WerkMaster Terrazzo Refinishing System
Our 4 Step Mist ‘N Go Polish System delivers superior results over conventional systems
The following system is currently being used to refurbish 2.4 million square feet of cementitious terrazzo at the Toronto Transit Commission Subway Station.
Step 1- Initial Cut & Clean
Remove sealers and contamination using WerkMaster 100 Grit Terrazzo Tooling.
This stage also requires densification using WerkMaster ULTRAhard Terrazzo Densifier.
Step 2- Hone & Polish
Use our 200 Grit Terrazzo Tooling to quickly and easily hone and start your initial polish.
Step 3 – Terrazzo Polishing
Use our 400 Grit Terrazzo Tooling to give your terrazzo flooring a long lasting shine.
Step 4 – Protect & Beatify
Low maintenance and long lasting beautiful floors that are acid and stain resistant. ULTRAguard sealers ensure a minimum 24 hour stain and etching resistance to acids, wine, coffee, vinegar, mustard and other chemicals, making them an excellent choice for grocery stores, food courts, garages, restaurants, hospitals, schools, hotels, etc.
Care & Maintenance of Terrazzo
When dealing with terrazzo, the use of a pure surface coating (as most floor waxes are) is unnecessary and ordinarily NOT recommended. The terrazzo surface is at least 70% marble or aggregate. Applying a surface coating or wax may decrease the non-slip co-efficient of friction below the standard rating of 0.5. The marble chips and aggregates (which make up 70% of the terrazzo floor) have very low porosity and do not absorb most staining substances. The portion of the terrazzo that needs protection is the binder, especially portland cement, which is porous and will absorb stains. Terrazzo does not need protection from wear, it needs protection from absorption and this is achieved though the use of a penetrating sealer which seals off the pores in the binder.
