With a very long life expectancy (well in excess of the Green Guide to Housing Specifications 60 year building life),aircrete is a durable material that does not give off any harmful substances or require preservatives to maintain performance.

It does not rot or burn. It is resistant to sulfates and the effects of freeze/thaw cycles and it cannot be attacked by pests such as termites or vermin.

Aircrete's environmental credentials extend to its eventual recycling at the end of a building's life. As well as being an inert material that will far outlast the usual 60 year design life expectancy of a building, aircrete is easily recyclable, and can be crushed down with other masonry materials and used in future applications.
