Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) is a highly thermally insulated concrete-based material used for both internal and external construction. AAC has excellent thermal insulating qualities and is also easily installed. Another benefit is that it can be routed, sanded, and cut to size on-site using standard carbon steel tools.
Autoclaves are used to cure AAC using live steam. These autoclaves are usually very long in order to accommodate rail-car loading techniques. ASC designs and manufacturers AAC autoclaves for a many of leading AAC producers.
