ADVANTAGES OF AAC

AAC products are made using slurry mix containing cement, sand, lime and aerating agent. The slurry is poured and moulded to form lightweight blocks, panels and lintels upon which are cured in autoclave. The high-pressure steam-curing mechanism in the autoclave facilitates the curing process of the moulded lightweight concrete, producing physically and chemically stable products that weigh about 1/5 of normal concrete. AAC products contain millions of tiny non-connecting air pockets yielding superior thermal insulation property. AAC products are typically installed to form walls, floors and roofs.

AAC products are becoming the preferred building products for constructing residential, hotel, industrial and public buildings because of its natural composition and non-toxic property, saves energy and environmental friendly. AAC products possess the durability characteristics similar to normal concrete or stone, yet with workability better than wood.



icon-lightweight

Lightweight

Starken AAC density is about one-fifth of that of normal concrete blocks, making it easily handled.
icon-thermal

Thermal Comfort & Energy Saving

Starken AAC's excellent thermal insulation properties result in improved comfort level and saves heating and cooling costs.

icon-impact

Impact Resistant

Wall erected using 100 mm thick AAC products is classified as “Severe Duty” grade and able to withstand impact loads potentially resulting from rough usage.
icon-water

Water Resistant

Starken AAC contains millions of closed microscopic cells which strongly resist moisture from passing through.

icon-sound

Sound Resistant

Scientifically proven to provide better insulation to sound transmitted by air compared with other solid building materials.
icon-fire

Fire Resistant

More superior than traditional masonry for products with fire resistant up to 4 hours for a nominal block thickness of 100 mm.

icon-durable

Durable

History of usage dated more than 50 years protecting building envelopes and remain durable even under extreme weather conditions.
icon-cost

Cost-effective

Speed and ease of installation result in cost savings compared to traditional masonry construction.

icon-eco

Eco-friendly

Starken AAC to help reduce at least 30% of environmental waste, decrease 50% of greenhouse radiation and over 60% integrated energy on the surface of brick.
icon-dimension

Dimensional Accuracy

Blocks and panels are manufactured under factory environment using state-of-the art modern machineries resulting in products with tighter dimensional tolerances.
icon-good

Good Workability

Starken AAC can be easily sawn, cut, carved, nailed or drilled using ordinary hand tools.
