Autoclaved aerated concrete panels (AAC panels) and ceramic concrete panels are both new lightweight building wall materials, and their construction& installation processes are basically the same.


However, there are still some differences between the two in terms of raw materials, internal structure, maximum height and primary uses.


1. Raw Materials


AAC panels are made of cement, lime, silica sand, etc. as the primary raw materials. Then according to the structural requirements, we configure to add different amounts of reinforcing mesh, followed by high temperature & pressure, steam maintenance and other processes, to produce autoclaved aerated concrete panels by reaction, which is a lightweight and porous new type of green building materials.


The ceramic concrete panel comprises cement, ceramic granules, sand, and cinder as the main raw material, plus the internal planting steel infusion mold. Through electronic metering and precise matching ratio, the round hole wall panels extruded by special machinery are raised by steam for 12 hours, and then cut into panels by marble slicing method.


2. Internal Structure

From the comparison shown in the above two pictures, it can be seen that the internal structure of AAC panels is solid reinforced panels while the internal structure of ceramic pellet concrete panels is hollow panels.


3. Maximum Height


The width of AAC panels and ceramic panels are the same, both are 600mm wide, and the thickness is similar, but their maximum heights are different.


The maximum height of AAC panels differs depending on the thickness of the panels. The maximum height of ALC panels of 150 thickness and above is 6 meters, while the maximum height of ceramic granule concrete panels is 3.5 meters.

5. Main Applications


Autoclaved aerated concrete panels (ALC panels) can be widely used in external walls, internal walls, floors and roofs of public and civil buildings, while ceramic concrete panels are mainly used in internal partition walls of buildings.


Advantages Of ALC Wall Panels In Different Stages


  • Design stage--ALC panels are highly standardized and can be cut to suit the actual situation, making them flexible in application and efficient in dismantling; moreover, this building material can also take into account external insulation and reduce the cost.


  • Production stage--ALC panels are commercially available products, which are easy to obtain and have sufficient supply.


  • Transportation stage--ALC panels are lightweight, so they can save space and greatly improve transportation efficiency.


  • Installation stage--ALC panels are installed with high efficiency, and are environmentally friendly. They are simple to install, easy to construct on-site and only need small lifting equipment support.


Conclusion


In conclusion, this blog introduces the differences between ALC panels and ceramic concrete panels, both of which are popular new wall materials on the market. You can choose the most suitable building materials based on a comprehensive analysis of usage and cost.
