LEICHTBRIC: Lightweight Block
AAC, the most innovative building material available in today’s market. The combination of light weight, strength, Fire resistant, thermal efficiency, cost effectiveness, and environmental qualities of LeichtBric AAC cannot be surpassed by any other building products.
Construction industries are ever changing, requiring building systems to be versatile, efficient, speed and cost effective. With the introduction of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete also known as Autoclaved Lightweight Concrete in the past decades, the construction industries begin to aware of the benefits by choosing AAC as their premier wall system.
LeichtBric AAC offers strong advantages over conventional building materials because of its exceptional product properties and ease of construction. It’s excellent strength makes it suitable for load bearing and non-load bearing structures, and perfect for all types of applications. With state-of-the-arts manufacturing facility located in Indonesia, LeichtBric AAC is becoming an important player for AAC in the South East Asia region.
History of AAC
AAC was developed by a Swedish architect, and was patented in 1924. The architect was looking for building material that had the properties of wood-good thermal insulation, solid structure, easy to work with and handle –but without the disadvantages of combustibility, decay and termite damage.
At that time there were only small, heavy building blocks with poor insulation properties. He succeeded in producing a highly cellular, lightweight material from quartzite sand, lime and water. This raw materials can be found in almost unlimited quantities throughout the world.
They are processed with cement and a rising agent to provide a building material with large number of air pores – aerated concrete. And it is precisely there pores, in addition to the solid structure of calcium silicate hydrates, which give LeichtBric AAC its exceptional product properties. 4>
