With the world moving towards better building materials, the demand for autoclaved aerated concrete panels and blocks is growing rapidly. The demand for quality coincides with an environmentally friendly process. Currently, there are many AAC panel plants, basically in every country.
Although the standards for producing AAC panels are about the same, there are still some differences in the quality of the products produced because of the different production equipment and technical strength used by each manufacturer. However, choosing the right AAC panel plant can be a simple job, just follow some tips below.
Aerated Autoclaved Concrete (AAC) panel is a new high-quality building material with a special combination of high strength, lightweight, thermal and acoustic insulation, fire protection, durability, economic efficiency and high workability. AAC products can be used in both interior and exterior buildings.
With dramatic cost declines, AAC panels have become a marvel of today's construction industry. The benefits are more than just materials, but in general, as described below
Reduced cost of gypsum
Reduced labor costs
Significantly reduced time required to complete projects
Smaller carbon footprint
Better protection against natural hazards
It is important to select the best plant to ensure that you receive panels that provide the above benefits.
The supply capacity of an AAC panel can be judged directly by the occupation area. AAC panels are not only customized products, but also need a 28-day maintenance period after production.
The longer the maintenance period, the higher the strength, the lower the moisture content, and the lower the chance of cracking in the later AAC panel walls. Therefore, the larger the land area, the greater the storage capacity and the greater the supply capacity.
In addition, the location of the plant is also an important consideration. This determines how easy it is to transport the product, how efficient it is, and ultimately how much it costs to transport.
Ecotrend is located in Sihanoukville Special Economic Zone, Cambodia. The company covers an area of approximately 25,000 square meters with a total investment of over 14 million dollars. The location of the company is superior with convenient transportation, only 20 minutes drive from Sihanoukville port. Thus, the excellent location and footprint give Ecotrend a unique advantage in terms of export.
Nowadays, the production equipment used by AAC panel plants is available both imported and domestic. A good production machine can greatly increase the quality and capacity of AAC panels.
For example, Ecotrend adopts a fully automatic production line made by Jiangsu Teeyer, which is one of the leading manufacturers of AAC production equipment in China, and also enjoys a good reputation in the global market. It can produce both AAC panels and blocks with an annual capacity of 400,000 cubic meters.
Moreover, when choosing an AAC panel plant, it is crucial to check its production capacity. Ecotrend, with an annual production capacity of 400,000 cubic meters, is the largest and only manufacturer of green prefabricated building materials, ALC panels, in Cambodia.
In an industry like construction, the quality of the product is very important and needs to withstand the test of generations. Therefore, whether an AAC panel plant can achieve excellent quality control is also one of the important factors to determine its merits.
A company that boasts an ISO certification, such as ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, is a sign of high standards. It confirms that the company adheres to processes and measures to maintain the high quality of its products by internationally recognized norms.
Take Ecotrend for example, it has been certified by both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. It uses fully automatic production equipment with high-quality rate and low scrap rate, there are also professional technical team to control the quality in the production process.
Ecotrend AAC panel production process:
Material preparation → Mixing → Casting → Static maintenance → Cutting → Steam maintenance → Discharging
Ecotrend's products comply with Chinese national standards and CE standards, we will do regular third-party testing of our products, generally CNAS and SGS in China.
Additionally, Ecotrend has professional quality inspection team and testing laboratory, after the production of AAC products, it will do quality testing in time to ensure that each batch of goods meets the plant standards.
In addition to the tips mentioned above, whether an AAC plant can provide good service and technical support is also one of the major considerations. If this manufacturer has pre-sale, in-sale and after-sale services, you will be more worry-free and have a better experience when working with it.
Ecotrend has a professional customer service team online to offer customers the full range of 24/7 pre-sale, in-sale and after-sale services. They are here to make sure that each requirement, question or complaint can be well taken care of on time.
Besides, Ecotrend also offers installation guide services. As part of large building and commercial facilities construction projects, we can provide ALC online installation guide, as well as in-house installation management service, to effectively meet on-site needs and ensure safety and quality.
