In the modern construction industry, there is a new material that is widely used for its superior properties and cost-effective price. Such material is AAC panel. It is a porous concrete forming panel made of silica sand, cement, and lime as the main raw materials and is cured by high pressure steam.
It is used as a wall material and roofing panel, and is a new construction material with excellent performance. So, what are some benefits of AAC panels? The following is a brief introduction for you.
Transporting AAC panels is easier and less expensive because they are three to four times lighter than ordinary panels. Because of its lightweight, AAC panels can be used to build a higher building, allowing it to be constructed at a lower cost than concrete panels.
Field measuring, processing, and fabrication of aerated concrete lightweight wallboard allow for the construction of a single wall to be finished in a maximum of one day, with no wet field operation required. As long as the roughness mistake on the wall is not greater than 3mm, the wall can be painted directly after installation of the wall roughness error is complete.
AAC panels have a lightweight and porous construction that reduces sound. As a result, AAC panels are frequently utilized in the construction of studios, motels, and other healthcare facilities. AAC's confined air pockets make it a great sound barrier.
In masonry building, care must be made to eliminate gaps and unfilled seams that could allow undesirable sound transmission. A symmetrical hollow walls, when combined with an AAC wall,provide superior sound absorption and absorption capabilities.
Termites, rodents, and other pests can't live in AAC panels since they are made of inorganic elements. AAC panels are resistant to mold, insects, and pests since they lack the necessary conditions for their growth. Because it's made of inorganic materials, it's impervious to termites, rodents, ants,and other insects.This means it'll last longer and cost less to maintain.
Your home's interior and exterior can be affected by pests, especially in the corners of your bathroom, kitchen,and living room. Infestation of pests is exacerbated by changes in weather, and these pests may continue to spread across the same area of walls.AAC panels, which are effective and long-lasting, should be used in wall building to keep pests out and your walls safe.
The concrete is foamed with hydrogen, which gives it exceptional heat insulation properties, allowing for mild winter temperatures and cool summer temperatures. As a result, you should expect to save roughly 25% on your cooling bills.Because they require less energy to produce, AAC panels save energy over the course of their whole lifespan.
Because of its non-combustible nature, the AAC wall panel material provides fire resistance of up to six hours and 1,200 degrees Celsius over other building materials. As a result, it's critical for reasons of fire safety. AAC's thermal efficiency is very climate-dependent. AAC's thermal mass is mild due to the fact that it is made up of a mix of concrete and air spaces. It's best suited to hotter climates when cooling is a priority.
However, AAC can be suitable for climates that require higher amounts of thermal mass if utilized extensively (for example, internal walls and flooring). In comparison to other masonry,AAC has excellent thermal insulation properties,however additional insulation is typically required to meet National Construction Code criteria.
Standards As3700-2018 Masonry buildings and AS 5146.2:2018 are in accordance with Construction plans for a reinforced AAC block and panel include provisions for the use of this material. Houses up to two stories high may benefit from the load-bearing capabilities of external AAC panels, which are precast modules rather than block work.
In order to maintain structural integrity during construction and use, AAC panels and lintels include embedded steel reinforcing. AAC's porous nature makes it vulnerable to water intrusion, but with the right planning (damp-proof course layers and proper coating methods),this can be avoided.AAC does not decay structurally when exposed to dampness, although its thermal performance may suffer.
AAC panels are waterproofed with a variety of proprietary finishes. Before tiling in moist places like showers,they must be coated with acrylic polymer-based coatings. In order to achieve good water-repellent qualities, the manufacturer can provide advice on the right coating system, surface preparation, and installation instructions.
Another benefit of AAC panels is their portability, which reduces transportation expenses. AAC is one-fifth the weight of concrete and is available in a wide range of sizes. Compared to traditional block work,AAC panels are easier to work with but require extra attention during construction to prevent damage.
AAC blocks can be successfully laid by skilled bricklayers or carpenters. When using thin-bed mortar to lay block work, the dimensional tolerances are extremely tight. With AAC, there is less waste because the off cuts may be used to build walls. AAC panel construction is encouraged by good design that responds to the regime of specified panel sizes.
While the AAC panel is a porous material, it has outstanding impermeability due to its uniform, closed pores that are generated as a result of its suitable processing conditions, despite the fact that the material has few internal faults and micro cracks.
The AAC panels' impermeability is four times greater than regular bricks and two times better than other aerated concrete. In terms of aesthetics, AAC panels are preferred because of their long lifespan, high level of frost resistance, high softening coefficient, superior surface quality, and lack of cracking.
