Technology is improving each day. The modern approach towards finding a solution to the very common to very complex problems has given rise to many inventions around us. Today’s article is all about a new type of building block, the AAC blocks in Nepal.
As we can see, things around us have changed a lot. And we all know, back then, stone, mud, and clay used to be the major construction materials. And now different types of blocks are used along with concrete mixture to build strong constructions.
AAC blocks are a modern way of building structures. AAC stands for Autoclaved Aerated Concrete which is a lightweight, precast foam concrete building material. It composes of quartz sand, calcite gypsum, lime, cement, water, and aluminum powder. AAC block is prepared under heat and pressure in an autoclave.
More about AAC Blocks
Furthermore, AAC was introduced in the mid-1920s by the Swedish architect and inventor Dr. Johan Axel Eriksson working with Prof. Henrik Kreuger at the Royal Institute of Technology. The process was patented in 1924 and in 1929 production started in Sweden.
Certainly, AAC block has a future in Nepal too. We can see new constructions using AAC blocks as well. Simultaneously, AAC provides structure insulation, sound, fire, and mold resistance. Forms include blocks, wall panels, and roof and floor panels. AAC is suitable for both interior and exterior construction.
The major benefit of using AAC blocks in construction is that it provides high insulation properties and helps in saving energy by almost 30%.
Features of AAC Blocks
- The blocks have almost zero efflorescence effects that let wall painting and plastering serve last longer resulting in low maintenance cost.
- The blocks are sound, fire, and heat resistant.
- The lightweight of the block provides more durability, flexibility, and workability.
- AAC materials can be routed, sanded or cut to the desired size using standard power tools with carbon steel cutters.
- If we use a bigger size of AAC bricks, it will take fewer bricks than other types of bricks.
