Painting Technology of Terrazzo Wall
Not long ago, we talked about the pros and cons of terrazzo walls, and today we will discuss the process of glaze on terrazzo walls.
Terrazzo has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its practicality, aesthetics, and environmental friendliness. Bars and terrazzo walls are just some of them.
So, how is terrazzo installed on the wall?
If you want to place terrazzo on the wall, most use prefabricated terrazzo panels. Due to the fluid mixing behind the terrazzo, the feasibility coefficient of wall operation is very low and almost impossible.
Prefabricated terrazzo panels are pre cast terrazzo bricks with properties similar to those of tiles and stones.
We can understand prefabricated terrazzo panels such as natural stones or ceramic tiles. Because from the craftsmanship on the walls, there is actually not much difference. Mainly used for dry hanging and wet pasting. Only after completion can the general polishing process be carried out.
Dry hanging process:
1. Treat the base layer, clean the residue on the wall, and spray water to moisten it.
2. Drill holes on the wall according to the design and planned dimensions, and press stainless steel expansion bolts.
3. Select the corresponding prefabricated terrazzo slab and drill holes according to the location.
4. Install prefabricated terrazzo panels.
5. Clean and plug.
Usually polishing 6 glass surfaces.
The thickness specifications of prefabricated terrazzo slabs are divided into 15mm, 20mm, and 30mm. We only need to retain the minimum finished surface thickness of 80mm, and the other node expressions are completely the same as those of dry hanging stones.
Of course, prefabricated terrazzo panels can be used not only for walls but also for floors, but to achieve more perfect details, the editor suggests using the existing terrazzo for floors, which is seamlessly formed from a single piece. The overall design is more prominent.
Wet adhesion method:
The wet bonding process of prefabricated terrazzo slabs is not much different from the bonding process of stones and tiles, the only difference is the selection of bonding materials. The commonly used cementitious materials for wet bonding mainly include cement and cement mortar.
Basic treatment – Finding surface rules – Bottom plastering – Arrangement, division, elastic lines of bricks – Pasting – Cleaning and caulking – General polishing of glass surfaces
Regardless of the wall installation process used, the final polishing step must be the overall polishing of the glass surface. Polishing the surface of wall glass is more difficult than polishing the surface of floor glass, which tests the skills and strength of operators.
