History of terrazzo reaches ancient Egypt, and it hasn't changed its form in general. Tossing marble chips into cement and polishing after is very similar to most current technology. There are obviously differences in terms of concrete quality or machine polishing, but it's still the same old terrazzo. Currently, there are two major groups of terrazzo - one is a cementitious base product, and the other is resin based. First is classic terrazzo, suitable for interior as well as exterior, requires good quality concrete slab and mortar underbed. The latter is called thin-set terrazzo, suitable for interior applications only, but there are more colours to choose from, it much less prone to cracking, allows for a thinner application in a shorter time, allowing for the lighter weight of the whole system. Hollywood Walk of Fame is a perfect example of classic terrazzo.
