Let’s start with functions of cemented brick
Cemented Bricks are the essential elements of the construction industry. It is more than what it seems to be, as the complete structural load is bear by it, thus it needs to be of top quality, strong, durable and also affordable to buy and maintain. It is a key element in masonry construction.
A key component and its contribution is structural support
As we all know it plays a major role in masonry work, let’s discuss its composition and role played in strengthening and support. If we talk about the traditional way it is a unit of clay, rectangular in shape. Bricks are produced in numerous classes, types, materials, and sizes which vary with region and time period, and are produced in bulk quantities. Two basic categories of bricks are fired and unfired bricks or we can say clay composed or concrete based.
Industrial revolution’s impact on technological advancement
With the onset of industrial revolution demand for bricks increased rapidly, more and more construction affected demand & supply graph thus resulted in the evolution of concrete/non fired cemented bricks. Produced in bulk with pre-quality and durability check is what we called technological advancement. With time change is inevitable, nowadays to meet the upcoming demand-supply ratio people has come up with effective alternates.
The raw material used in making cemented bricks are
- Fly ash
- Sand/Stone dust
- Ordinary Portland Cement/(Lime+Gypsum)
What we should expect from modern days bricks? If we discuss parameters these few questions hit our mind!
- What are the strength, durability, and maintenance?
- Does it is according to climatic condition?
- Will it support structural load?
- Distribution of load and maintain indoor walls.
To settle all these queries we will explain about Cemented bricks components and manufacturing and measures of strength bricks
1. Types and use of cemented bricks-
Cemented bricks can be used to build homes as well as garden structures such as retaining walls, and driveway and walkway pavements etc. There are wide ranges of bricks such as Construction Cement Bricks, Cement Solid Brick, Cement Hollow Blocks, Cement Bricks, Fly Ash Cement Bricks, and Building Cement Bricks.
2. Key features of cemented bricks-
- High strength,
- perfect finish,
- Cracks resistance.
- Different shapes and sizes.
3. Key ingredients of cemented bricks-
It is a mixture of powdered cement, water, sand, and gravel. This produces a light gray block with a fine surface texture and a high compressive strength. In general, the concrete mixture used for blocks has a higher percentage of sand and a lower percentage of gravel and water than these concrete mixtures is used for general construction purposes. This produces a very dry, stiff mixture that holds its shape when it is removed from the block mold. In addition to the basic components, the concrete mixture used to make blocks may also contain various chemicals, called admixtures just to alter curing time, increase compressive strength and improve workability.
A thorough quality control check is done to provide cemented blocks with excellent quality to its buyers.
Advantages of using cemented bricks-
- Compressive strength for structure load support.
- Easily available in bulk.
- Can be molded as per design and climatic condition.
- Quality control
These all factors make it a right choice in the construction industry and for more details please contact raj minerals contact no 9414169137 for bulk orders.
