SiBrick is an innovative solution for effective structural wall ceramics.
We fill the gaps in ceramic blocks with porous silicate material SioTherm that has very low thermal conductivity.
SiBrick technology allows the production of large ceramic blocks that have a lot of advantages towards ones filled with perlite or mineral fibers absolutely avoiding their disadvantages.
SiBrick technology provides the opportunity to produce large ceramic stone tiles with a thermal resistance of R=10m² °K/W (U-Wert= 0.1 W/m² °K) with a wall thickness of 50 cm.
The technology is very flexible and any structural ceramics (large blocks, clinker bricks etc.) can be filled with SioTherm – the combination of porous SioPor granules with SiCoat silicate binding.
Low-temperature drying (300 °C) expands SiCoat between SioPor granules to form the homogenous fill with fractal porosity.
This material we call SioTherm and it is used in effective elements of construction and industrial thermal insulation due to its characteristics and properties:
SiBrick allows to dramatically reduce energy consumption and CO2 emission during the production of ceramic blocks.
We can clearly see the difference in temperature needed for the production of different aggregates used for ceramic blocks:
Mineral fibers – 1500 °C
Perlite – 1100 °C
SiBrick (SioTherm filler) – 300 °C
Unlike mineral fiber filled ceramic blocks, the ones using SiBrick solution are 100% recyclable and do not require any special waste treatment.
The block can be crushed and separated with air.
Ceramic shards can be utilized in a conventional way as all the bricks.
While SioTherm filler can be crushed and reused for SiBrick production or as an effective aggregate for extra-light concretes.
SiBrick solution is available even for hollow clinker bricks and in combination with large ceramic blocks.
This allows avoiding plaster usage and customers can have brick houses with warm walls and perfect facade look of any clinker stone.
SiBrick technology is simple and reliable.
And can be installed almost at any modern structural ceramics production facility.
It is important to note that SiBrick production can utilize the secondary heat of brick production kilns and furnaces as it requires the temperature of just 300 °C.
