ECA ® Construction Blocks
Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA ®) BLOCKS are masonry units manufactured using Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA ®), Class F fly ash, and Cement. They are used for non-load-bearing wall masonry.
After the application of a high-performance innovative technology of manufacturing and post-curing process, Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA ®) BLOCKS gains superior material properties.
It also offers no reduced shrinkage and a superior fire and chemical resistance adding to several advantages including durability, versatility, speed, and ease-of-use as well as cost benefits and environmental considerations.

We often see customers having questions before finalizing the construction materials or while looking for lightweight concrete blocks suppliers. Common questions that come to mind during the selection of lightweight concrete blocks for their construction are how much does the concrete blocks cost? Or what is the size of a concrete building block? Are there any lightweight concrete blocks suppliers situated in their area? Or is there a difference between the cinder block and concrete block? Or is there a supplier with cheap concrete building blocks for sale?
The long wait is overlooking the solid lightweight concrete blocks in India. The solutions to all are Expanded Clay Aggregate Solid Construction Block.
For the 1st time in India, concrete building blocks are offered which are not only lightweight concrete blocks but are also falling in the premium segment of solid construction blocks. They are manufactured using Expanded Clay Aggregate.
Expanded Clay Aggregate blocks are manufactured in India for the 1st time. They are also known as ECA® blocks or lightweight expanded clay aggregate blocks worldwide. These ECA® blocks or expanded clay aggregate solid construction blocks use a special type of expanded clay aggregate which is formed by firing the natural mining clay at 1200 °C in a rotary kiln. The result is a hard honeycomb structure of interconnecting voids. These concrete building blocks made of expanded clay aggregate enhance the internal curing and enhances the compressive strength to arise over time. ECA ® blocks or ECA® blocks manufactured in India are the best choice for construction which offers design flexibility combined with excellent thermal and acoustic properties. They are easy to nail, drill, shape, and chip and unlike other conventional building blocks, they do not get the plaster cracks on them due to a strong bonding property with regular cement mortar.
ECA ® Solid Construction Blocks fall in a premium segment out of all the construction blocks types available in the market in India. They are the most preferred green blocks for construction. Out of the entire segment of the building blocks for construction which also include the cement blocks for construction, clay blocks for construction, CLC blocks, construction bricks, construction cement bricks, aac blocks, construction fly ash bricks the lightweight Expanded Clay aggregate are the most sought after lightweight construction blocks.
What are lightweight concrete blocks used for:
The Expanded Clay Aggregate lightweight blocks are used in both internal and external walls where loading is slightly more restricted or as infill blocks in beam and block flooring. They are also used for the shallow foundations, the construction of partition walls, and panel walls in frame structures. Being a strong concrete block with their properties of durability and strength, they are typically selected for non-load-bearing walls. Often chosen for infill, lightweight blocks offer greater savings in time and cost, but are less strong compared to dense concrete blocks. A lightweight expanded clay concrete block is a concrete masonry unit made of expanded clay aggregate to reduce the density and weight compared to a standard concrete block.
Preference of customers in India :
Most of the customers who are seeking the bricks for construction for their new projects are shifting to this new innovative technology of Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA ®) Lightweight Construction Masonry Blocks. Construction with bricks is a most traditional way and comparing the benefits that the Construction blocks manufactured with Expanded Clay Fly Ash and Cement offer, architects and structural engineers make it a point to include the same in their design scope.
Due to the innumerable benefits including, being light in weight, high compressive strength, excellent fire rating, high thermal and sound/acoustic insulation, solid construction block, no coping requirements for horizontal and vertical up to 10 to 15 feet of masonry, saving of mortar expenses, saving of labor cost and many more added advantages, they are preferred for the brick wall construction, exterior walls, interior walls, exposed walls, in place of construction fly ash bricks, construction cement bricks out of several other construction bricks types available in the market.
For your requirement of construction light weight bricks or lightweight blocks for construction - ECA ® Solid Construction Blocks are the only and the best choice. Contact us today.
