An intrinsically more sustainable process
Fine Cast Brick is cured rather than kiln-fired. The product is ‘set’ by an exothermic reaction, which occurs when heat is released during the water and cement mix process. Each Fine Cast Brick uses 30% less energy to produce than a kiln-fired clay brick.
Kiln-fired clay bricks require an industrial kiln, fired at 1000+°C to ‘bake’ or ‘fire’ it. Commercial kilns are fired on average of 22 hours per day.
