METROBRICK THIN BRICK TEST RESULTS
The following test results show METROBRICK kiln-fired thin brick meets the standards for thin brick used in exterior application including the PCI Standard for thin brick. Not all thin bricks are tested for dimensional tolerances, water absorption standards, pull-out bond standards, freeze-thaw resistance and other specific requirements.
Ironrock’s METROBRICK Thin Brick shall be of standard grade quality and shall exceed all of the requirements of ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) C-1088, the standard specifications for thin veneer brick units made from clay or shale.
