New construction materials is a new type of construction materials that is different from the traditional construction materials such as bricks and stones. The selection of new and reasonable materials can directly reduce project investment and reduce overall project maintenance costs.
AAC Block & Panel is extremely versatile and is available in blocks and panels of various sizes and widths for non load-bearing construction applications including external walls, internal walls, floors and fences.
The Lightweight Building Block
AAC Block is one third and a quarter lighter than the equivalent fired clay brick and concrete block. The reason consists in the porous structure of the block, where millions of air bubbles occupy 70-75% of the total block.
Thermal Insulation and Energy Efficiency
AAC Block & Panel have very low thermal conductivity. So space inside the AAC Block or Panel building tends to be cooler in summer and warmer in winter providing long-term added value.
AAC Block & Panel have natural sound insulation thanks to their porous structure and their ability to dampen mechanical vibration energy. The sound coming from inside or outside of the room moves in a Zig Zag direction, in which it will be split up and minimized substantially before going through the wall.
AAC Block materials have high uniformity in which the concrete structure is cured in the high pressure saturated steam. In the autoclaving process AAC Block, is highly durable and has the highest compressive strength among light-weight AAC Blocks.
AAC Block & Panel are resistant to high temperatures for a longer period than most solid building materials. Depending on the walling thickness of the AAC Block and Panel, fire ratings up to three hours can be achieved. It is non-combustible and it will not give off toxic fumes.
Resistant to insects and rodents.
Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels produced by APEX have the advantages of water saving, energy saving, time saving, material saving, land saving, high building utilization, and environmental protection.
For example, compared with traditional buildings, buildings built using AAC can save about 80% of water, 70% of energy, 70% of time, and save about 20% of materials. With the development of society and the increase of people’s requirements for resource utilization, new construction such as autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panels will be more and more popular.
