What is AAC? What are the properties of AAC? How AAC blocks are produced?

  Definition of AAC Blocks   AAC Blocks   A - Autoclaved A - Aerated C - Concrete   Autoclaved aerated concrete is a lightweight concrete containing uniformly distributed voids that is subjected to high-pressure steam curing.   Production of AAC Blocks   This is a light- weight building material produced by autoclaving a set mix of fine siliceous materials such as ground silica sand or flyash and the binders like Portland cement and lime. Lightness is achieved by incorporating a large proportion of closed microscopic pores in the slurry with the help of entraining or foaming agent. The basic raw materials are fine-ground sand or fly ash, cement, quicklime, anhydrite or gypsum, water, and aluminum  powder or paste as a rising component. A suitable mixture of these raw materials is poured into a mould, and the rising process starts due to the development of hydrogen gas formed by the reaction of aluminium in the alkaline suspension. After 20 to 40 minutes the maximum rising
