Material or Product

EnviroGlas Terrazzo

Source

EnviroGlas Terrazzo is made of post-consumer and post-industrial recycled glass. Over 40 billion glass bottles are made every year, and 75 percent of them wind up in landfills. Many municipalities have stopped collecting glass for recycling due to a lack of market. We offer a solution to that problem. Each EnviroGlas product is about 75 percent recycled glass and 25 percent binder by volume.

EnviroGlas Terrazzo conserves natural resources by utilizing recycled glass as opposed to marble mined from the earth, while at the same time conserving landfill space. The ability to use glass from local recycling programs means minimal transportation impact and therefore minimal greenhouse gas emissions.

EnviroGlas Terrazzo is a seamless solid surface that safeguards the health of the indoor environment because it does not stain, chip or burn and is resistant to chemicals and bacterial growth. The thin set epoxy binder is a 100 percent solid formula, with absolutely no Volatile Organic Compounds and negligible emissions. EnviroGlas Terrazzo odorless hard surface systems require no harsh chemicals to maintain. Cured EnviroGlas is VOC-free so occupants can move immediately in after application with no indoor air quality issues.

Available in hundreds of colors, the bone-colored porcelain looks fantastic in neutral and earth-toned resins, and really pops in bold resin colors like black, yellow, blue and red.
