Silicate brick is a pressed block made of a moistened mixture of quartz sand and lime. The unique resistibility of the material is attributed to autoclaving. In huge chambers (autoclaves), the blocks are exposed to high-pressure hot steam. The result is a resistible, monolithic structure of silicate bricks that can withstand a huge load.
It is necessary to distinguish between two types of silicate bricks for their intended purpose — ordinary and lining. Ordinary brick is used for laying walls, structural elements and require an obligatory external finishing. The lining brick has more stringent requirements for appearance and geometric shape; it is used in cladding facades of buildings, construction of fences and barriers, it does not require further decorative finishing.
Due to its properties and low cost, silicate single and one-and-a-half brick is widely used in the construction industry from the construction of low-rise buildings and structures of any type to the construction of multi-storey buildings and structures. As a rule, it is used for laying external and internal, load-bearing and self-bearing walls and partitions, filling voids in monolithic concrete structures, construction of barriers, arranging the outer parts of chimneys.
The relatively low moisture and heat resistance of the material imposes restrictions on its use in structures that are constantly exposed to water (foundations, sewer wells, etc.) and high temperatures (furnaces, chimneys, etc.).
