What is terrazzo?
Terrazzo flooring systems have existed for centuries, dating back to Roman times. Marble chips, byproducts of exquisite sculptures, were mixed with cement and ground to a polished finish to create the original terrazzo flooring system. This enduring mixture is still used today, but with a few modern modifications.

Terrazzo Chip-Aggregate For Terrazzo Flooring:
The specialty aggregates included in terrazzo flooring are the primary ingrediant of the terrazzo design mix, typically representing 70% of the flooring system. These aggregates are most commonly marble chips; however, glass and other specialty aggregates are also suitable for terrazzo flooring.
Domus Divider Strip:
Divider strips are commonly used in terrazzo flooring to serve two basic needs: form and function. For thin-set epoxy terrazzo, the most common divider strips are an “L” type manufactured in a white zinc alloy or brass.
Divider strips may simply serve as a transition between colors or they may be bent on the job site or water-jet cut at the factory to form intricate designs, logo artwork and lettering.
The primary function divider strips offer is to control cracking in your terrazzo flooring topping.
T&M offers custom strip design for any terrazzo project from basic patterns to the most complex designs.
