Advantages of YTONG Block
YTONG is a high-tech product that protects the environment and is used in a wide range of industries such as public works, industrial construction, civil housing, hospitals, hotels and schools. It can also be used in the building structure as external panels, floor panels and roof slabs. YTONG products have special characteristics such as:
Thermal Insulation:When used to build external walls, YTONG products meet all strict requirements made by various countries without use of any other auxiliary thermal protecting materials. Tests show that YTONG products with a thickness of 4-5cm perform the same function of thermal protection as one layer of common blocks; with a thickness of 7-8cm. YTONG provides the same level of thermal protection as bricks double the thickness. Therefore YTONG is not only a material that can be used to structures, it is also a high quality thermal material.
Accuracy：YTONG manufacturing technology and sophisticated equipment ensure dimensional accuracy with discrepancies within 1.0 mm on each face. Such performances outperform the national standard requirement.
High Load Capacity:Because YTONG products are cut on six faces with accuracy and installed by the use of a very thin layer of Mortar; this results in a high-strength product with hardness.
Convenient Construction：YTONG products can be sawn, drilled, nailed and machined using normal wood working tools. Also, simple construction details allow the designer, detailer and contractor to quickly and confidently complete the project without any anxiety over difficulty or voluminous details.
Moisture Resistance：The cellular structure of YTONG products are comprised of many independent, tiny and dispersed air spaces. Such a unique structure enables YTONG products to effectively prevent water from penetrating through it.
Fire resistance：The raw materials used in YTONG products are absolutely non-combustible. Experiment results show that 10-cm thick walls made of YTONG could stand against fire for at least 4 hours. Hence, YTONG products have been adopted to make fireproof walls.
Sound Insulation：Test results shows that YTONG products have excellent acoustic performance. Walls made of YTONG could reduce the noise range from 30-52dB depending on the thickness of the walls and different surface disposed.
Reduce the Cost：Costs can be greatly reduced due to the lower input on construction and better site management. As the product is environmentally friendly, very little cleaning work is required.
Green Design：YTONG product is by no means harmful to the environment. All the materials are completely natural.
