To Order Slip Resistant Products

How to treat slippery terrazzo:

First the floor should be thoroughly cleaned and rinsed. Be sure there is no cleaner left on the floor.

Use Slip Zero Level 2. Follow all of the directions that are contained in the package.

Treat a small test area first. This test area will determine the length of time that the product will be left on the floor. Usually this is around 3 to 5 minutes.

Once the dwell time is determined, the product will be mopped onto the floor. After the proper amount of time, the treated area will be neutralized (provided in the package).

The area is then thoroughly rinsed and dried about three times and the floor will be ready for use immediately.

How terrazzo flooring is made:

Ever wonder how terrazzo floors are made? 

First, cement masons or terrazzo workers build a solid, level concrete foundation that is 3 to 4 inches deep. Second, after the forms are removed from the foundation, workers add a 1-inch layer of sandy concrete. Terrazzo workers partially embed, or attach with adhesive, metal divider strips in the concrete wherever there is to be a joint or change of color in the terrazzo. For the third and final layer, terrazzo workers blend and place into each of the panels a fine marble chip mixture that may be color-pigmented. While the mixture is still wet, workers add additional marble chips of various colors into each panel and roll a lightweight roller over the entire surface.

When the terrazzo is thoroughly set, they grind it with a terrazzo grinder, which is somewhat like a floor polisher, only much heavier. Any depressions left by the grinding are filled with a matching grout material and hand-troweled for a smooth, uniform surface. The terrazzo installers then clean, polish, and seal the dry surface for a lustrous finish.

This is certainly beautiful but can be very slippery when wet!
