a range of materials that is not readily available in the
market place. Rare stones and aggregates are imported by Durite,
such as white/pink powder & granular form of crushed Quartzite
used in fine matrix for terrazzo table tops & flooring,
making volume between stone-spaces in terrazzo more dense
and creating a natural stone effect rather than synthetic
Terrazzo Metal Strips Durite imports, and uses local US manufactures
for production of standard and specially made metal strips
used in terrazzo floors for esthetics, expansion joints, and
color separation in terrazzo floor art design. Metal profiles
are L or T shaped and ranges in white
metals (Zinc/ Aluminum) to copper based (Brass) and custom
made colors (Polyester Dividers), such as red, black and other
colors. Thickness and sizes vary and are priced accordingly.
Durite® also pre-assembles
Metal Design & Box Dividers for making site work assembling
easier and more cost-effective. Metal design and box dividers
are used to create shapes & forms that would be installed
in terrazzo floors using metal design as terrazzo color separations
coupled with esthetic looks of metal strips in terrazzo floors.
Design and specs are sent to Durite for pricing.
Durite® had researched and
experimented with different E-poxy manufacturing companies
for selecting the E-poxy of choice. Each E-poxy polymer has
its own characteristics ranging in colors(not
all black colors are same), curing time (fast
or delayed setting),hardness/brittle-ness(effects
cutting buffing and polishing), compressive and tensile
strength, all effects the handling, esthetics and hardness
of floors/ table tops & other terrazzo products. Durite®
has perfected E-poxy add-mixtures for achieving different
results in floor surfacing, table/bar tops and pre-cast applications.
