22 Nov Microaggregates
When choosing your aggregates, there are many factors to consider. One factor to consider is the chip size. In the terrazzo industry, we use terms like standard and venetian to sort out the aggregates. But TERRAZZCO® would like to introduce you to microaggregates.
Standard and Venetian Aggregate Chips
When developing a design for a terrazzo surface, you can use glass chips, seashells or stones. TERRAZZCO® crushes its line of aggregates at our factory and packages them into 50 pound bags. Most projects require the use of standard aggregates, which are chips labeled from size 0 to size 2. At an architect’s request, TERRAZZCO® can provide larger chip sizes refereed to as venetian chip. Venetian chips range from size 3 to size 8.
However, that’s not the end of the spectrum. TERRAZZCO® has gone as far as to reduce the aggregate size past the standard #0. With microaggregates, the design flexibility of terrazzo just got expanded. Now the terrazzo surface can include a zero-minus or double zero size. Here have a look for yourself.
With the aggregate broken down to an even smaller size, it provides more opportunity to include different aggregates in various colors and sizes all within a given space. No grouting of the material is necessary.
