Benefits of Polyacrylate Terrazzo
- Does not yellow in direct UV sunlight. Unlike epoxy terrazzo, Polyacrylate terrazzo will hold it’s natural color and will not change over time from UV exposure. This is a huge benefit when designing residences and commercial spaces that carries terrazzo outside, or includes a space with a large amount of light that comes through the windows or skylights.
- Stronger than cement terrazzo, but looks the same. Many epoxy terrazzo installations can end up with a “plastic” look when they are finished. Polyacrylate terrazzo utilizes a cementitious binder matrix and polishes like cement terrazzo. This gives the floor a beautiful “old world” look.
- Similar in cost to epoxy terrazzo. Polyacrylate terrazzo is a competitively priced product and shares a similar price point with epoxy terrazzo.
- Can be installed at 3/8 – ½ inch in thickness. Cement terrazzo typically requires 2 inch recessed slab to accommodate it’s underbed. Polyacrylate terrazzo does not require this and can be installed directly over a concrete or wood substrate. This also significantly decreases the overall weight per square foot of the installed system.
Polyacrylate terrazzo is a very good option for both residential and commercial projects, especially in Southern California where designs incorporate a large amount of natural light.
