Advantages & Savings

Conventional BricksSanlight AAC BlocksWhat it means
Heavy/ClayLight weight. They are only 1/3 density of clay bricksa) The light weight and high structural integrity of the blocks reduces the waste of steel, thereby cost of construction.

b) The light weight facilitates easy movement of blocks around the site and shifting to higher level.

The normal size is 220- 230mm x 100- 110mm x 65-75mmWith accurate size. The standard size are
500mm x 100mm x 200mm
500mm x 150mm x 200mm
500mm x 200mm x 200mm
a) The bigger size makes their placement easy. Since there will be less number of joints there will be saving in cost of mortar and labor costs..

b) Projects can be completed faster. Faster completion time and less labor, result in substantial saving in the cost of the project.

Not workableThey can be cut, shaped, chiseled, and drilled with normal carpentry tools.a) You can obtain desired patterns and shapes.
b) Ducting for cabling and plumbing can be done with ease, speed and finesse
Vulnerable to vagaries of weather large variation due to composition and type of soils.highly durableNot vulnerable to water/rains. Unaffected by harsh climatic conditions. Strong for generations to come.
Wastage is as high as 10%Nil to 1% because the blocks are precisely machine cut. No wastageNo wastage.
Shall be plastered before paintingOnly a skim coat and paint

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC)

Sanlight AAC Blocks are manufactured from natural raw materials. The finished product is twice the volume of the raw material used, making it extremely resource-efficient and environmentally friendly.

What is AAC? And how it is made?

AAC also known as Autoclaved Aerated Concrete it is lightweight concrete and it has been widely using across the world. Autoclaved aerated concrete, or AAC is made by mixing cement, lime, fly ash, gypsum, water & aluminum powder the final mixture is poured in to a molds. The reaction between aluminum and lime causes micros pic hydrogen bubbles to form lower density concrete by expanding it. After evaporation of the hydrogen and initial setting, aerated concrete is cut into required sizes and cured by steam-curing in a pressurized chamber (an autoclave) or low pressurized steam chambers. The result is a non-toxic, high strength, light weight, airtight material that can be used for all walling and other applications. AAC is green building material that generates no pollutants or hazardous waste during the manufacturing process.
