Merge Design Co. Announces Increased Recycled Content for its LEED-Contributing Material, extremeconcrete® | Xposed

RALEIGH, NC – May 12, 2017 - Merge Design Company, exclusive manufacturer of the LEED-contributing extremeconcrete® line of eco-sensitive materials and products, has increased the recycled content of its extremeconcrete® material, Xposed, making it even more eco-friendly.

Previously, extremeconcrete® | Xposed had consisted of 28% recycled content. Now, the material’s recycled content has increased to 50%. Manufactured in Raleigh, NC, Xposed is a LEED-contributing, eco-sensitive material made from natural minerals mixed with a cementitious binder and pre- and post-consumer recycled content diverted from the waste stream. With all recycled content being sourced from within 500 miles whenever possible, extremeconcrete® | Xposed is an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum based architectural materials and natural stone.

With a honed finish, warm aesthetic and smooth texture, Xposed captures a simplicity and beauty not commonly found in other sustainable choices. Architects, designers and customers seeking a material that expresses a hand- made over machine- made appearance while showing the warmth and depth of natural stone, should order Xposed samples to see for themselves.

extremeconcrete® | Xposed is available in custom products or standard slabs for surfacing that measure 3cm x 60” x 108”. At 3cm thick, a square foot of extremeconcrete® | Xposed weighs approximately 14 lbs. The slabs are available now in every extremeconcrete® color or can be ordered in a custom color upon request. Designed with fabricators in mind, these slabs are easily fabricated and installed just like natural stone, utilizing the same tools and techniques to achieve predictable results.
