Recycled materials countertops


Terrazzo is a beneficial material that helps in the design of sustainable buildings. To preserve scarce materials, terrazzo is a great alternative to other flooring types. The material can consist of recycled materials that have a positive impact on the health of people and the environment. Epoxy resins like the ones we manufacture at TERRAZZCO contain zero VOC contents, which diminishes harmful gasses from dispersing into the air, thus improving overall air quality. Architects and designers not only seek out terrazzo for its durability and design but also its contribution to LEED points. Because terrazzo is innovative, consists of recycled materials, and can be sourced locally, it can play a huge role in shaping the world of architecture.

White Pearl is quarried from a bedrock quarry in Brazil. It resembles marble in appearance but is much harder and more durable. Because of this, it can be used for kitchen countertops without having the scratching and etching issues experienced with marble. White Pearl has a creamy white background with grey and taupe veining. Due to the structure of the quarry, some blocks will have linear veining while other blocks will show sweeping movement. During the polishing process, an epoxy resin is applied to the surface of the stone to fill in any natural pits, cracks, or fissures that may exist. It is possible for some of the more minute pits that are too small to effectively hold the resin, to reopen during other finishing stages. However, this does not affect the durability, maintenance, or beauty of the stone. Due to the qualities of the stone, the slabs are book-matched, meaning slab one and slab two will be cut and polished to create a mirror image of each other. These are then kept in sequence, which allows for a consistent flow in pattern. Finally, a mesh backing is adhered to the back of the stone to ensure safety while handling and fabricating the slab.

As a natural stone product, it is recommended that this be sealed to extend its longevity. This quartzite has a more open structure and therefore needs a sealer that is designed to penetrate properly to ensure that the stone is sealed. Arizona Tile suggests using 3 coats of Miracle Sealants 511 Porous Plus or Dry Treat Premium Impregnating Sealer for the initial sealing, which needs to be done at the time of installation and applying 1 coat of sealer every 6 months moving forward. It’s also recommended to seal all cut edges before installation. This will help prevent water and oils from penetrating into the stone around sinks, faucet holes, ovens and any seams.

Welcome to Roma Export

Roma Export originally started as a stone mosaic and terrazzo manufacturer in 1999. Over the years, however, it has entered many other markets as both a supplier and manufacturer. At first mainly stone related markets such as Stone Mosaic Wall Cladding, Terrazzo Sinks and Statues and Buddha Moldings were targeted. With the change in both domestic and international demand, however, we also decided to expand in more environmentally friendly durable products, such as: WPC Decking, Recycled Wood Wall Cladding and WPC Click Tiles.
