Greencon : Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) Block


Why is your product Green?

AAC contains a pore content of approximately 80%. That is the reason why 4m3 of construction material can be produced out of 1m3of raw materials. The low consumption of raw materials contributes to their conservation compared to other construction materials. By-products of AAC production such as condensate from the autoclaving, hardened AAC waste and unhardened AAC mixture can be recycled back into the production of AAC. Besides, other industrial waste like fly ash and slag can be utilized as ma

Product / Service Description

Cost Effectiveness
AAC blocks are approximately one-fifth the weight of normal concrete. Total construction cost saving can be achieved through reduction in working load of foundation and steel bar. In addition, reductions in maintenance, energy bills and insurance are realized thereafter.

AAC has proven to be a very durable material. AAC will not rot, warp, rust, corrode, or otherwise decompose. AAC is not a food source for insects and does not harbour or encourage vermin. AAC has been used in many countries around the world for over 60 years and is proven to be in good condition until now.

AAC is an inert material that is completely non-toxic. The main ingredients of AAC are quartz sand, cement, lime and water. After the production process and steam curing (autoclaving), the materials chemical and mineral composition has been stabilised to form a solid Tobermorite crystalline structure which is a volcanic material found in nature.
