One important advantage of fireclay brick is its low iron content. This characteristic makes fireclay brick preferable for textile mills and paper/pulp industries where processing chemicals can leach iron from the brick and cause color contamination. Accordingly, these brick are seen as contributing to end product integrity.
In addition, fireclay brick's buff coloration is more light reflective than red shale brick. This can sometimes be a factor in illumination planning. For review of the physical properties of Belden fireclay chemical resistant brick, please refer to the Chemical Resistant Brick Properties page.
