International Research On AAC Block
- AAC stands out among construction materials due to its exceptional thermal resistance and thermal inertia (Ropelwski et al, 2019).
- Compared to conventional concrete, AAC offers numerous advantages, including an advanced strength-to-weight ratio, a lower coefficient of thermal expansion, and effective sound insulation (Hamed, 2019).
- AAC Blocks surpass burnt clay bricks in terms of durability, efficiency, and strength across various parameters. Their use not only reduces overall building costs but also accelerates the construction process (2014).
- AAC Blocks act as a barrier against termites and pests, preventing their spread and growth (2018).
- Being completely inorganic, AAC Blocks do not emit toxic fumes or harmful gases, ensuring the safety of occupants (2018).
- The utilization of AAC Blocks results in a 30% to 40% reduction in operating costs, overall construction expenses, and the demand for cement and steel. High insulation blocks contribute to a 30% savings in energy costs, and the longevity of wall painting and plastering is enhanced by minimal efflorescence in AAC, leading to lower maintenance costs (2018).
