Description

AAC blocks, or Autoclaved Aerated Concrete blocks, are a type of lightweight precast building material that is made from cement, water, sand, and a small amount of aluminum powder. The mixture is then poured into molds and allowed to cure and harden through a process of autoclaving, which involves exposing the blocks to high-pressure steam.
