Manufactured in India since 1972, in collaboration with International Siporex AB of Sweden. The unique flexibility, structural and physical properties of Siporex [Light weight Autoclaved (Steam Cured), Aerated (cellular) Concrete - AAC] are appreciated the world over and is the preferred building material. It is ideal for all types of climatic and seismic zones
Aerated Light Weight concrete is today recognized the world over as an environment friendly product due to its superior insulating and energy saving properties. Increased use of Siporex helps to conserve and protect our planet's forest cover.

Oven dry density of SIPOREX is 400 to 650kg/cum, i.e. just 1/4th the weight of dense concrete of 1/3rd the weight of conventional clay bricks.
Due to light weight, the dead loads on the foundation as well as on the supporting structure are reduced, thereby saving in concrete and steel.
SIPOREX products are highly fire resistant and offer twice the fire protection of concrete.
SIPOREX blocks are able to withstand the standard fire for 240minutes under load.
Cuts the peaks of heat and cold, provides economy in installation and working of air conditioning units.
K Value 0.122 Kcal/Hr/m°C makes it suitable as insulation material.
