Terrazzo tiles may have a base of concrete similar to that of a cement tile, but the topping comprises a white or pigmented cement-based body with an aggregate of marble or agate chips of varying size.
The cement base and aggregate may also vary considerably in colour. After casting and setting the walking surface of the terrazzo tile is ground flat and then polished to a greater or lesser degree to provide either a smooth, shiny surface or a rougher finish. Terrazzo may also be cast insitu, in slabs to provide a seamless surface. Terrazzo is extremely durable and hard wearing but requires sealing to protect against surface damage from acids and staining.
