    Is it coated?

    Strip and wax or even better, strip and diamond polish

    You can strip and refinish. Spp are great on Terrazo. My Catholic Churches
    have it, and that’s what I do. A lot faster than polishing.

    But after it's polished , wouldn't the polish hold up better then the wax? I have Terrazo that I strip and wax , wish I could polish it.

    You have to maintain both. The reason I put finish on most of mine is time frame to turn it around.
