Bonding Strength After Firing

Fireclay brick halves are bonded with a 1/16" thick joint. After air and oven drying and a 5 hour hold at the specified firing temperature, the MOR is determined for the brick/joint assembly. Five 9" bricks are required. At least 10 lbs. of mortar should be submitted for analysis.

Specimen Preparation and MOR: Same as ASTM C198
Specimen Firing: Same as Periodic Kiln Firing
