RSL R.S. Terrazzo
R.S. Terrazzo is a 4-part decorative seamless floor finish comprised of inert marble aggregates and epoxy resin. It provides both a high wear and decorative finish for public areas such as shopping centres, airports and supermarkets.
- Chemical resistant
- Extremely hard wearing
- Hot water resistant
Note that all colours have minimum order quantities of 70 units and lead times of 5 working days due to being made to order
R.S. Terrazzo is a heavy duty decorative epoxy terrazzo effect seamless floor finish produced from inert marble aggregates and epoxy resin. R.S. Terrazzo is ideal where there is both a high wear and aesthetic decorative requirement such as shopping centres, retail outlets, airport terminals and office buildings.
It was installed in Hope Hospital by Balfour Beatty, a commission from Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. It was during this project that the marble aggregates were combined with granite aggregates to fit their requirements.
R.S. Terrazzo was also used to refurbish the floor, stairs and ramped areas of Manchester Central Library, keeping in fitting with the Grade II Listed building’s decor.

Products required for this system
- Primer : Resuseal WB, Resuprime ST on dry substrates, or use Resuprime MVT on damp surfaces where required
- System : R.S. Terrazzo
- Surface Seal : Resupen WB Clear/Clear Matt
New Concrete Floors:
Must be clean, sound, dry, fully cured and surface laitance removed by vacuum enclosed shot blasting, scarifying or mechanical grinding. Fats, oils or greases must be removed by mechanical means and detergent washing and make sure all residue detergent is washed and removed by rinsing with clean water.
Existing Floors (previously coated)
All previous coatings and loose floor paints must be removed by mechanical preparation as described in the above section and primed as specified. If the old resin flooring cannot be removed, then please consult with our technical team for advice on intercoat adhesion and suitability as it may not be compatible with existing floor coating.
Where overcoating other systems such as epoxy coatings or screeds, as part of a specified composite system in the data sheets, please follow the recoat time as stated in the individual data sheets, the coating in each stage should be tack free, but not fully cured. If fully cured then mechanical preparation is required to ensure intercoat adhesion.
Open and porous substrates may require priming with Resuseal WB, also Resuprime ST may be used as primer on dry substrates only with less than 75% ERH reading. Where the Relative Humidity of a substrate exceeds 75% ERH Resuprime MVT should be specified and selected on the basis of hygrometer readings in accordance with BS 8203.
The number of coats to be applied is chosen in accordance with the following table:
|ERH%||Required Coating Thickness|
|75-85||1 coat of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat|
|85-92||2 coats of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat|
|92-97||3 coats of Resuprime MVT at 200 microns per coat|
The ambient temperatures of the areas should not be allowed to fall below 15°C throughout the application and the curing period, as this could have an adverse effect on the appearance and colour of the system. Surface temperature must be above 10°C. Where possible it is recommended that the application area is heated to a minimum temperature of 15°C ideally to allow the ambient and substrate temperature to stabilize prior to installation.
Pre-mix the coloured base component to a uniform consistency then mix the entire contents of the base with the hardener. If a separate mixing bucket is being used mix thoroughly ensuring all contents of both components are removed from the buckets supplied. Transfer to a forced action mixer and add the aggregate components slowly whilst mixing. Add the powder first followed by the marble aggregate. Mix for approximately two to three minutes until the three components have fully combined.
R.S Terrazzo should be worked with a trowel or float to achieve a dense, compacted finish. Apply at nominal 10mm between battens to the primed concrete with a steel float to produce a uniform level finish. This is best achieved by the application of smooth even pressure in one direction, gradually increasing the pressure as the material compacts and beds down.
After curing for a minimum of 48 hours at 20°C, grinding can commence on R.S. Terrazzo. This is followed by a fine cut to remove cutting marks. Care must be taken to use appropriate equipment to achieve the necessary finish.
