Is terrazzo supposed to be sealed?

How do you seal terrazzo floors?

Sealing Directions: Seal the surface for between 6-12 hours, except if you are using StoneTech Heavy Duty Sealer. This can be applied within 1 hour. Spread undiluted StoneTech Heavy Duty sealer using a mop or microfiber pad, a roller, or paintpad. Spread the product evenly across the entire floor.
