Understanding Your Market Needs
Our planet is home to more and more people, hence the need for resource-efficient building methods and energy-efficient masonry. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) bricks are among the leading sustainable construction solutions. AAC is produced by mixing quicklime with cement, sand, water and aluminium powder. This results in a slurry that rises and sets to form lightweight and honeycomb-structured blocks with excellent thermal and sound insulation properties.
Over recent decades, the need for new homes and industrial parks has grown significantly, due to fast-rising populations and ever-expanding cities. The goal of sustainable urbanization is challenged by the trend to build in an environmentally friendly way, taking into account resource efficiency for primary raw materials.
Solutions to Meet Your Needs
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a lightweight and precast concrete building material. It simultaneously provides structure, thermal insulation, fire-resistance and mold-resistance for a masonry structure used for housing and industrial buildings. AAC is recognized as a sustainable building technique and is very resource efficient, as densities can be achieved even below 250 kg/m³ for loadbearing bricks. AAC is produced by mixing lime, sand, cement, gypsum and aluminium powder into a batch process. Quicklime, which offers reactivity and fineness, is a key element in the process to cast AAC products. These include blocks, wall panels, floor panels, roof panels, cladding (facade) panels and lintels.
