Composition of AAC
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC), also known as Autoclaved Cellular Concrete (ACC) or Autoclaved Lightweight Concrete (ALC), was invented in the mid-1920s by the Swedish architect and inventor Johan Axel Eriksson. It is a lightweight, precast building material that simultaneously provides structure, insulation, and fire and mold resistance. AAC products include Blocks, and Wall panels.
It has been refined into a highly thermally insulating concrete-based material used for both internal and external construction. Besides AAC’s insulating capability, one of its advantages in construction is its quick and easy installation, for the material can be routed, sanded, and cut to size on site using standard carbon steel band-saws, hand saws, and drills.
AAC Blocks reduce build time, labour, materials and hence save money
AAC is particularly economical in large scale projects
AAC product has been widely used in industrial and civil construction.
AAC product can be divided into AAC block and AAC plate.
