Green Idea House Environmental Partnership

Merlex Stucco is continually improving its product line of natural stucco products to add products offering (1) energy efficiency; (2) recycled content; (3) local sourcing; and (4) reduced embodied energy.

Products to be included on the Green Idea House Case Study include 33% Recycled Stucco (based on recycled concrete aggregate), and Vero Antiqua lime plaster (from Merlex's Vero Venetian plaster subsidiary), which has 28% lower embodied energy than cement stucco and incorporates 65% recycled marble aggregate. Merlex & Vero are pleased to support the Fortunatos, who are kindred spirits in their quest to find the most sustainable choices in products that fit their lifestyle.

Our Venetian plaster products were manufactured in an environmentally compatible manner. Vero reminds you to properly handle and dispose of all materials in accordance with regulations established in your area. Caring for our environment is best achieved when we do it together. Even after shipping these products across the Atlantic, these products are “greener” than traditional plaster finishes, and can qualify a project for LEED points under recycled content and innovation credits.

Our newest products are an all natural, 0 VOC, bio-based material, that can help a LEED project attain two points; one point for renewable materials and the second point for sustainable design credit. Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) = 0.15, as tested by Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories according to ASTM C-423-07/NVLAP 08/P03.
