THE PERFECT BUILDING MATERIAL
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a lightweight, yet strong and durable buildingmaterial.Produced all over the world,AAC is extensively used in residential, commercial and industrial constructions today.
AAC is an eco-friendly building material, made from natural raw materials such assand (or fly-ash), cement, lime, gypsum,aluminium powder and water. This mixcreates an aerated concrete providingexcellent insulation, structure and fireprotection in one lightweight product.
ENERGY AND RESOURCES EFFICIENCY
Thanks to the air pores in the material, AAC is a great acoustic and thermal insulator. The thermal conductivity (λ) values are between0,08 – 0,16 W/mK depending on density used. This low thermal conductivity value allows for around 30% savings on heating and cooling costs.
AAC product densities vary between 300 – 800kg/m 3 and compressive strengths are between 2,5 – 7 N/mm 2 . The finished product volume is 3x the volume of the raw materials used, making it an extremely resource-efficient and environmental friendly building material.
FAST AND EASY BUILDING SYSTEM
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete blocks and panels are lightweight and easy to handle; therefore, construction times are 2-5 times faster than other conventional methods. AAC panels offer new possibilities for product applications beyond AAC blocks. In panel based systems, installation of prefabricated elements is quite fast and easy. As a result, the total time and cost of an installed m2 is significantly reduced in terms of labour and overheads.
The SUPER SMOOTH surface of the blocks and panels adds to quick finishing of the total construction as the walls require less plaster, surface treatment and finishing materials.
FIRE PROOF AND SAFE BUILDINGS
All AAC products are well-suited to withstand fires, earthquakes, and other natural disasters. AAC achieves the highest possible level of fire safety and can withstand up to 4 hours of direct fire
exposure. It is non-combustible and classified as Euroclass A1.
