Brief description about AAc Blocks

AAC Blocks- Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Blocks

AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) Block is a certified green building material. These precast concrete blocks are extremely lightweight and widely used for internal and external construction. It is a Lightweight, Load-bearing, High-insulating, Durable building product- which is produced in wide range of sizes and strengths. AAC Block is lightweight and when compared to red bricks AAC blocks are three times lighter. The Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) material was developed in 1924 in Sweden. It has become one of the most used building materials in Europe and is rapidly growing in many other countries around the world. AAC offers incredible opportunities to increase building quality and at the same time reduce costs at the construction site. AAC is produced out of a mix of quartz sand and/or pulverized fly ash (PFA), lime, cement, gypsum, water and aluminum and is hardened by steam-curing in autoclaves. As a result of its excellent properties, AAC is used in many building constructions, for example in residential homes, commercial and industrial buildings, schools, hospitals, hotels and many other applications. AAC contains 60% to 85% air by volume.
