Why use clc light weight bricks for constuction ?
« on: November 24, 2011, 03:11:56 PM »

www.sourceinfratech.comWhy use clc light weight  bricks or foam concrete bricks?
Clc is cellular weight blocks where we can use for load bearing structure and frame structure .its a other alternative for red brick and fly-ash bricks.Why

we use clc bricks?
1)Clc is a light weight brick  where water absorption is less compare to redbrick and fly-ash brick
2)High thermal insulation
3)Compressive strength is more than other bricks
4)environmental friendly
5)Quantity of cement is less when making a wall why because
6) clc bricks life span is more than other bricks

 Clc block size can make according to our requirements
In India generally block can make

Clc Size                      per cubic meter

4*8*24                      83 clc blocks

6*8*24                     55 clc blocks

9*8*24                     50 clc blocks  

If we take one clc block size              red bricks comes around for each clc block
4*8*24                                                7.1

6*8*24                                              10.6
How we compare clc bricks with red bricks when we meet customer ?

 If we take the size 4*8*24
market price now in India is 3500Rs per each  cubic meter

Red bricks market price now in India is  2357Rs per each cubic meter its varies city to city .
So  the first question comes from customer why i spend more money for clc bricks?

Here is the solution
Take an example:
 1 unit wall brick construction with  clc and red brick

 Clc bricks for 1 unit wall construction                     red bricks for 1 unit wall construction
Clc bricks for 1 unit wall construction    Red bricks for 1 unit wall construction
1) clc bricks for 1 unit wall around 75 bricks     1) red bricks for 1unit wall comes comes   around 560 bricks
2) quantity of cement and sand requires for motor 1unit wall  
cement : 1 bag  cement                        
sand     :  4bag sand
price : 300Rs for cement
          100 Rs for sand
----------------------------------
 Total  400 Rs/-    
-----------------------------------                                                  2) quantity of cement and sand requires for motor 1unit wall  
cement : 2.5 bag cement
sand     :  10 bag sand
price : 625 Rs cement
          250 Rs for sand
----------------------------------
 Total  875 Rs /-      
-----------------------------------  
3)     Plastering:  
 ½ inch   plastering is  Enough
Cement : 1.5 bag cement
Sand     : 6 bag sand
Price : 450 Rs for cement
          150 Rs for sand
----------------------------------
 Total  600 Rs/-    
-----------------------------------       3)     Plastering:  
1.5 inches plastering is needed
Cement : 3.5 bag cement
Sand     : 14 bag sand
Price : 940 Rs for cement
          350 Rs for sand
----------------------------------
 Total  1300 Rs/-    
-----------------------------------  

Total cost for plastering and motor joints For clc bricks
600 + 400 = 1000Rs

Total cost for plastering and motor  joints
For red bricks
         1300 + 875 = 2175Rs
Red bricks for 1 unit wall price is
 4 * 560 = 2240RsClc bricks for 1 unit wall price is
45*75    =3375Rs If we subtract clc price from red brick price
3375
2240
------
1135
Now add plastering and motor joints price
Ie 2175
    1135
---------
   3310
---------
So  at the end of the 1 unit wall construction the price we are spending for red bricks as almost same as clc bricks apart from that contractor can construct the building less time then red brick construction. So finally customer can happy
To get good product in the market to build is home

Note : The above calculation we are giving  for construction a building with clc its varies cities and cities .
