Suitable raw material for AAC block plants manufacturing

Fly ash or sand

Key ingredient for manufacturing AAC block plants (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) is silica rich material like fly ash, pond ash or sand. Most of the fly ash brick plant in India use fly ash to manufacture AAC block plants. Fly ash is mixed with water to form fly ash slurry. Slurry thus formed is mixed with other ingredients like lime powder, cement, gypsum and aluminium powder in quantities consistent with the recipe. Alternately sand can also be used to manufacture AAC blocks. A ‘wet’ ball mill finely grinds sand with water converting it into sand slurry. Sand slurry is mixed with other ingredients just like fly ash slurry.

Limestone powder

Lime powder required for AAC production is obtained either by crushing limestone to fine powder at AAC factory or by directly purchasing it in powder form from a vendor. Although purchasing lime powder might be little costly, many manufacturers opt for it rather than investing in lime crushing equipment like ball mill, jaw crusher, bucket elevators, etc. like sand lime brick plant. Lime powder is stored in silos fabricated from mild steel (MS) or built using brick and mortar depending of individual preferences.


53-grade Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) from reputed manufacturer is required for manufacturing AAC block plants. Cement supplied by ‘mini plants’ is not recommended due to drastic variations in quality over different batches. Some AAC factories might plan their captive cement processing units as such an unit can produce cement as well as process lime. Such factories can opt for ‘major plant’ clinker and manufacture their own cement for AAC production. Cement is usually stored in silos.


Gypsum is easily available in the market and is used in powder form. It is stored in silos.

Aluminium powder/paste

Aluminium powder/paste is easily available from various manufacturers. As very small quantity of Aluminium powder/paste is required to be added to the mixture, it is usually weighed manually and added to the mixing unit.
