. Over time, very prominent problems have also been encountered in actual use: stains, dullness; surface cracks, partial chipping and falling off, etc.

Traditional terrazzo is widely used in various building products (such as floor tiles, countertops, sinks, etc.), especially terrazzo floors. Although its application range is very wide, due to its rough surface, easy to hold dirt, as well as the characteristics of abrasion and weathering, the shortcomings of traditional construction technology are increasingly exposed.
