Terrazzo is a composite material, poured in place or precast, which is used for floor, countertops and wall treatments. It consists of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other suitable chips, sprinkled or un-sprinkled, and poured with a binder that is cementitious, chemical, or a combination of both. Terrazzo is cured and then ground and polished to a smooth surface or otherwise finished to produce a uniformly textured surface.
