AAC Block’s Advantages

Lightweight, Yet Extremely Strong and Durable

AAC manufacturing process creates an ultra light concrete (about 1/5 the weight of conventional concrete) with a unique cellular structure. A structure that doesn’t require major repair and renovation for a very long time. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete has proven to be a very durable material despite of its lightweight. Its, solidity comes from the calcium silicate that encloses its millions of air pores and from process of curing in a pressurised steam chamber, an autoclave. Its excellent mechanical properties make it the construction material of choice for earthquake zones.
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete structures have been used in many different climates worldwide, many over sixty years old in excellent condition. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete systems can save money, inconvenience, energy and other resources too. Parin AAC Blocks will not rot, wrap, rust, corrode, or otherwise decompose.

Simplified Construction

Parin Autoclaved Aerated Concrete unusual lightness greatly reduces the transportation costs required to deliver it to the job sites. Available as a pre-cast blocks in a variety of dimensions, Parin Autoclaved Aerated Concrete is engineered to precise standards at a state of the art facility located in Mashad, from Europe namely Germany. This ensures that when the materials arrive at site, they require less manpower to install and less to clean up after installations as the dimensions are accurate.

Builders enjoy how easy Parin Autoclaved Aerated Concrete products are to work with. Parin Products can be cut and shaped using basic wood working tools such as saw, hammer, nails, etc.
Many types of fasteners, connectors and anchors can be used with Parin Products. The resulting ease of assembly saves both time and money over other traditional masonry products.

High Thermal Insulation

Parin Block wall provides solid insulation, without the thermal bridging (cold spots) associated with through-wall framing members. Parin Aerated Concrete walls offer the advantages of minimizing thermal bridges through the ‘monolithic warmth-insulating’ properties of this supportive construction material. At the same time, high compressive forces are tolerated since Aerated Concrete is glued with Parin thin bed mortar. In combination with extra insulation techniques, the U-value achieved with these intrinsically insulating, supportive blocks is considerably better in comparison with traditionally masonry.

The Thermal efficiency of Parin Systems will also reduce the reliance on heating and cooling applications. The combined effects of running a heater less in winter and fan or air conditioning system less in summer can have a big impact on energy costs and the environment. In addition to greatly moderating the interior temperature, this allows energy consumption to be scheduled and shifted to off-peak hours, a benefit to power companies and home owners.

The warmth and moisture accumulating properties of the Autoclaved Aerated Concrete make a significant contribution to the occupants’ sense of well-being. Thanks to the properties of Parin Products, the surface temperature of the walls remains optimal for a longer period.

Fire Resistance

Safe materials are better materials. Due to it purely mineral composition, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete is not only non-combustible, it has the highest level of fire safety among all other traditional building materials. Parin Autoclaved Aerated Concrete blocks can withstand a fire up to 1200oC. A 10 cm think non-load bearing Wall, provides a U.L classified 4-hour fire rating. This far exceeds the requirements of the Standard building code, and provide significant level of protection against loss of life and property. Not surprising, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete’s insulating properties are superior to other materials.

Acoustic Insulation

Noise is a particular problem in modern living, for residents of homes and multi-residential building and for people working in commercial buildings. The solid wall construction of a building made of Parin Blocks provides exceptional acoustic insulation. It porous structure and high surface mass dampens mechanical vibration energy, greatly reduces outside noise pollution and indoor echo effect in empty rooms, providing a quieter, more comfortable interior for the occupants.

With sound insulation of Parin block walls, residents don’t have to worry about bothering other members of their household or neighbours – and they needn’t be annoyed by other people’s noises.

Seismic Design

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete has performed well for many years in seismically active regions around the world. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete buildings have shown good resistance to earthquakes forces. Parin Blocks are bonded together with Parin thin bed mortar creating a monolithic wall construction with an exceptionally tight bond, vertical and/or horizontal reinforcement for additional seismic resistance.

Resistance to Freezing

AAC usually posesses good resistance to freezing, which is proved by unrendered buildings, situated in areas where freeze/thaw cycles occur, remaining undamaged. This is caused by the introduced big spherical pores which are allmost closed, which causes a very little capillary suction and therefore the moisture content does not normally reach the critical degree. When AAC is exposed to driving rain, melting snow or ground water, the critical degree of saturation caber reached. In such cases the AAC has to be protected with a coating. For this purpose, silicones, silicon resins and silanes are mainly used as hydrophobing agents. Depending on the type of these agents they can be applied in the factory on site. If water- repelling agent is added to the AAC an additional risk is may occur if internal condensation cannot dissipate.

Impact Resistant

AAC blocks strength and porosity gives it greater resistance to impact damage and it will withstand any impact likely to occur under normal conditions.

Mold Resistance

Concerns of mold growing in our homes and commercial buildings are at an all time high. Mold spores are everywhere but require certain conditions to multiply such as a warm temperature, sustained moisture, and organic nutrients. Certainly there are many remedies and preventative measures that can be taken to avert the growth of mold in a structure. One of these is the use of Parin Blocks in the construction of both exterior and interior walls.

As such Parin Blocks is not a food source for termite and when using our single skin block walls, it will not harbour other pests.

Space and Style

As Parin Wall System is thinner than traditional masonry walls alternatives, they allow a greater internal living area for the same building dimensions and provide greater design flexibility. Parin Blocks walls can be coated with a variety of finishing materials to enhance its cosmetic appeals, its performance capabilities or both. Direct applications of breathable stucco or Parin Plaster, as well as other siding materials, are typical wall covering used.

What’s more, Autoclaved Aerated structural strength paired with its ability to be shaped easily makes it a uniquely creative material. Parin is an amazing versatile building material, with a surface finish that gives you the opportunity to achieve your own creative effects with an infinite pallet of colors and texture combinations while maintaining its inherent performance advantages.

Green Building

Autoclave Aerated Concrete is well known as an environmentally friendly construction material. By choosing Parin Products you can feel good in the knowledge that you have chosen a building material that is better for our environment.

Parin Autoclaved Aerated Concrete product main ingredients are sand, lime and water that are both natural and are found abundantly in nature. The energy consumed in the production process is only a fraction compared to the production of other materials. The manufacturing of Parin products emits no pollutants and creates no by products or toxic waste.
