  • 4 reasons why all-natural terrazzo has the upper hand

Text by Disa Tan

Making a major comeback in recent years, terrazzo is turning up everywhere – from flooring to countertops and even on walls for a daring statement. It is typically a composite material featuring marble, granite, quartz or glass chips but Agglotech, Europe’s largest producer of terrazzo, has revolutionised its production using natural materials with a significantly reduced carbon footprint. Available at Hafary, here’s more on how their green terrazzo can make a real difference in your home.


#1 It’s the safer choice against VOCs

Exposure to high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be a concern for those with health issues, or households with vulnerable members like children and seniors. These man-made chemicals emitted from everyday objects can cause irritation to the skin, eyes and respiratory system. Achieving the Indoor Advantage Gold certification, terrazzo from Agglotech has been certified in emitting lower levels of VOCs, in line with the Internal Air Quality (IAQ) standards for construction materials and furnishings. That makes it safe for use indoors and brings greater assurance to individuals suffering from allergies, asthma or those experiencing thyroid issues.


#2 It’s an eco-friendly surface

By using renewable raw materials such as Portland cement, marble aggregate and water, this marble-cement terrazzo is fully sustainable. Its production does not require heat, fossil fuels or synthetic resins, which helps greatly in reducing CO2 emissions contributing to climate change. This is all part of a long-term strategy by Agglotech to gradually reduce CO2 emissions for a more sustainable future.


#3 It has limitless indoor and outdoor applications

Besides giving an artisanal feel to walls and floors, this terrazzo can be applied to stairways, countertops, backsplashes or custom designs. Its versatility lies in its high-performance features such as high-scratch resistance and an anti-slip surface. It is also ideal for outdoor use thanks to its consistency in colour, low coefficient of thermal expansion, UV resistance and stability in technical performance.


#4 It offers a large and distinctive variety of colours

Looking at Agglotech’s extensive range of terrazzo selections, who knew terrazzo could come in so many types of colours and grain sizes? You’ll find over 30 different designs at Hafary itself and each design carries different colours and grain sizes to meet your specific design needs.
