Terrazzo was created as an inexpensive flooring by Venetian workers during the 15th century. Traditionally terrazzo is made of a combination of marble, granite, quartz, and other decorative chips set in a cement binder. Since the 1970s and the development of epoxy terrazzo has there been an advancement in the type of chips used in terrazzo flooring. Terrazzo glass chips in particular.


Epoxy terrazzo is a non-porous flooring system that is ideal for high-traffic areas within commercial and institutional buildings. The flooring systems offer an infinite variety of surface colors, along with a wider range of aggregates to complement the marble chips such as shells, synthetic, and recycled glass chips.


Glass chips are used in either an epoxy resin or polyacrylate matrix, and adds vibrance yielding a more colorful and eye-catching floor design.

Terrazzo Glass Sizes

Most terrazzo manufacturers will carry aggregates varying in different sizes. Sizes at TERRAZZCO are available in fines, #00, #0, #1, #2, and #3.


Aggregates can go up to size #7, which is referred to as Venetian Terrazzo. If planning an epoxy terrazzo flooring, we do not recommend exceeding a size #3 aggregate due to the epoxy terrazzo floor being 3/8″ thickness.

Terrazzo Glass Colors

Glass chips range from clear to vibrant colors like cobalt blue, green, yellow, orange, and red, to dark colors like black and amber glass. Clear glass has its advantage as it is a translucent color that will blend in with the color of the resin of the terrazzo floor. There are also recycled mirror chips that reflects from a terrazzo surface. Glass chips provide a wider selection of colors for terrazzo contractors to offer their clients that they may not find in traditional marble chips.


Where do these colorful glass chips come from? Glass comes from waste facilities where glass bottles and wine bottles in various colors can be crushed into different sizes and reused to create beautiful seamless terrazzo surfaces. Terrazzo glass offers a recyclable component to epoxy terrazzo and prevents the glass from ever entering landfills.

Adding Terrazzo Glass to Your Mix Design

You can make your terrazzo floors more environmentally friendly by selecting an epoxy terrazzo system made entirely of recycled crushed glass chips. Whether you are designing a terrazzo floor, countertop, or stair design, glass chips have their advantages when it comes to sustainability. Using glass as the main component of your terrazzo floor can contribute to U.S. Green Building Council certified LEED points. One or two LEED points contributed to use of recycled contents.


A terrazzo contractor can install an epoxy terrazzo floor consisting of all terrazzo glass chips. For a stronger and more durable floor, it is advised to mix glass chips with marble chips.
