Global Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market: Overview
The autoclaved aerated concrete is a lightweight precast material used for constructional works. The autoclaved aerated concrete is also known as autoclaved cellular concrete. These types of concretes are light in weight, non-toxic, and inert hence has gained popularity as a green construction material. As the autoclaved aerated concrete consists of fly ash which accounts for 60% to 65% of the autoclaved aerated concrete structure, it is known as green construction material. The production of autoclaved aerated concrete is pollution-free and does not involve high energy requirement. The other benefit of using autoclaved aerated concrete is that it is very easy to work with as it can be easily chiseled, nailed, drilled, or sawed.
