Overview

ACICO extends its reach to serve more customers, and extends the product line in order to create new options. This enables the take on of practically any project in the region, and to deliver a volume and variety of products that most competitors simply cannot match.

ACICO is the largest manufacturer of Aerated Autoclaved Concrete across the Middle East, producing (amongst other related products) its signature tongue groove interlocking heatproof blocks – an improved option for quality at huge economic savings to meet client needs and solidify proven market leadership and competency.

Products and Services

Aerated Autoclaved Concrete (AAC) 

The modern, environmentally responsible alternative to stone blocks – AAC is an economical, sustainable, solid block that provides thermal and acoustic insulation as well as fire and termite resistance.

Preferred for their light weight and cost effective long term usage, they are an integral part of ACICO’s patented Building System. With the ability to produce sections of AAC in different dimensions for blocks, panels, lintels, slabs and reinforced structural components with different characteristics, ACICO leads this industry across the region with manufacturing presence in Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

ACICO takes pride in the highly automated manufacturing process which incorporates the technological innovations such as 'Horizontal Autoclaving'; capable of delivering unmatched consistency in its products quality no matter the dimensions of the block. Along with such unique features as the Tongue Groove profile, ACICO is quite simply, a generation ahead of others.

Characteristics of AAC Products 

Thermal Insulation

Heating and air-conditioning are major cost factors in the operating expenditures of any type of building. Because of its unique physical structure, AAC provides much greater thermal insulation than conventional masonry. A bare 25 cm thick AAC wall actually provides the same thermal insulation value like wall of cement blocks with a thickness of 270 cm.  

Fire Resistant 

AAC is non-combustible and emits no toxic fumes when exposed to fire. These properties make AAC the perfect building material to withstand the stringent requirements of building codes. It increases the safety of the building’s occupants and can potentially lower insurance rates. AAC can be used as cladding to protect other materials such as steel or to increase the fire rating of concrete walls. AAC is non-combustible with a fire rating of 6 hours on 200mm thick AAC unit.  

Speed Construction 

Panelized AAC products have the dramatic impact on the material’s rate of installation. Wall and floor panels are both easy to use and quickly installed, thus enabling a crew to install more than four times the area of AAC than that of a regular masonry application in the same period of time.

 Pest Resistance 

Termites cause millions in damage every year to all types of buildings because AAC is impenetrable by insects, it eliminates this risk, saving potentially tens of thousands of dollars in termite control and repair costs. AAC is impervious to attack by insects and termites.  

Workability 

Although AAC is as strong and sustainable as conventional masonry, it is more easy work with as wood. All AAC products can be easily cut and crafted with common hand tools (power tools may be required to cut reinforcement). The ability to readily make straight cuts reduces time and waste in site alterations. AAC is also lightweight, AAC weights one fifth of standard concrete products and AAC is easy to handle, which reduces labor costs and construction time.  

Environmental Credentials 

AAC products are manufactured using all natural resources with no harmful emissions of toxic chemicals, AAC products are completely environmentally compatible. The AAC production process requires much less energy to complete than that of other materials and the product’s outstanding energy efficient qualities makes it an excellent source of ongoing environmental conservation. AAC qualifies as a “green” building material and in the manufacturing process generates less than 1.5% waste with over 1% of this being recycled and used in other manufacturing or industrial processes. 

Acoustic Insulation

 AAC has been shown to provide good sound insulation and makes it ideal for construction projects like apartments, hotels, and public buildings. Since its porous internal structure is comprised of 60-70% air, effectively reducing sound wave transmission. Typical STC rating is 50/52 for 500/600 density blocks or panels (db. 50-55) tested in accordance with ASTM E90 and classified in accordance with ASTM E413.  

Moisture/Water Resistant

 AAC has a water absorption coefficient of 4kg/m² x h0.5. Weather and moisture resistance is achieved with a final surface treatment such as stucco, plaster and paint, or cladding such as bricks and/or other exterior materials. AAC has excellent structural integrity which resists high winds and violent storm. AAC products are very durable and will not degrade under normal climatic conditions. They have outstanding durability characteristics over traditional materials relative to humidity, freeze/thaw cycles and chemical attack.
