Being light weight AAC drastically reduces the weight of the building, Resulting into reduction in steel (up to 27%) and cement (up to 20%) structural cost savings. Being 8 times the size of a clay brick, AAC wall construction involves 1/3rd of the joints thus an overall mortar savings up to 66%.
High pressure steamcuring autoclaving process gives AAC blocks unmatchable strength to weight ratio, higher then even M 150 concrete and far exceeds the indian building code Requirements.
Earthquake forces on structure are proportional to the weight of the building hence light weight blocks show excellent resistant to Earthquake force. Regions of high seismic activities like japan exclusive use AAC blocks. Its has been proven to withstand wind loads of category 5tropical stormes.
Its unique cellular structure provides excellent fire rating Due to this cellular structure AAC blocks do not disintegrate even in fire rating of 4 hours. The melting point of AAC blocks are over 1600c.
With solid wall construction and finishes, there are fewer if any, cavities for insects and rodents to dwell in. Termites and ants do not eat or nest in AAC blocks, being made up of inorganic mineral, AAC blocks do not promote growth of molds.
Microscope structure of lightweight blocks does not allow for capability action making it impervious to water barrier properties are further enhanced by adding silicon based additives.
