Should I Manufacture AAC blocks or CLC blocks?

Should I manufacture AAC blocks or CLC blocks?

Most frequent question people ask me is “Should I manufacture AAC blocks or CLC blocks?”. AAC as you all know stands for Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, while CLC stands for Cellular Lightweight Concrete. At times it is also called Foam Concrete as foam is added during production process. Essentially AAC and CLC are classified as Lightweight Concrete and may have similar properties at times. Although both these blocks look similar, there are big differences between them in terms of manufacturing equipment and raw material.

Should I produce AAC or CLC? Interesting question this one since answer to this question depends on various factors. Actually instead of asking me, they ought to do some research about it and then discuss it in detail. But sadly they don’t and that’s why I end up repeating same discussions with different people. To avoid that hassle I am working on a small guide that would highlight various aspects of production and compare AAC and CLC using reference points. This guide is meant to help an entrepreneur to decide on what suits him/her the best and plan accordingly. As I always say I can only show the path, ultimately you guys have to walk the walk. 🙂

Watch this space for promised guide. Coming soon!

  1. Sir i am interested in setting up a new business of manufacturing CLC according to budget , but when I start inquiring about CLC , that in coming future CLC won’t have any existence .
    So I wanna know up to how much is it true.

    • Dear Bhanu,

      Thank you for your response on our website. It is tough for CLC blocks manufacturer to survive in presence of full-scale AAC blocks plant due to economy of scale and quality issues. But if there is no AAC blocks plant in the general area, it is possible for CLC blocks manufacturer to thrive as CLC blocks are cost-effective compared to clay bricks in most areas.
