The cementitious terrazzo floors on this page are at a Catholic church in Kenosha, Wisconsin. The floors are 134 years old.

When we arrived, the cementitious terrazzo was in bad shape. Some sections were pebbled in texture. Other sections had been covered with carpeting and carpet glue for decades.

Our small crew worked for two days with a very old burnisher to achieve these results.

Cementitious Terrazzo that’s Safer and Less Slippery

The coefficient of friction measures a surface’s frictional resistance to a moving object. “Dynamic Coefficient of Friction” (DCOF) ratings are established by a tribometer.

​DCOF ratings are split into three ranges between .0 and 1.0. Floors with higher DCOF ratings (above .42) are safer. Floors with lower ratings are more dangerous.

Simix High Shine Ceramic Floor Coating is rated at .436, which means it is high traction by ANSI standard DCOF testing using a tribometer
