Bricks and Construction

Bricks are crucial raw materials required in every type of construction work, but which type of brick one
should use in a specific type of construction work is important to know. Bricks come in different shapes,
sizes, and materials. Here’s all you need to know about bricks.

Burnt Clay Bricks

Burnt clay bricks are used for construction purpose. These bricks are generally made using moulds in
which clay is filled and dried and then baked or fired in the kiln. Burnt bricks are usually not visually
appealing, they need an application of plaster. They can withstand extreme heat and therefore use in
construction projects involving thermal, chemical, and mechanical stress.

They are pressed in the mould and treated by steam. The mixture after being pressed in the moulds treated in the high pressure steam autoclave. basement walls. Sand lime bricks are also a better option for load bearing construction projects.

They have the lowest risk of water absorption. These bricks are produced under high temperature. and damp-proof features. They are used in civil construction projects involving chemical resistance. The bricks used in construction should have uniform shape in order to provide a strong foundation. strength and other factors. There are different types of bricks but burnt clay bricks are considered perfect for the construction purpose. Bricks are selected based on their applications.
