Dura Fly Ash Bricks Stall in Budget Properties Expo
If you propose to build a home, you may consider using eco-friendly fly  ash bricks and save up to about 8% of the building cost.

An average house of 100 CFT will need nearly 1,550 clay bricks (conventional) of 230 mm x 75 mm x 100 mm size. If fly ash bricks are used, you will need only 1,325 of them. They come in sizes 400 mm x 200 mm x 150 mm. (9'' x 4 1/4 '' x 3 '')

Smaller bricks too are available. You can get the ones measuring 230 x 110 x 70 mm and bigger ones ideal for boundary walls (measuring 290 mm x 185 mm x 125 mm), the surface of which is smooth on two sides.

Fly ash, which is an industrial waste, can be utilised for various purposes such as making of bricks, blocks, concrete, tiles, kerb stones, paving slabs, survey pillars, door &  window frames, inter-locking bricks & flowerpots.

A fly ash brick contains fly ash to the extent of 60% and other components are gypsum, lime and coarse sand. Alternatively, they are made using the combination of fly ash, cement &  coarse sand.

The bricks are lighter in weight by 10% compared to clay bricks. It is said that fly ash bricks absorb less water compared to clay bricks (About 10 to 12% as against to 15 to 20%).

All the 6 six sides are even, you can save money as less mortar is consumed because they are uniform in shape and fewer bricks are used. You can also do without plastering the walls.

You get tiles too. They are manufactured in different sizes and colours with ash content being 35%. They are strong and less susceptible to scratches. They can be used for courtyards, pathways and are most suitable for footpaths.

Cellular Lightweight Concrete can be used for speedy construction and better insulation and they are economically suitable for multi-storey buildings. This is made by mixing foam in a slurry of cement, sand &  fly ash.

 Micro concrete roof tiles made of fly ash can be substituted for A.C.& G.I. sheets in industrial construction and roof tiles for slanted roofs. These are made with ash, cement, sand and micro stone aggregate 4mm.

Using fly ash products is eco-friendly because it reduces the use of cement which consumes a lot of energy and reduces the use of clay bricks, which consume fertile top soil. Clay bricks affect the quality of the land whereas the fly ash bricks do not require clay.
