Silicate products along with autoclaved aerated concrete are a healthy and ecological building material. Silicates and AAC are the effect of the reaction of the components from which they are formed under hydrothermal conditions. This process is called autoclaving from the name of the devices in which it runs. The tests have shown the effect of the tested additives on the particular properties of autoclaved lime-sand products and lime-sand-cement products. The addition of chalcedonite powder increased both the bulk density and compressive strength of lime-sand products and lime-sand-cement products. Composition modifications contributed to changing the microstructure of the products. In the samples with the addition of chalcedonite powder, fuller tobermorite crystals developed in comparison with the traditional sample. Additives contributed to changes in pore structure and size.
