Licata + Greutol is a diverse + leading European manufacturer of building solutions for facades and interior surfaces.
We provide proven systems and materials for the Rendering industry and Decorative Paints & Plasters that you would expect from an Italian designer. Our renders have good impact resistance, that can be thermally insulated-ETICS, offering a wide color range of polymer modified finishing coats either in Acrylic, Silicon, Silicate, Elasto and Monocouche coloured render with matching paint finishes.
Our extensive range of renders + external wall insulation systems ensures we can provide an innovative solution for any residential, commercial or educational project whether it be new-build or refurbishment. Our systems have been rigorously tested by BBA, ETA, ETAG004, and BS476 and are compliant with NHBC standards. Combined with our Waterproofing and concrete repair systems we offer a wide ranging portfolio of powder and paste solutions.
However, our story and success has not only been built on modern render systems. We also offer a range of Lime based renders holding faith to the use of Pozzolanic raw materials. The use of pozzolans helps reduce pollution by reducing the manufacture of Portland Cement. One of the first recorded projects using Pozzolans is the Coliseum in Rome, where it was used as an early Concrete mix and also as a Hydraulic lime render to cover the common brick work before being clad in Travertine. Pozzolans can be found in volcanic rock and when crushed it can be used as a binder in mortars or concrete mixes. The pozzolans used in the construction of the Coliseum were gathered from Mount Vesuvius in Naples.
The water-based colouring system, Greusystemcolors, is based on more than twenty years of Licata + Greutol development & research. Our experience in the field of colour design easily lends itself to the everyday need of the painting & decorating expert or dedicated DIY enthusiast.
Lime is a mineral element known since Ancient Roman times, who used it to create enormous structures like the Coliseum, and the Pantheon. Although it was thought that the Phoenicians, who pre-dated the Romans and settled in many Mediterranean countries including Sicily & Italy also used Lime.
GreuTherm is a Thermal Insulation System. It can minimise heat loss through walls and save on energy consumption. Licata + Greutol firmly believe in a Fabric first approach to construction-the more insulation in the fabric of the building then the lower the energy consumption will be. The reduction of energy consumption is crucial for our planet and the heritage of our families to come
