The advantages of handmade bricks we have written many times. We know and appreciate bricks for thousands of years. In this article we will focus on the types of solid bricks. Briefly characterize each of the popular groups of bricks.
Types of solid bricks
they can be divided according to a wide variety of parameters, factors and aspects. Generally, we can divide them into: dried bricks, tiles, lime-sand, fireclay magnetized and clinker.
Solid bricks – bricks dried
The oldest type of brick. Currently rarely used because of its performance. Brick dried easily absorbs moisture, and has a low resistance to mechanical damage. It is as solid brick.
Solid bricks – ceramic bricks
Versatile and attractive in terms of price and strength building material. It is performed with moraine clay, ribbon, loess or shale. Additionally, you can put in the dried scrap or quartz sand.
Solid bricks – Brick-lime
The combination of the burnt lime and quartz sand wherein the quartz sand of more than 90% by weight of the bricks. Brick is produced in the process of autoclaving, which is subjected to thermal treatment at elevated pressures. In this way the weight of the bricks is strongly complex. It is a brick cheap and resistant to mechanical damage, frost and weather conditions. Sand-lime brick is a solid brick.
Solid bricks – bricks Fireclay
Fireclay refractory suitable for lining furnaces or interior design fireplaces. Its properties owes burn at very high temperatures.
Solid bricks – bricks magnetized
This type of solid brick is created from inorganic, organic and compound magnesite. It is heated at 700 degrees Celsius. It has up to three times more heat accumulation capacity of firebrick.
Solid bricks – clinker brick
An improved version of the faced brick. Clinker brick because of its high compressive strength and low water absorption ideally suited for lining reservoirs, sewers and other structures having direct contact with water. Is fired at a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius and is formed from a mixture of sand and clay.
Solid brick – application
It is used to build walls, construction, curtain and generally to create the walls of both internal and external. While the bricks with holes are lighter, so much brick full of much better suited for building foundations and structures subjected to high loads.
