Aercon AAC Blocks vs. Clay Bricks
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete(AAC) Blocks are made out of Fly ash, Cement, Lime, Gypsum, Aluminium Powder & Water. Making these blocks does not cause any environmental pollution. Talking about AAC blocks, we can say that these blocks are smooth and almost 8 times bigger than the normal bricks and yet, lighter than the normal bricks by a huge margin.
The bricks made are of a typical size and they do not have much strength as compared to that of AAC blocks. These blocks manufactured by us at Aercon India are of lesser joints and hence require less of mortar. Let us look at the table to see how AAC blocks are different from the clay burnt bricks.
|Parameter||Aercon AAC Block||Clay Brick|
|Size||625x240x75 to 250mm
600x200x75 to 250mm | or as per customer requirement
|Precision in size||1.5mm( + )||5mm( + )|
|Compressive strength||3.0 to 4.0 N/mm2(IS 2185, Part-3)||2.5 to 3.0 N/mm2|
|Dry density||550-650 kg/m3(oven dry)||1950 kg/m3|
|Fire resistance||2 to 6 hour (Depending on thickness)||2 Hour|
|Sound reducing index||45db for 200mm thick wall||50db for 230mm thick wall|
|Mortar consumption per M3 with 1:6||0.5 bag of cement||1.40 bag of cement|
|Thermal conductivity||0.16 W/mk||0.81 W/mk|
|Maintenance||Less due to its superior properties||Comparatively higher|
|Energy saving||Approx 25% reduction in air conditioner load||No such saving|
|Construction speed||Very high due to bigger size, light weight||Comparatively lower|
|Quality||Uniform and finished||Normally varies|
