Stacking should be on dry and smooth surface so as to prevent them from the damage and contact with moisture.



2. Mortar for masonry

AAC mortar mix or cement: sand (1:6).





3. Wetting of block

Before application of mortar or usage dip the block in water and lift immediately.



4. Mortar thickness

team copy

Mortar thickness should be limited to 10-12 mm.





5. Coping beam

Coping beam with 2 no’s 8mm reinforcement After 1.2mts height





6. Curing of masonry walls

team copy

Curing is required for only mortar joints.





7. Cutting of blocks

team copy

For cutting of blocks use a hacksaw or rotary cutter or hand wood saw.





8. Lintel support

Minimum 150 mm support for lintels at both side. Lintels should be placed on mortar bed.





9. Electricity and sanitary changes

“When Safety is an issue AEROTUFF takes the heat”

“When Safety is an issue AEROTUFF takes the heat”

AEROTUFF AAC Blocks have the best in class fire resistance with a fire rating of 4-6 Hours, depending on the thickness of the blocks. It can resist the fire for longer hours thus causing less of damage and loss.homes built with AAc blocks provide higher safety against fire comapred to alternative materials

Build safer homes with aerotuff aac blocks.

It is more suitable for the areas which are more prone to fire.

The blocks are made up of inorganic material and hence they do not catch fire or emit toxic gases and conform to Class ‘0’ rating for spread of flame.

AAC is inorganic, incombustible and does not explode it is thus well suited for fire-rated applications.

These blocks are highly suitable for the areas where fire safety is of great priority.

Taiwan earthquake: Buildings tilt on sides

Taiwan earthquake: Buildings tilt on the sides.

This morning we all woke up to the scary news of earthquake in eastern coast of Taiwan At least six tall buildings were left tilting on their sides

According to a news:

“The safety of the building was called into question immediately after the disaster, when metal cans and foam were found to have been used as fillers”.

Let’s take a pledge not to mess with the safety of our lives, since the houses we live in and  the offices we work in are the places where most of the time of our lives is spent, so we need to be conscious of the safety of our buildings.

Buildings are majorly affected during the earthquake which leads to the major loss of life.

SO before starting the construction, the load bearing capacity should be checked and then structure should be designed accordingly.

After scrutinizing the land  AAC blocks should be used in construction instead of traditional bricks which lower down the weight of the building by 50%. Thus leading to much lesser damage to the buildings

The light weight of AEROTUFF AAC blocks reduces the mass of a structure, thus decreasing the impact of an earthquake on the building and hence offering enhanced safety against calamities like earthquakes, hurricanes, etc. As compared to structures built with heavy red clay bricks, fly ash bricks or concrete blocks.
