MagicBlox AAC Blocks



What are AAC blocks?
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) blocks are lightweight and durable building products. First conceptualized and invented by Swedish architect and inventor Johan Axel Eriksson in 1924, AAC blocks are particularly known for their fire, heat, and sound-resistant properties. Air being the major constituent (almost 80-85% by volume), these building products are typically lightweight, weighing only a third of the more common red clay bricks.

How are they made?
Common ingredients used in the production of AAC blocks include lime, cement, sand, water, gypsum, fly ash, and Calcium oxide (commonly known as quicklime). Aluminum powder reacts chemically with these and hydrogen gas escapes into the air towards the end of the procedure. It is this chemical reaction that lends AAC blocks their distinct honeycomb structure, lightness, and other insulation properties.
Having undergone necessary molding and mixing, these are further cured in an autoclave (subject to high heat and pressure) that imparts them the desired strength and durability.

What are the advantages of using AAC Blocks?
On an average, AAC blocks are 9 times the size of regular clay bricks. This translates to superior construction speed and quality, coupled with the formidable reduction of costs - on plaster and mortar - at the site. Importantly, best-in-class thermal insulation results in increased savings of Heating, Ventilation, and Air-conditioning (HVAC) costs.

Because of its high workability and flexibility standards, AAC material is widely used across the construction of residential buildings, healthcare facilities, schools, hotels, and other industrial/commercial structures

Deflection of beam, soil settlement to one side, uneven placing of blocks during construction are some reasons of wall cracking. Structural Movements due to Thermal Expansion or change in moisture content or moisture movement. To overcome this, AAC blocks must be used delayed till equilibrium moisture content. For this purpose AAC blocks must be stored 10-15 days prior to application. Deflection of beam, soil settlement to one side, uneven placing of blocks during construction are other reasons. Cracks are appeared in all type of concrete including clay brick. By using some construction techniques and proper workmanship we can minimize these cracks. Levelling of blocks should be accurate and must be checked using Spirit level preferably of 2 met length. First Course of Blocks should be given sufficient time to set and at least 24 hours must be given. Framed Structure should be given enough time to cure and settle so that any change in structure due to structure movement can be noticed. Control Joint of 10 mm must be given after every 3 meter from bottom to top of wall. Control joint must be filled with some resilient material or backer-rod which are more easily compressed. And seal with caulking. Expansion Joint Ties must be given after every 3rd course and placed between gaps of control joint. Bond beam must be given after every 1200 mm in height using reinforcement of two MS rods of 8 mm tied with 6-8 mm steel with a gap of 6”-9”. Minimum thickness of bond beam must be taken 3” with concrete cover 15-20 mm on sides. Bond beam must be discontinuous at control joint. Steel rods must be embedded in column 5-6 times of its diameter and fixed using non shrinkable high strength grout. Mortar Mix for filling the bond beam can be taken as Cement: Sand in the ratio 1:4. Purpose of bond beam is to give Stability and Strength to the wall. After every 3rd course, Wall ties must be used between block and Concrete column.

You can use AAC Blocks to construct all type of wall between two columns in framed structure like partition wall, curtain wall, balcony wall, boundary wall.
