Does anyone know how long you have to wait between the pouring of the base slab, pouring of the sand cushion and pouring of the final 1/2" terrazzo topping? Can you do the whole process in three consecutive days? Or would you have to wait a month for each layer to cure?
Thanks

Thanks pipeguy. Do you think when they say cure the underbed, they mean it to be cured the same amount of time as the base slab? The underbed is a one part cement to four part sand mixture.

Calypso, I hope the link could be some help to you. I figured maybe a little info would get you over the hump. If you need expertise you'll need answers from a FLOORguy or TERRAZZOguy - not a PIPEguy. :Thumbs: Good luck.

Thanks Bill. From what I have read on terrazzo sites, I need to wait the usual 28 days for the slab cure. They mentioned that the sand/cement cushion came next but not how long to wait before pouring the terrazzo topping. Thanks for the seven days information.
