Product Overview

Marble has, since Roman times, been the symbol to reflect wealth and fine taste. Terralite Fine, created from finely graded natural colour based marble chippings bound in a transparent new generation resin, creates an appearance similar to natural ‘Dressed Granite’. It is an exceptional, decorative and durable natural marble coating, used as a cost effective alternative to natural marble. It is designed primarily for exterior surfaces to satisfy the most demanding architectural requirements.
