To ensure the quality of any construction work. The standard brick construction is also one of the top concerns of homeowners. At the same time, which type of bricks is used for the quality and best for the project? Or updating construction brick quotes is also a problem that many people deserve to worry about.
TYPES OF LAND TILES – POPULAR CONSTRUCTION TILES
On the market today there are quite a lot of different types of bricks. Each type has its own features. Suitable for each use and construction purpose.
Therefore, before starting to build, you need to learn and choose the right brick for each part of the project. This will help ensure maximum quality and enhance the longevity of your home.
Today’s baked brick is commonly used as the main product used in building construction. With modern technology of modern tuynel furnace, the product is created without harming the environment, diverse in size, uniform quality, not dependent on weather, taking advantage of multiple production capacities.
Brick construction is used to build walls and flooring.
Currently, there are two types of bricks used most commonly: solid bricks and brick holes (hollow bricks).
Fired clay solid bricks are solid bricks produced from clay minerals. Add in additives, manufactured by plastic compression and heated at appropriate temperatures
Bricks are rectangular in shape with flat sides. There may be grooves or ripples on the sides of bricks. It is allowed to manufacture bricks with rounded corners not greater than 16mm in diameter on cross-sections perpendicular to the extrusion direction.
|Brick Type||Property||Quality||Testing method||Sample specifications|
|Solid clay bricks||Strength and flexion||TCVN 1451 : 1986||TCVN 355-2÷3:2009||Take any 50 tablets from each lot|
|Water absorption %||Greater than 8 and less than 18||TCVN 6355-4:2009|
Constructed solid bricks often have a solid feature due to their compacted and heated terracotta properties. That is why special fired bricks are often used to build individual houses. Helps bring certainty, absolute safety to the process of construction and use.
BRICK TILES (TUBE TILES)
Perforated brick is terracotta brick line produced from the main material source from clay. Use a large heat source to make brick holes to build houses
Perforated bricks are divided into different categories such as 2-hole bricks, 4-hole bricks, 6-hole bricks, … The manufacturing process is the same, but depending on the number of holes people use in different areas.
The main difference between a brick hole and a solid brick is the structure. Accordingly, hole bricks have holes inside the brick, which can be 2, 3, 4, 6 or 10 holes depending on design requirements. Because of the structure with holes inside, this building brick uses less material, so the price is cheaper. However, hollow bricks have low compression resistance (MAC), high water absorption.
In contrast, solid bricks have the structure of a transparent block without holes. Therefore, it costs more raw materials to produce, and the price is more expensive. But in return, the solid brick is strong and less absorbent. Used for projects with high quality requirements.
CONSTRUCTION TILES STANDARDS
- Color: uniform and cherry red (bronze)
Edge: uniform and sharp
No surface cracking
There will be a signature sound when typing and will not break when dropped on the ground, on a flat surface from a height of 600 mm.
The surface of the brick is smooth, the particle size must be uniform, without impurities such as lime, organic matter, or cracking occurs and contains air holes and salt. . . affect the color and durability of the brick.
- The brick does not burn
The compressive strength of standard masonry bricks used in all types of structures should not be less than 75kg / sq.cm except the case specified when tested according to IS: 3495
After immersion in cold water for 24 hours, the absorbed amount should not exceed 15% of the dry weight of the tile when tested according to IS: 3495
Flowering in bricks (patterned bricks) must be within the limits specified at (no more than 10% of the exposed area of the brick, the salt thin deposit will be paid) IS: 3495
CHARACTERISTICS AND SIZE OF LAND TILES – CONSTRUCTION TILES
Building terracotta bricks also known as baked bricks or baked clay bricks. This is a clay product with added additives. Go through a forming process and be heated at the right temperature. Fired brick is a type of building material used to build partitions and surrounding walls.
This type of product is manufactured with clay as the main material. The clay was exploited to remove impurities and mixed with water solvent. Stuffing thoroughly then shaping with mold to create a raw product or called carpentry. Product size depends on the size of the mold. Carpentry bricks are dried or dried then put into the oven. The raw materials used for burning are charcoal, or coal mixed with mud placed under the furnace. Carpentry bricks are burned for many hours until the ripe bricks turn dark red, cool off the oven then remove the bricks.
The average size is about 220 x 105 x 55 (mm) corresponding to the length – width – height. Weight 2- 2.5 kg / tablet. Solid bricks usually have 3 types, with decreasing quality A1, A2, B. Solid bricks are often used for high pressure projects such as industrial buildings, water tanks, foundation tunnels, … In addition, solid brick Can be used to build high-class villas requiring high waterproof, sound and heat insulation.
TICKET BRICK (1 BLUE TILES, 2 HOLE TILES, 3 HOLE TILES – SUPER NICE TILES)
This type of brick is commonly found in many different large and small projects. Pink red, or dark red. This type of brick is often used for construction in locations that are not bearing, or do not require waterproofing (such as building walls, fences, constructing auxiliary structures such as toilets).
4 BLUE RED TILES
4-hole hollow red brick has the common size of 190x80x80mm, often built with 100mm thick walls, high-rise buildings. The advantage of this type of brick is that it is light weight, so the construction progress does not take time and effort, the price is affordable to help homeowners save costs. However, the waterproofing capacity and the bearing capacity are not high.
6-BLUE RED RICE – TUYNEL BRICK
6-hole hollow red brick – Tuynel brick, larger in size: 220x105x150mm, with pink red and dark red characteristic of red brick. 6-hole hollow red brick has heat insulation but poor water resistance and resistance, so it is often used in areas that do not withstand and do not require moisture resistance such as partition walls.
11 HOLE TILES
This type of brick is pink red, or dark red. Usually built in locations where there is no bearing, or where waterproofing is required, or as a heat-resistant layer for roofs. The outer wall can be combined with hollow brick and solid brick. Another name is also called tuynel brick. This type of brick can build walls 150 thick (including plaster will be 150 thick).
RED BRICK NOT PLASTERED.
- Solid brick without plaster: size 220x110x60mm
Brick 2 holes without plastering size 210x100x60mm
Brick without plastering 3 diagonal holes, size 210x100x60mm
Brick without plastering 2 dark holes, size 210x100x60mm
Non-plastered 11-hole brick, size 210x100x60mm
Brick 3 holes without plastering size 210x100x60mm
