AAC is produced from the common materials lime, sand, cement and water, and a small amount of rising agent. After mixing and molding, it is then autoclaved under heat and pressure to create its unique properties. AAC has excellent thermal insulation and acoustic absorption properties. AAC is fire and pest resistant, and is economically and environmentally superior to the more traditional structural building materials such as concrete, wood, brick and stone.
At the point when AAC is blended and cast in structures, a few compound responses occur that give AAC its light weight (20% of the heaviness of cement) and warm properties. Aluminum powder responds with calcium hydroxide and water to frame hydrogen. The hydrogen gas froths and copies the volume of the crude blend making gas rises to 3mm (⅛ inch) in distance across. Toward the end of the frothing procedure, the hydrogen escapes into the air and is supplanted via air.
