AAC Block Features
Easy to install :
AAC Blocks are light in weight, though they are quite big in terms of dimension. This is because the blocks being composed of around 80% air and hence the blocks weigh less. This means the labor cost will also be less.
High compressive strength :
This can be achieved by applying high steam pressure while curing through autoclave mechanism. Therefore, it has higher compressive strengths than ordinary bricks.
Light weight :
The bricks are made by combining lime, gypsum, fly ash and cement and has a density of 500-850 kg/cm3. This is helpful in making each block light in weight and hence transportation cost and labor cost is reduced.
Excellent thermal Insulation :
Since we have higher temperatures everywhere, it is better we have thermal insulated blocks in our homes and offices so that our interiors remain cool.
Fire Resistant :
The melting point of AAC is over 2900 ºF, more than twice the typical temperature in a building fire of 1200 ºF. This exceeds the requirements of the Standard Building Code, and provides a significant level of protection against loss of life and property.
Labor output speedy :
Since the blocks are bigger in size and shape, so the work on a particular work can be done faster.
These AAC Blocks can be drilled, nailed and shaped easily and finally can be finished off with a coat of plaster too. Hence, they are extremely usable.
Superior acoustic insulation :
A smart invention that has rendered peace and quietude in families, as the composition is of a porous material and thus the outer noise is reduced.
Earthquake and Weather resistant :
AAC Blocks also provide security and stability to the structure even in rough climatic conditions.
Durability and Dimensional Stability :
Due to its smooth surface and large dimension, mortar expense is reduced by over 70%.
Termite and pest resistant :
With termites having the capability to spoil even a good house and reduce its longevity, our AAC Blocks are made so that this does not happen.
Environmental Friendly :
We believe in protecting our environment. AAC is credited by LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and USGBC (US Green Building Council) as a "green" alternative to traditional construction materials. Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) also recommends its use in India.
