Autoclaved vs non-Autoclaved

  • Does anyone know why Autoclaved aircrete is autoclaved? From what i can see the Autoclaved bricks are less strong but the non-autoclaved (the stuff we make) seems to flake. The autoclaved bricks break under less stress but they break clean. I'm wondering if that is why they are used as to not have crushed cement dust as I have. Just wondering if anyone knows why because the autoclave equiptment is very costly making the cost of the bricks too high. So why then?
