Construction using firebricks has a special charm, and today its numerous benefits have led architects and engineers to use this material to execute the most beautiful building facades. Refractory bricks are made from refractory and porcelain clay (Kaolin), which has a thinner and denser structure compared to other bricks. It is interesting to know that when performing building facades using refractory bricks, more art and precision are needed, and this has made the refractory brick facade attractive and superior. So, it is better to use experienced, skilled and proficient installers of how to install and fasten refractory bricks. Refractory bricks have a great variety in color, size and design, and many creative designers, when making refractory bricks, use them randomly, which in addition to being beautiful and elegant in the facades, the difference in style, They show the design and color in each of the refractory bricks used. Refractory bricks have different advantages over other materials in the installation and execution stages due to their high strength, good water absorption and also high adhesion in contact with mortar.
Today, with the use of refractory bricks, significant quality and durability can be expected from a brick facade.
From time immemorial to the present day, a task has been placed on the facades of buildings, a task of resistance and protection. Architects must pay considerable attention to the selection of quality materials to protect brick facades against various weather, climatic and other factors. Creating and constructing structures and buildings with brick facades that remain resistant to wind, rain, heat and cold will not be everyone's job. Today, all over the world, the need for cities to have a durable and professional look is paramount.
These types of refractory facade bricks have the best colors and designs and have attracted the attention and satisfaction of architects and engineers.
Use of refractory bricks in the facade of the building In addition to thermal resistance, compressive strength, stable quality, durability and flexibility against various climatic conditions, are among the factors that have led to the use of refractory bricks in the facade of buildings. If you use firebricks with standard formulation, you can be sure that the facade of the building will remain attractive for several years and will remain the same as on the first day. Adherence to the standards of color stability and anti-dandruff of refractory bricks at the time of production, guarantees the necessary quality in the long run, and after several years of installation, discoloration or deformation, algae or dandruff will not be observed on its surface. Building façade is an identity and cultural debate.
Just as clothing represents a person's personality, the facade of a building represents the owner's personality, the location of the property, and the type of use of the building.
By examining and observing the firebrick facade, it can be seen that the superiority and unique features of firebrick in buildings are due to their high diversity in different colors and designs. The color of refractory bricks lies in its essence, and in fact this factor has made the appearance of refractory bricks special and eye-catching. If you look at the facade of a firebrick building for hours, your eyes will not feel tired. Today, fireproof bricks are used to protect and maintain the building against frequent wear and tear, and can be used in all climatic conditions.
Creating a facade using refractory bricks is a post-modern facade.
Refractory bricks are also used in the inner lining of industrial furnaces due to their high resistance to heat. There are different types of refractory bricks and they can withstand different ranges of temperatures depending on the type of raw materials used in their composition. Until the 1960s, carbon and refractory clay were used to cover kilns, but today they are used in the interior lining of kilns by making a variety of refractory bricks. Refractory bricks that use special elements such as AL2O3 and SIO2 in their raw materials, when baked at high temperatures, create the final product with considerable cohesion against other bricks that in any situation Climatic and resistant to any fluctuations in temperature and humidity, it also has a long life and due to its resistance to abrasion and erosion, its durability is tens of times longer than ordinary bricks.
How to identify refractory bricks
Refractory bricks are easily recognizable by their appearance, so that the surface of refractory bricks is rougher, rougher and without additional soil than other bricks. Also, the shape and appearance of refractory bricks have small colored grains. Note that when you use standard refractory bricks, the facade of your building will last for years and will not cause any decay or corrosion and will not lose its color over time, will not dandruff and Its surface does not corrode. Furnaces used to bake refractory bricks are tunnel and shuttle. In tunnel furnaces, heat is not distributed evenly and the result is different and random performances. Sometimes, due to excessive heat in different parts of the furnace, the bricks in that part cause the bricks to warp and the size of the bricks is out of the standard and most of the time it is smaller than usual. If the brick is produced in a tunnel, the heat is the same in all its different parts, and as a result all the colors are in the same range and no change in their size will be observed. Refractory bricks baked in tunnel kilns have higher strengths and higher environmental pollution standards than refractory bricks baked in tunnel kilns.
Tips on how to fasten refractory bricks
Wet the brick joint before installing the refractory bricks
The minimum and maximum placement of mortar behind the brick should be between 2 to 4 cm.
The best temperature for installing refractory bricks is between 5 and 35 degrees Celsius.
As far as possible, no display operations should be performed during frost.
Do not use any organic matter in the sand and water used in mortars
The best time to fasten is at least a few weeks after installing the brick.
Moisten the range of the firebrick
The best time to use the mortar prepared for bonding is a maximum of 2 to 3 hours.
Knead the bonding mortar for a few minutes, in order to homogenize it
Do not use the mortar plate for fastening
Place the mortar on the tie pen and then between the grooves of the two bricks
Do not use a damp cloth to remove excess mortar between the grooves
Use the brush, after 2 hours, to remove excess mortar between the grooves
First, completely dry the structure, then use resin to waterproof the brick.
Why is the facade of refractory brick superior
High quality Proper water absorption Production in expert dimensions for any type of design Ability to produce in different dimensions (based on style and customer order) Bestsellers and beautiful Natural and unchangeable colors against the sun Use of natural and desirable raw materials Resistant to abrasion, scratches and scratches Acid and base resistance Insulation against cold and heat Resistant to frost and weather conditions Resistant to fire and natural factors Lasting beauty Produced in various colors Appropriate water absorption rate Eco-friendly
