OC blocks have natural acoustic insulation due to its aerated structure and has superior sound absorption properties in comparison with other materials. It reduces outdoor noise pollution and also saves costs by reducing costs of noise and echo proofing materials.
OC blocks have much lower water retention or capillary action compared to the conventional bricks. OC blocks are also termite, pest, mold and fungus resistant and hence greatly improve the indoor air quality.
OC products have proven earthquake resistance due to its light weight and porous structure. The structure has millions of tiny cells which cushions buildings from major force, preventing progressive collapse. Thus it saves lives and response time for rescue operations during earthquake.
It is easy to install with precision. It can be sawn, drilled, nailed, grooved etc on site by Masons using simple working tools. Thus it saves on expensive labor cost as it does not require extra skillful and paid masons or hi-tech tools.
OC uses the least amount of energy to produce than any other masonry building material. The manufacturing process is such that negligible gaseous, liquid or solid waste is released into the environment.
Moreover Fly Ash [a waste product during Thermal Power Generation) is the MAJOR raw material consisting 6O-7O% of the total weight.
Thermal Power plant waste is effectively used unlike brick manufacturing which degrades and erodes agricultural land, which is already a precious commodity in a highly populated agro based country like India.
