Aerated Autoclaved Concrete (AAC)
Precast concrete that is cured by steam pressure inside a kiln called autoclave. The material is lighter weight than conventional concrete and has good insulation properties.
Pros: This new, lighter type of concrete costs less to heat and cool.
AAC was invented in the mid-1920s by the Swedish architect and inventor Johan Axel Eriksson. His purpose for designing AAC was to reduce consumption of timber and provide a cheaper and sustainable building solution. Thanks to his efforts, we have with us a product that offers great opportunities to construction industry across the globe.
