Advantages and disadvantages of fire clay brick

According to production process, fire clay brick is divided into machine made brick and handmade brick. According to structures, fire clay brick is divided into solid brick and hollow brick, and hollow brick can be divided into load-bearing brick and nonbearing brick. Fire clay brick is made at different shapes according to different using requirements.

Advantages of fire clay brick:

1.Fire clay brick is environmentally friendly and belongs to resource recycling bricks, so we can rest assured use fire clay brick. Fire clay bricks won’t be harmful to our health.
2.Fire clay brick has advantages of fireproof and heat insulation. Used clay brick can be used as concrete so that to save a lot of resources.
3.The price of fire clay brick is not as expensive as that of other fire bricks. Light weight brick is more expensive than fire clay brick. Besides, fire clay brick is very cheap and very durable.

4.Fire clay brick has good moisture-proof function, it also has the advantages of fire insulation, heat insulation and moisture absorption.

Disadvantages of fire clay brick:

1.Clay brick is made of concrete and is much heavier than other masonry materials. It will make the whole building bear more weight, and it will increase the cost of the whole project.
2.Clay brick’s soundproof effect is poor. When outside sound spreads into clay brick, because it doesn’t have a lot of air holes, it can’t isolate the sound very well.

What is fire clay bricks?

A fire brick, firebrick, fireclay brick, or refractory brick is a block of ceramic material used in lining furnaces, kilns, fireboxes, and fireplaces. A refractory brick is built primarily to withstand high temperature, but will also usually have a low thermal conductivity for greater energy efficiency.

What is the difference between clay brick and fire brick?

Because firebrick, also known as refractory brick or heat-resistant brick, is made of materials like alumina and silica, it can retain its integrity even after exposure to extreme temperatures. Common brick has some moderate heat-resistance, but cannot withstand high temperatures without deterioration.

What is firebrick made of?

Principal raw materials for firebrick include fireclays, mainly hydrated aluminum silicates; minerals of high aluminum oxide content, such as bauxite, diaspore, and kyanite; sources of silica, including sand and quartzite; magnesia minerals, magnesite, dolomite, forsterite, and olivine;
