What Are Cement Tiles?

Cement or terrazzo tiles are made of a mixture of cement, aggregates (usually marble or granite chips), natural color oxides and water. They have been used as a flooring material for hundreds of years, and differ from ceramic or porcelain tiles in that they offer more versatility in terms of design, size and color and are more durable and long-lasting. Cement tiles can be polished many times over after installation, bringing them back to new after decades of use.

Cement tiles are considered a green, environmentally friendly product, typically lasting the lifetime of a building. Their production utilizes mainly natural earth materials with minimal environmental impact, and the process is non-polluting as the tiles are hydraulically pressed, not fired in a kiln like ceramic tiles.
