Bricklite is superior technology Light Weight Block, where natural aggregate (gravel) is exchanged for the best insulation medium available, namely air, embedded in organic and bio-degradable foam that offers no chemical reaction but solely serves as wrapping material for the air. Bricklite behaves, like conventional concrete, in particular concerning curing, hardening and most important agreeing Bricklite infinitely increases its strength by hydration (forming of crystals in cement) as long as exposed to humidity in the atmosphere.
For structural (steel-reinforced) application, Bricklite is used in densities of 400 to 1,800 kg/m, which, due to the billion of micro-sized and uniform air bubbles offer 500% more thermal insulation and a substantially higher fire-rating than conventional concrete. If a wall of conventional concrete should offer the same thermal insulation as Bricklite the wall produced would have to measures times thicker and therefore also use 10 times more material (sand, gravel, cement) to produce. Bricklite structures in for climatic zones require only 1/5th energy for air-conditioning when compared to traditional clay. brick structures.
Bricklite is excellent for strong yet light walls, noise Insulating walls and leak proof walls it is conventional concrete with a wide range of densities, choice of aggregates and min designs. This is an ideal situation for the manufacture of light commercial structures and factories as well as residential housing. With the rise in population and increase in constructional activities considering the improvement in the standard of living the demand for building bricks is increasing day by day.
Savings In Raw Material Bricklite product reduces dead weight of finer walls in framed structures by more than 50% as compared to brickwork resulting in substantial sayings. Due to the bigger and uniform shape of blocks, there is a saying in bed mortar and plaster thickness. Considering that a substantial amount of steel is necessary only to carry the weight of the structure, steel requirement might reduce by hundreds of ton in high rise.
