Frequently Asked Questions:

What are the advantages of using Puzzolana Green Bricks?

The main advantages of our bricks are listed below: 
  • High Compressive Strength: Our Bricks composition, ensure that we achieve compressive strengths of 75-100 kg/sq.cm and above, which is 2-3 times the products in the market. Our fly ash bricks can be used in load bearing walls, with the guidance of Structural Engineers and Architects. 
  • Environment Friendly: Our brick uses unfired Fly Ash technology hence the CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process are limited. Further use of our bricks helps in conservation of precious top-soil.
  • Excellent Thermal Insulation: The buildings using fly ash bricks are cool in summers and warm in winters. The high insulating property, with low embodied energy, of our products reduces the energy consumption of the buildings significantly by as much as 40-50%. 
  • Excellent Sound Insulation: Fly ash bricks are sound absorbent and restrict sound transmission keeping the interiors very pleasant and quiet. 
  • Fire Resistance: Fire resistance of fly ash bricks is very high as these bricks are composed of fly ash as its major constituents, which is the un-burnt residue of the coal fired in a thermal power plant. 
  • Nil Efflorescence: Fly ash bricks resist salt and other sulphates attack, ensuring no efflorescence in the structure.

What is the percentage of recycled materials in your bricks?

More than 75% (by weight) post-industrial recycled materials are used in the manufacture of our bricks. Fly-ash is a thermal power plant waste product and the Lime used in our bricks is also considered an industrial waste.
