Glazed Brick

Glazed brick is one of the products in the construction industry, which dates back to many years before Christ. The use of glazed brick has been evident for a long time in construction and historical buildings.

In general, in the past, architects used glaze to prevent water penetration and create colorful and beautiful designs and covered the surface of bricks and tiles with glaze. In fact, glaze is created by combining clay and aluminum oxide in order to maintain a polished and glassy surface.

Glazed brick allows us to have an impenetrable surface on the brick and it will prevent dirt and staining of the surface. Glazing the brick makes the brick more abrasion resistance.

In some special cases, unburnt bricks are also coated with glaze, which will make the brick resistant to freezing. This type of brick is used in different climatic condition.
