Does the type of sand affect the durability of bricks
Coarse sand particles make more durable bricks than fine sand particles.
Bricks are ceramic blocks that are made from clay, sand and water. They are used in construction for building walls and pavements. The bricks are normally secured using mortar while they are being arranged in rows and/or stacked up. Mortar is a mixture of cement, sand and water.
Bricks are normally small in size. This makes it convenient for brick layers to work with them. It also enables construction work to be carried out in small and confined spaces
Bricks are durable and require very little maintenance. They are also non corrosive and are fire resistant
Bricks continue to have a very important place in the construction industry, despite being invented centuries ago.
