Epoxy Terrazzo: A Sustainable Flooring Option for Commercial Buildings
With the increase of green construction projects around the world, selecting building materials that assist in developing environmentally responsible design is important now more than ever. It takes more than using recycled materials or sourcing materials locally to be considered a green product. Terrazzo flooring is regarded as one of the most sustainable flooring systems you can use today.
As a material supplier of terrazzo materials, we take eco-friendly measures in every step of the development of terrazzo from the sourcing, installation, and product life-cycle. TERRAZZCO epoxy resins are non-toxic, environmentally-friendly, and include options to use recycled materials.
Terrazzo Manufacturing Process and Material Consumption
Concord Terrazzo Company manufactures a full line of two-part epoxy resin products to complete an epoxy terrazzo installation. TERRAZZCO EZPour Epoxy 158 and other epoxy resin products use the highest amounts of recycled and low VOC materials into their composition.
Concord Terrazzo Company also trains TERRAZZCO employees to use green techniques throughout the manufacturing and shipping phases, such as using filtered and recycled water, materials reuse, and waste disposal.
Terrazzo Floors with Recycled Contents
White marble chips are the traditional source of aggregates for terrazzo floors, TERRAZZCO offers post-industrial and post-consumer recycled glass aggregates to mix with our EZPour Epoxy 158 product. To reduce the amount of glass and mirror products making it to landfills, we partner with local waste facilities and manufacturing companies to bring in their discarded materials. Our warehouse facility crushes the glass products in several sizes and color options that can contribute to LEED credits when designing a terrazzo floor.
