Light Weight Bricks Making Machine !!!
I was given the opportunity to meet a manufacturer of a simple machine that can produce the right mixture of cement, sand and a special foam to making those lite bricks.
These bricks will be very suitable for stand alone BHs or use in shop house as those walls.
The best is to shape the brick into 2 feet long by 8 inches width and 6 inches thick.
You can increase or decrease the size to your preferred sizes.
What I know is that once cured the brick will be very strong and lite. If you drop the brick into a pail of water it will float.
The cost of materials per brick will be about RM 1 for a 4 inches thick and RM 1.5 for the 6 inches thick plus labor, petrol and machine depreciation.
If you purchase these bricks from any hard ware shop it will be about RM 4.50 for a 4 inches thick or RM 6 for the 6 inches thick.
One drum of 146 liters foam will cost about RM1,900. Per drum you can produce about 50,000 bricks (subject to the ratio mixture)
The machine cost was said to be only RM 25,000 ex Kuala Lumpur. The technology transfer in applying the right mix will be another 12,000 for 60 hours of coaching at site (excluding meal, ticket and lodging)
To those who plan to build a multiple units of stand alone BHs, this will be one of the best option is reducing the unit cost of the building.
Yes you manufacture the bricks yourself at site. The properly cure the bricks you need to give at least 12 to 18 days.
It is not a rocket science but simple and effective if you think deeper about it.
If you interested to purchase the unit please call 017 755 1318
