The clc manufacturing helps in making blocks of concrete with less construction material. This enables to save on costs and also reduces the weight of the structures. Hence it becomes easy to transport, install and also rebuild the structures. Also it is environment friendly and also does not release any harmful effluents to water or air during its production.
This cellular lightweight concrete is made by making slurry of cement, fly ash and water in the same manner as normal concrete. This is then mixed with the addition of pre-formed stable foam in a concrete mixer under ambient conditions. The slurry is then poured into assembled moulds of blocks and is allowed to set for 18 to 24 hours.
When the block sets it is cured in a kiln and is then ready for use. It is used in many different applications due to its unique properties like thermal insulation, light weight, energy savings and sound proofing. This makes it ideal for use in partition walls which will help in reducing the demand for plywood partitions thus saving on deforestation and will also contribute towards green constructions.
Since its opening six months ago, the ATC has drawn interest from local business owners, high school students and community groups. For example, a welding program offered in partnership with Lake County Schools was moved to the new facility and now takes place during the day so high school students can attend. The ATC also houses a fabrication technology lab and industrial technology lab that allows students to work together on projects.
