أسمنت معالج مشبع بالهواء
Explanation:
AAC أسمنت

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC)
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a mixture of portland cement, quicklime, sand, water and aluminum powder. The chemical interaction of these “aerated" natural materials creates a porous, closed cell masonry material with a density of approximately forty-five (45) pounds per cubic foot, roughly one-third the weight of stone concrete. A high temperature, high-pressure steam cure in an autoclave speeds additional chemical reactions, which allow the AAC to reach full strength in less than twenty-four (24) hours. AAC is easy to use on a job site and provides excellent sound proofing and fire protection.
