Brick clay is nowadays modified by various procedures to achieve the best properties when used for building ceramic products. In the treatment of these clays, the properties are regulated by changing the quantity of water, sharpening, lightening, venting, settling, using additives, but also by consistent homogenization, crushing, grinding and mixing.
This article compares several clay bricks before and after treatment and also compares them with ceramic clay. Comparative parameters are bulk density, porosity, water absorption, compressive strength and flexural strength, long-term changes in burning and weight loss by burning.
