Chemical Resistant Brick: Fire Clay Brick Shapes

One important advantage of fire clay brick is its low iron content. This characteristic makes fire clay brick preferable for textile mills and paper/pulp industries where processing chemicals can leach iron from the brick and cause color contamination. Accordingly, these brick are seen as contributing to end product integrity.

In addition, fire clay brick's buff coloration is more light reflective than red shale brick. This factor can sometimes be a factor in illumination planning. For review of the physical properties of Belden red shale chemical resistant brick, please refer to the Chemical Resistant Brick Properties page.
