Aerocon is an ideal substitute for traditional clay bricks and hollow
concrete blocks used for wall construction.
blocks are in range from a thickness of 75mm to 200mm respectively. They
can also be made to required size.
Aerocon's micro cellular structure incorporates millions of pockets of
trapped air which gives it characteristic light weight, high thermal
insulation and excellent frost and water resistance.
basic raw materials used in production of Aerocon blocks are Cement, Fly
ash, lime and water.
Aerocon blocks can be plastered, painted, dry lined or tiled.
manufactured by combining sand, lime, cement, and water plus an
expansion agent that reacts with the other ingredients to form the
porous microstructure in the concrete.
manufacturing process for the block form of AAC begins by mixing
carefully measured quantities of the ingredients.
Aerocon block is extremely light, just one-third the weight of clay
bricks. They are much easier to handle on the site.
Aerocon block covers the same area as that 14 clay bricks do enabling a
faster construction results in saving of labour, time and material.
Aerocon's excellent thermal properties helps in saving recurring costs
of heating and cooling.
fire resistant. It is moisture resistant. It has exceptional good
Aerocon blocks are resistant to moisture penetration. the structure
being closed cells, there is less capillary action, thus providing a
high level of moisture resistance.
Aerocon blocks have exceptionally good workability and are easy to cut,
shape and chase using ordinary wood working tools.
Aerocon blocks are widely used in residential, commercial and industrial
building systems have been evaluated by National Evaluation Services
that encompass the code bodies SBCCI, BOCA, and UBC. These three codes
cover almost all state jurisdictions and should satisfy all needs.
US, modern uses of AAC began in 1990, for residential and commercial
projects in the southeastern states. US production of plain and
reinforced AAC started in 1995 in the southeast, and has since spread to
other parts of the country.
Construction costs for homes using AAC in the US vary because the
limited number and irregular geographical distribution of manufacturing
facilities result in varying AAC transport costs.
cost of building with AAC initially may be 15 to 20 percent higher that
conventional (i.e., wood or concrete block) construction due to the time
it takes for the trades to learn to handle the material.
