Terrazo tile is also applied in the form of mosaic. Terrazo tiles, which are generally used in floor coverings, know no limits in color variety. There are two types of tile mosaics: two-layer and one-layer. In particular, single-layer industrial flooring materials are produced as more void-free and less porous since the excess water in the tiles is removed by vacuum technique. Therefore, the water absorption rate is less. Two-layer tiles are produced with a thickness of 25-50 mm, while single-layer tiles are produced with a thickness of 15-20 mm. Therefore, single-layer tiles are lighter.
