CLC blocks are high in quality and low in price.
CLC is called as Cellular Light Weight Concrete and it is also called as Foam Concrete. Cellular Light Weight Concrete (CLC) is a version of light weight concrete that is produced like normal concrete under ambient conditions. CLC Blocks are a cement-bonded material made by blending slurry of cement. Stable, pre-formed foam manufactured on site is injected into this slurry to form foam concrete. Fresh foam concrete looks like a milk- shake and the volume of slurry in the foam dictates the cast density of the foam concrete.
ALM DURABUILD CLC BLOCK ADVANTAGES
Highly Water Soluble and Miscible.
Bio – Degradable.
Contains Peptides of different molecular weights.
Produces stable and homogenous air bubbles
Foam gross density adjustable 20 80 kg/m3.
Concrete gross density adjustable 2000 200 kg/m3.
Highly-active, foam-forming proteins gives long-term foam stability.
Highly active proteins with enzymatic active components due to nanotechnology
Cellite CLC Blocks are manufactured as per BIS Specification IS 2185
Less than half the weight of Clay bricks or concrete blocks
Better suited for low soil bearing capacity
Higher Seismic stability
Suitable for construction of unplanned extension or partition walls
The cellular structure of Cellite CLC Blocks absorbs the heat and reduces the transmission of heat. Lesser internal heat reduces Air-condition load and saves Electricity..
Low Water Absorption:
Less than 12% water absorption compared to 50 t 80% of Bricks and other blocks.
Helps reduce dampness, increases life of internal paints and saves maintenance cost.
Increased carpet area:
Optimum width results in increased carpet area when compared to brick walls.
Availability through all seasons:
Featherlite is available all year round, even during monsoons when the availability of the fire clay bricks is not consistent
Quick and easy assembly:
Being larger in size, Featherlite blocks speeds up the construction process and makes it simpler.
Superior sound insulation:
Acoustic properties of Featherlite are superior compared to other walling materials.
Featherlite blocks are Green Blocks. No Green house gases are emitted during the manufacturing process. Valuable top soil is also not consumed.
Superior fire safety:
Cellite CLC Blocks offers fire endurance for 4 hours without releasing any toxic fumes during the fire.
Reliability and quality constistency:
State of the art ensures that Featherlite blocks have consistent dimensions & strength.
Ease of handling:
Easy Chase Cutting,Easy Nail-ability,Easy Handling
MAIN FEATURES OF CLC BLOCKS, PREFAB ELEMENTS & IN-SITU MOULDED HOUSING :
CLC Blocks are very light in weight – Density ranging from 400 to 1200 Kg/m3 can be produced as required.
CLC Blocks are excellent for Earthquake Resistant Housing due to light weight – reducing dead weight by more than 50% of the normal concrete. Multi-Storey high rise towers constructed has saved cement and steel to large extent, which can be verified on STAAD-III Computer Programme
CLC Blocks have good capability for fire insulation — Thermal conductivity of foam concrete achieved is between, 0.05-0.15 Kcal / mh ?, which is 20-30 times higher, than normal concrete.
CLC Blocks have good capability for sound insulation — Foam concrete contains large amount of bubbles, by which the acoustic insulation is about five times higher, than ordinary concrete.
CLC Blocks are fireproof. — The foam concrete ingredients satisfy the general requirements of fireproofing.
CLC Blocks are Environmental friendly.
CLC Blocks have flexibility in manufacture and application and can be made according to the established parameters to meet specific requirements.
CLC Blocks are excellent for Thermal and Sound insulation which keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter saving energy/electricity for cooling and heating.
CLC Blocks are “Environment-friendly” using more than 30% of “Fly Ash” from Thermal Power Stations and converting directly into valuable Building Materials. CLC Blocks will also replace “Clay Bricks” which is destroying Agricultural top soil. Our Technology will save Environment and Ecology from the hazardous & polluting material – Fly Ash and prevent destruction of Valuable Agricultural Land.
CLC Blocks Production Plant can be Stationary or Mobile Unit – to be mounted on truck to manufacture CLC Blocks, Prefab reinforced Building Elements, and In-Situ Moulded Housing at site, will save breakage, transport charges and delay, etc.
CLC Blocks being light weight the handling and transportation is easy. The construction speed is 2 ½ times more than the Clay Bricks construction.
CLC has basic raw material of Cement for the appropriate strength and hence the strength is increasing every year on Aging of the Concrete.
CLC Blocks Production Plant, Machinery, and Equipment besides critical raw-material-Foaming Agent are manufactured in India and hence no imports are involved.
CLC do not require stone aggregates and the Slurry of Cement, Sand, Fly Ash, Foam and Water can be pumped easily in length and height.
CLC is excellent for Snow bound Cold Regions/Zones and also for hot climate Desert Zones for the comfortable living. CLC Blocks can be produced in the remote Snow bound areas by our Mobile Production Unit. CLC Blocks can be transported by Mules to difficult terrains since the material is light weight
CLC is excellent Fire Retardant and can be used for firefighting operations in Coal Mines, Forests, etc.
CLC is excellent for Roofing Thermal Insulation and sound Insulation for Floor Slabs.
CLC is best for Trench Reinstatement, Void filling, Bridge Abutment, Tunnel work, and Floor Construction.
CLC is also suitable for Soil Stabilization, Road Foundation, Land Reclamation, and Harbour Fills.
CLC is excellent for Fire Breaks in the Buildings.
CLC is most suitable to construct Sound Barriers at the Air Port to prevent Noise Pollution while landing and Take-off.
