In this blog, we explore what makes Flowcrete’s seamless terrazzo range a popular choice for architects and specifiers, who require an elegant flooring solution that will stand the test of time.

Durability – A Resin Floor Finish That is Stronger Than the Substrate

When specifying flooring for commercial environments, we know all too well of the requirement for a robust solution that will be able to endure high volumes of foot traffic on a day-to-day basis. Through consistent dedication to research and development, Flowcrete has brought to market a durable, high-performance formulation that is guaranteed to deliver a high standard floor finish.

Depending on your project requirements and the system selected, Flowcrete’s Mondeco collection is available in a choice of 12mm and 9mm nominal thickness, as well as a more economical 6-7mm option. Mondeco offers superior UV stability to help reduce yellowing, which enhances the range’s overall resistance, and its maintainable, easy-to-clean finish ensures an excellent, long-lasting lifespan.

Mondeco TZ, in particular, has a sustained temperature tolerance of up to 120 °C and incorporates the added benefits associated with Polygiene®, containing a silver ion antimicrobial additive that is proven to inhibit the growth of most harmful bacteria types. Flowcrete has a long-standing relationship with Polygiene®, having incorporated their antibacterial flooring technology into several of their resin systems. The incorporation of such technology further adds to the easy-to-maintain nature of Flowcrete’s Mondeco flooring range, which, if cared for properly with a regular cleaning and polishing routine, will last the lifetime of the building.

The hygiene benefits associated with Flowcrete’s Seamless Resin Terrazzo Flooring range, make it a highly suitable choice for installation within the pharmaceutical sector. This industry requires flooring systems that meet strict hygiene and safety standards to maintain operational sanitation and safety for pharmaceutical and medical research facilities. Owing to its chemical resistance properties, Mondeco TZ protects the floor against acids, alkalis, chemical solvents, and sanitisers, making the system ideal for use in environments that come into regular contact with harsh chemicals.

Beauty – Timeless Aesthetics

The beauty of a Mondeco floor finish will leave a lasting impression in the hearts and minds of all who encounter it. Enabling the perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics through a technological blend of resin and aggregates, this is subsequently diamond ground to deliver a beautiful, smooth, slip-resistant, and seamless terrazzo floor finish.

Available to Flowcrete customers are a wide variety of colourful and decorative aggregates, including marble, glass, granite, mirror glass, mother of pearl, and flint, to give your terrazzo floor that world-renowned finishing touch. However, the design potential of Mondeco means we can also offer bespoke mixes and colours that provide architects and specifiers the creative freedom to achieve a shimmering work of art.

Thanks to the practicality of resin flooring, the pattern and shimmer of a Mondeco floor won’t deteriorate over time due to common everyday occurrences, such as food and drink spillages, heavy foot traffic, as well as intense cleaning. Therefore, you can rest assured that your client’s seamless terrazzo floor finish will maintain its shimmering lustre whatever comes its way.
