Description / Abstract:

This Standard covers burned clay brick intended for use in masonry or in structural facing components of structures, or both.

The brick are prismatic units available in a variety of sizes, textures, colours, and shapes. This Standard is not intended to provide requirements for paving brick specified in ASTM Standard C902.

Brick are manufactured from clay, shale, or mixtures thereof, or similar naturally occurring earthy substances and subjected to a heat treatment at elevated temperatures (firing). The heat treatment must develop a fired bond between the particulate constituents to provide the strength and durability requirements of th is Standard.

Brick may be shaped during manufacture by moulding, pressing, or extrusion, and the shaping method may be used to describe the brick.

Three types of brick in each of two grades are covered.

The metric values used in this Standard are based on the International System of Units (SI). The metric units are a soft conversion of the imperial units, and thus both are interchangeable and valid
