These blocks are then cut to size and formed by steam-curing in a pressurized chamber (autoclave). expanding the concrete. That gives the blocks its unique properties. Ecolite is an ideal building material for use in today’s times. Ecolite AAC blocks are made using Portland cement which is mixed with quartz (silica/PFA). Made from environmentally-friendly raw materials. . The result is a non-organic. non-toxic. poured into a mould. airtight material that can be used for walling.ECOLITE Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) blocks are brought to you by JVS Comatsco Industries Pvt Ltd. water and an aeration agent. The reaction between aeration agent and concrete causes millions of microscopic bubbles to form.

Although. . in India it has been introduced in the past two decades. making it extremely resource-efficient and environmentally friendly. ranging from wall and roof panels to blocks and lintels. it means reducing your construction’s impact on the environment as much as possible. sustainable. AAC is available in a variety of forms. The manufacturing process emits no pollutants and creates no by-products or toxic waste products. AAC blocks are manufactured from common and abundant natural raw materials. solid block that provides thermal & acoustic insulation as well as fire and termite resistance. It is an economical. AAC Blocks . The energy consumed in the production process is only a fraction compared to the production of other materials.A Green Building Component Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) block is well known as an environmentally friendly construction material.Sustainable construction There are many definitions to ‘Sustainable Construction’. while maintaining economy.
