TERRAZZO & MICRO TERRAZZO COATINGS. ARTIFICIAL LAKES AND BEACHES

‘PLAY’ WITH GLASS, CEMENT AND LIGHT

The possibility of creating terrazzo surfaces on floors and walls and even special constructions such as furniture, flower pots, benches, cement based custom made terrazzo tiles or furniture, with the incorporation of natural stone pebbles, silica sand, shells recycled glass, crystal chips and even mirror pieces, provide unique design possibilities.

The use of NOVACEM CREATIVE as a white or grey hydraulic binder, which is mixed with compatible to cement aggregates allows us to create modern terrazzo coatings in internal and external areas, on floors and walls and in continuous water immersion even inside swimming pools. The ability of the NOVACEM CREATIVE binder to be resistant to swimming pool chemicals, allows us to use it for creating surfaces imitating seaside with pebbles, prepare artificial lakes etc. according to desired aesthetic requirements. The anti-slip effect provided by the use of pebbles in the mix, solves the typical ‘slippery when wet’ problem we often find in the external or internal wet areas like swimming pools.  

Micro-terrazzo in more than 4.000 patterns applied over existing coverings in thickness of 6-8mm

The two component  cement based hydraulic binder (powder and elasticizing latex) OVACEM MICRO TERRAZZO is mixed with calcium carbonate granulates (NX MR), recycled glass (RC-GLASS), or silica sand (NX Q) granulates and the pigments in liquid form NOVACOLOR DESIGN (90 colors) in order to create uniform high strength terrazzo coatings. The application thickness of the coating is initially 7 - 10mm and after it receives mechanical polishing, achieves a final thickness of 6 - 8mm. The combination of the 90 NOVACOLOR DESIGN pigment patterns, the 2 - 4mm grain size natural stone and the recycled glass granulates, allow us to create more than 4000 different terrazzo coatings. The use of appropriate NOVAMIX primers makes it possible to apply these coatings over almost any type of stable and moisture free absorbent substrate such as cement screed or concrete or over non absorbent substrates like existing ceramic tiles or natural stone coverings. The PLANOCOLOR MICRO TERRAZZO coatings can be applied in internal or external floors, houses, offices, hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, airports, over heated floors or bathroom areas.
