Chemical Resistant Brick Properties

All Belden chemical resistant brick are manufactured to conform to or exceed ASTM C-279, and are generally available in the Type II designation. In some cases Type III are available. Minimum requirements regarding the ASTM C-279 specification standards are shown in the following table:
