Decorative and functional polished polyurethane and epoxy terrazzo systems are popular in the pharmaceutical, commercial and retail sectors.
The polyurethane terrazzo system is designed as a heavy duty decorative floor, suited to the pharmaceutical sector, where the use of aggressive solvents and cleaning agents can attack less resilient floors. With the introduction of carbon fibres and copper tape matrix, the product provides an anti-static surface, a prerequisite for pharmaceutical clean room flooring. Ancorite has been a leader in the marketing and installation of this system for a number of years. The resin matrix is laid and cured before the floor is ground using diamond headed grinding equipment. It is then grouted and polished to provide a smooth decorative finish. Projects have been successfully completed for the pharmaceutical and related industries throughout the UK and Ireland.
The use of different coloured resin and stone mixes, including glass, marble, mother of pearl and mirror glass creates an opportunity for specifiers and end users to design a unique floor. This system is becoming popular in the commercial and retail markets for shopping malls, reception areas and atriums. The resin matrix is laid and cured and the floor is then ground, grouted, polished and sealed to provide a smooth highly decorative finish. The same finish can be supplied for stairs and skirting by pre-forming the terrazzo mix. The inclusion of anti-slip stair treads can greatly enhance a reception area. Epoxy Terrazzo flooring has been supplied for shopping centres, hospitals, hotels, airports, railway stations and schools.
